My thoughts on this: When a man decides to marry and chooses his soulmate, and out of nowhere his soulmate chooses to end the relationship then, Proverbs 16:9 is protecting this man from his heart that sadly chose the wrong soul mate leaving God to guide his life, for his real true love.

My heart may think out and understand to go and or do a certain thing but the Lord may and does most of the time direct me a different way. The Lord directs my steps . Establishes my way. I want my Lord to direct my steps because His way is best.
