“We plan the way we want to live,
but only God makes us able to live it.”
Proverbs 16:9

God will wreck your plans
when He sees that your plans
are about to wreck you.

Thank you for your response!
I send these bible verse-quotes to many people on a daily basis.
Most, or all of them, are familiar with reading a more modern translation.
That's why the version used on any given day can be different.

Book of proverbs was written by King Solomon to his son(s) which is probably why in KJV the wording is quite gender specific to a man. NIV translates in a general way, but no dad would give wisdom to his son and mean it was for humans. Especially when he gets to Proverbs 31 and talks about finding a virtuous woman. Notice he's not saying in KJV who can find a virtuous human?
