Proverbs 16:3

“Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established”

This is such a powerful message of blessing from the Lord.  Simply by entrusting in Him all of our plans with all of our heart, we receive His blessing of fulfilment.

It is an apt and timely reminder for many of us who are consumed by the hectic hustle and bustle of daily life — providing for ourselves and for our families financially and otherwise, building our riches, craving recognition.  In the midst of this noise, we neglect knowingly or unknowingly, to spend quiet time to speak with God and to listen to His plans for us.

No matter how hard we try or, how passionately we strive, without the Lord’s guidance and direction, there is no clear path ahead of us.

God has plans for us.  Those plans may or may not be the same as the plans that we have made for ourselves.  Yet, as we learn to tread the road that God has prepared for us, we become the person God wants us to become, and we reach the place where God wants us to be.

It’s not to say that you should leave your fate up in the air!  But that, we should take God with us where we want to go.  Ask for his blessing.  By putting God at the center of what we do, we become committed to do our best.

Do you honestly know your place in this world?  Let Him lead the way.
