Under Gods Command

Proverbs 16:3 –Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. 

There are different ways to fail to commit whatever we do to the LORD.

  • Some people commit their work only superficially.  They say the project is being done for the LORD, but in reality they are doing it for themselves.
  • Others give God temporary control of their interest, only to take control back the moment things stop going the way they expect.
  •  Still others commit a task fully to the LORD, but put forth no effort themselves, and then they wonder why they do not succeed.

We must maintain a delicate balance: trusting God as if everything depended on him, while working as if everything depended on us.  Think of a specific effort in which you are involved right now.  Have you committed it to the LORD?
