May the Lord establish His Word

1 Samuel 1: 23 Elkanah her husband said to her, “Do what seems best to you; wait until you have weaned him; only, may the Lord establish his word.” So the woman remained and nursed her son until she weaned him.

I think this is an interesting idea. “Do what seems best to you, only, may the Lord establish his word.” In other words – do what you think is best, but we still pray that the will of the Lord be done. I think this is a great balance between desiring to honor god with our decision and doing what we feel is best. The Bible’s answer is, “both.” We don’t need to balance our decision making with honoring the Lord. We can do what we feel is best, and still at the same time be praying, “may the Lord establish his word.”
