“Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.” Proverbs 16:3
I woke up in the night with this scripture running through my mind and so had to look it up. The NLT reads “Commit your actions to the Lord and your plans will succeed.” Psalm 37:5 says, “Commit they way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.”
There are many thoughts that come into our mind every day, some good, some not so good. We think of things we would like to do and places we would like to go. We ask the Lord for direction as to whether these thoughts are from Him or not. We pray for His will and His guidance.
According to these scriptures, if we put our trust in Him, place everything in His hands, He will show us what is the right way to go. If these things are in His will, He will cause our plans to succeed and bring them to fulfilment. If not, He will change our thinking, and give us the right direction. The secret is committing everything to Him, and letting Him guide.
Prayer: Lord today we desire to be led by your Spirit, to commit our ways entirely to you and accept the guidance and wisdom you provide.
