9 The heart of man plans his way,
but the LORD
establishes his steps.
Proverbs 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap,
but its every decision is from the LORD.
Proverbs 21:1 The king's heart is a stream of water in
the hand of the LORD;
he turns it wherever he will.

never leave you nor forsake you."

what can man do to me?"
