Today’s verse for reflection:

 Praise the Lord! Yes, give praise, O servants of the Lord.  Praise the name of the Lord! Blessed be the name of the Lord, now and forever (Psalm 113: 1-2)

Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established (Proverbs 16:3).

Have you ever had your plans fall apart? I certainly have. I have had numerous plans canceled by sickness or some other issue. Solomon gives us a general principle to follow. When we dedicate our plans, our work, to the Lord He will see that they come to pass. One of my problems is that I have left the Lord out of some of my plans!

When we plan some project, perhaps the first thing we should do is commit it to God. God has the wisdom and power to see that our plans are realized. Of course, when we commit our plans to the Lord, we want Him to cancel any plans that are outside His will. The more we commit our ways to the Lord, the more we will see His hand helping us. Yes, He may repeal some of our plans, but isn’t that what we desire when we step outside His will?

With all the uncertainties in life one thing we can count on is God’s faithfulness. You will never go wrong when you submit your plans to Him.

Father, thank You for Your hand of guidance over my life. Forgive me when I make plans which I fail to commit to You. As I commit my ways to You, I believe You will always lead me in harmony with Your desires. Your will be done, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
