The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. Proverbs 18:16 Means that we should be faithful to use the gifts that God has given us and that as we use them our faith will be strengthened. Prayer is the #1
A man’s gift opens doors for him, and brings him before great men. https://biblehub.com/proverbs/18-16.htm
We have different bibles that have been rewritten to make the bible easier to understand. Some people don’t see this because they are used to the bible they grew up with. Many times, I have had to look up a bible verse, because I didn’t comprehend the words from the old book. I would read the whole chapter to really do my research. It is called learning all I can about God and HIs righteousness. Have a wonderful day full of blessings.
