King Solomon, the wisest king - Yes, he wrote much of the book of Proverbs. In my reading this morning was this verse -
"How can we understand the road we travel? It is the Lord who directs our steps."
Proverbs 20 v 24
So, I suppose, if someone as clever as Solomon can ask such a question - maybe it is OK for me to puzzle about it as well.
But, there again, why can't I remember the second half of the verse?
God wants what's best for me - what I want is probably not best.
