Genesis 32 - Key


And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob [is] behind us. For he said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.

I think Jacob did a wise thing. He did what he could to make peace with his brother, and he prayed and asked the Lord for help with the situation. We should trust the Lord and call on Him to help us, but we should also be faithful to do the right thing as well as we can.


Proverbs 16:9
A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.

First, I should ask the Lord for wisdom about things. But then, if no special revelation comes, sometimes it's also OK to try to make some good plans for the future.

When I pray for the Lord's help in situations, I'll also do the best I can to do what He wants me to do in those situations.
