Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.
This sounds easy peasy! All we have to do is let the Lord know what we want to do and he will give us the plan on how to do it. Easy enough right? Wrong! Why do we, maybe I should speak for myself, why is it that I have a “bright” idea I go ahead with it and when things don’t work out like I think they should I’m looking like ??
It’s because I did not consult God first! Has that ever happened to you? I am going to commit to putting God first. There are some benefits to putting Him first.
- you don’t waste your time
- when you’re in God’s Will you have peace through the process
- God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts so things could work out way better than we anticipated
Those are just 3 things that could happen when we commit what we’re doing to the Lord.
When we commit what we’re doing to the Lord and He establishes our plans, that does not mean trouble will not come. When God establishes your plans and trouble comes you will have peace in the midst of your trouble because you know He will never leave or forsake you. If you do not have peace during trouble it could be God didn’t establish your plans or He did establish your plans and you’re not fully trusting Him.
Let’s live life like God intended for us to live, free! We don’t have stress whenever things don’t go our way we just need to trust in Him. His Word is true. Cast your cares on Him, He cares for you! Remember Daniel in the lions den? The Lord didn’t take him out of the den He was with Daniel in the den. We will have to go through some stuff. I imagine Daniel fully trusted in the Lord and he came out victorious. You can do the same thing. Whatever your lions den may be, know that God is with you and you can be victorious just do your part and trust in Him! Do it right the first time by consulting God in all you do. If you haven’t already, accept Christ as your personal Savior and began to live! Continue to Be Blessed!
