What does it mean when it says: " A Man's Heart Plans His Own Way; But The Lord Directs All Of His Steps " - in, Proverbs Chapter 16?

Proverbs 16 [ verse 9 ]....
In Proverbs Chapter 16 [ verse 9 ] the scripture ( very clearly ) states: " A Man's Heart Plans His Own Way [ Indicating His Own Free Will At All Times ]; But The Lord Directs All Of His Steps [ While Pointing Out, That It Is God Who Draws His Attention To All Of Those Ponderable Choices ] ".

After all, if you would then go back and read verse 4, you would also know that: " The Lord Has Made All For Himself [ To Display His Own Glory ]; Yeah Even The Wicked For His Day Of Destruction [ When Everything, Then, Shall Finally Be Settled ] ".

For instance:

And, in The Book Of Joel Chapter 2 [ Rather Than Billy's Own Song Lyrics ], we can ( quite honestly ) read all of the following:
" And, it shall come to pass afterward, that I Will Pour Out My Own Spirit Upon All Flesh [ Whether Or Not They Are Believers In Me ]Your Sons and Your Daughters shall ProphesyYour Old Men shall Dream Dreamsand Your Young Men shall See Visions.

And, also, Upon My Menservants And Upon My Maidservants 
I Will Pour Out My Own Spirit In Those Days [ For They, Too, Shall Need To Know Far More ].
And, I will show wonders in The Heavens [ Even Before They, Actually, Occur ]; and in The Earth there shall be: Blood [ Indiscriminate And Nationwide Killings ], Fire [ To Uproot Those Spiritually Complacent Ones ], and Pillars Of Smoke [ To Demonstrate My True Foreknowledge And Absolute Authority ].

The Sun 
[ Whom You Now, Quite Honestly, Worship ] shall be Turned Into Darkness [ To Display Your Own Utter Foolishness ]and The Moon [ Whom You Now, Quite Honestly, Ignore ] into Blood [ As A Sign Of What Is Now Very Soon In Coming ]before The Coming Of The Great And Awesome Day Of The Lord

And, it shall come to pass that, Whoever Calls Upon The Name Of The Lord [ Should They Be Wise Enough To Now Even Know It ] Shall Be Saved

For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as The Lord has said, Among The Remnant Whom The Lord Calls. " - Joel 2:28-32.

All Scripture is given by the inspiration of God; and is profitable for: Doctrine, Reproof, Correction and Instruction In Righteousness - so that, the man of God may be complete; and thoroughly equipped for every good work.

All Scripture includes The Old Testament!
2nd Timothy 3:16-17 is one of the most important scriptures that may be found in The Entire Christian Bible; and yet, there are so very few of us who ( quite honestly ) now ponder Its True And Relevant Meaning.

You see, dear brothers and sisters, ' The Term All Scripture Refers To Every Solitary Passage Found Within All Of Those Pages Of That Bible '... and, indeed, our own spiritual habit of carefully selecting among them has now led to all of the very problems that we suffer!

For instance, in Isaiah Chapter 1 [ verses 18-20 ], it ( very clearly ) says:
" ' Come Now, And Let Us Reason Together [ Let Us Now Think These Things Through Quite Logically ], ' says The Lord' Though your sins are like scarlet [ In So Many Other Areas Of Your Own Personal Life ]they shall be as white as snow [ In Your Own Dealings With Me ]though they are red like crimson [ In Your Own Stumbling Walk, Over And Over Again ]they shall be as wool [ Since, I Shall Provide For Your Own Personal Forgiveness And Healing ].
If You Are Willing And Obedient [ In Earnestly Attempting To Live By All That I Will Teach You ], You Shall Eat The Good Of The Land [ Just As Any Child Is Carefully Watched Over By His Own Loving Parent ]But If You Refuse And Rebel [ And Display Yourselves To Others As Having No Part In My Household ]You Shall Be Devoured By The Sword [ Since, I Do Not Spare The Habitation Of My Enemies ] '; for The Mouth Of The Lord has spoken it. ' " - Isaiah 1:18-20.

What is the meaning of: " Bye Bye American Pie "?
And indeed, whether you now know it or not, ' The Principles Set Forth Within This Scriptural Passage Have Not Changed Even One Little Bit In All Of Those Thousands Of Years '!

In fact, if anything, Our Own American History Has Prominently Illustrated The Very Point That He's Making....

You see, dear brothers and sisters, ' America Was Greatest And Enjoyed The Goodness Of It's Land; When Their Own People Were Willing And Obedient To God '... and, whether you now comprehend it or not, it had nothing to do with: Our Leadership In Washington, The Treaties That They Signed, The Allies That They Chose, The Military Technology That They Developed, or ( even ) Those Borders That They Most Often Quite Frankly Neglected.

In fact, you shall all very soon understand that: " We Cannot Make America Great Again By Adopting All Of Those Political And Spiritual Positions That Are Completely Antithetical To All Of Our Own Ancestors "! Since, whether you believe it or not, We Are Already Now Passing Under His Own Rod....

What is ( quite honestly ) meant by: " The Way Of Cain ", " The Error Of Balaam ", and " The Rebellion Of Korah " - in, The Book Of Jude?

The Book Of Jude - is all about Spiritual Apostasy.
In The Book Of Jude we can read all about The Rapid Rise Of Spiritual Apostasy Within The Very Early Church... and, indeed, it is really no wonder that Modern Day Christianity has now strayed so far from The One True Path.

In fact, there are Three Very Specific Reasons that are broadly provided as being largely behind all of it; and these are presented for your own personal consideration as: " The Way Cain [ who trusted in his own understanding ] ", " The Error Of Balaam [ who saw an opportunity for financial profit in everything ] ", and " The Rebellion Of Korah [ who would say or do anything to obtain his own base of power ] ".

What does The Bible have to say about: " Tattoos "?

An interesting example of A Christian Tattoo.
As ( so frequently ) happens these days, I often have to look no further than My Own Email Inbox to find a subject that is worthy of truthfully addressing. Such as quite honestly happened this morning, when I actually discovered an interesting email from Tom Brown Ministries in El Paso, Texas.

Meanwhile, of course, the tagline simply read: " What Does The Bible Say About Tattoos? "; and being more a product of Berea [ that means: " The Well-Watered Garden " ] than that of Thessalonica [ which means: " That Dry, Barren, And Rock Strewn Land " ], I just couldn't stop myself from clicking upon his own link to that article.

And, indeed, Here's The Interesting Response That I Found....
" Bible Answer: The main passage that is used by some Christians to forbid tattoos and body piercing is Leviticus 19:28: "Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.” Sounds like a clear prohibition, doesn’t it, until you recognize this is part of The Mosaic Law that the believer is not under obligation to follow. Before one uses this passage to forbid tattoos, they should take a look at the previous command: “Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard” ( Lev 19:27 ). I haven’t seen many Christians with uncut beards, have you?
The issue of tattoos and body piercing falls under The Category Of Disputable Matters mentioned in Romans Chapter 14: “Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way” ( verse 13 ). Now simply because you feel like there is nothing wrong with tattoos is not a reason to put one on you. I do not personally feel anything is wrong with a Christ-centered tattoo, however, I know it might offend others for me to have one, so I refuse to even consider it ( of course I hate needles too ).
Someone at this point might argue, “Well, I just think that God is absolutely against us putting tattoos on our body, because our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.” Well I understand your position, but remember, according to The Book of Revelation, God will put his name and number on our foreheads. So, even He will put a mark on us.
Marks on bodies have signified for centuries what kind of person an individual is. In The Book Of Revelation there were some that had the mark of the beast which signified the kind of people they were, so God counters and gives His mark to His servants to show the righteous character of His people. In the end, no doubt, a Christian should only have a Christ-centered tattoo if he is going to have one. "
