“Commit your activities to the Lord, and your plans will be achieved.” (Proverbs 16:3)
Do we, as Christinas, ever stop to think about why we have such a hard time achieving our goals, and sometimes don’t even achieve them? Many of us, today, live under so much stress because we work so hard, for so long, neglecting our personal well-being, our families, and many other important things, yet we never seem to achieve anything. We are tired, grumpy, and unsatisfied, and we just want to isolate from everyone, including those we love, and who love us. Why is this happening to us? I believe today’s verse of Scripture has the answer. Let’s take a deeper look.
- “Commit your activities to the Lord,” – this literally means to transfer everything we have to do to God, and do everything as if He was watching us do it, and as if He were our boss. Let Him direct your way in everything you do, after all He is Omniscient. This applies to all activities we may be involved in, whether it be personal, family, work, school, or play. God, through the Apostle Paul, says:
“Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men, (Colossians 3:23).”
The word, “whatever”, is all inclusive, which means that there should be nothing we do should be done to honor men, but God. We do not work for men, but for God, no matter what we do.
- “and your plans will be achieved.” – only if we do all things according to God’s will and guidance, will God will help us do it, and do it exceptionally well. God never does a mediocre job, so if we follow His guidance and everything according to his will, we will do exceptionally well.
According to today’s Scriptures, I am convinced that, if we put into practice what we’ve just learned in every area of our lives, we will be successful in our personal lives, family lives, at work, at school, and at play, and we will be more content.
- how will we obey today’s Scriptures?
- With whom will we share today’s Scriptures?
- With whom will we share the story of our salvation and the story of what Jesus has done for us?
In Christ’s love,
