Commit your works to the Lord
And your plans will be established.
Proverbs 16:3 NASB
We can make the best plans, but they won’t come to anything if they are not established by the Lord.
When Jesus is your Lord, He becomes your master. What He says goes! If you say He is Lord, but then don’t follow His ways, or choose to do what you want, He really isn’t your Lord.
When you do follow His ways, when you are aligned to His will, all of Heaven gets behind you, because God’s ways always prevail. He is God! There is none like Him!
When you make decisions, do you run them through the Lord? Do you make plans and come up with ideas and then get frustrated when the Lord doesn’t see them through?
The issue is one of alignment. Are you aligned with the Word and will of God? If not, and you consider yourself a child of God, your plans will always come to nothing. You are basically saying that you want all the benefits of being a child of God, but want to do what you want. It doesn’t work like that.
When you commit your ways to the Lord, you start to see things from the Lord’s perspective. Your desires start to take a backseat and His desires become front and center. It’s the best place to be!
Lord, let my heart and mind be set on You. Let my desires be what You desire. Let my plans be what You want, that I might walk in Your will and way.
