Proverbs 21:2

"Every man's way is right in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the hearts." (NASB)


"Every man's way is right (yashar: upright, righteous, straight, convenient, just, well) in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs (takan: regulates, measures, estimates, ponders, proves) the hearts."


Every man’s way is upright and straight in his own eyes, but the LORD measures and proves the hearts.


It is simply not enough to be personally convinced that the path you are on is the one to remain on. It is easy to convince ourselves sometimes and many decisions are made because certain paths bring about what we desire. Thankfully, the LORD examines and proves our intentions, motives and true desires. All secrets and intentions are laid bare before Him and He chooses to guide us. Today, surrender your ways – even the ones that seem right and just in your own eyes. Be assured that your every step is in agreement with His ways for your life. Here is where His perfect will for you resides.
