Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3
Do you commit to the Lord everything you do? You know He’s not just talking about the big stuff. He’s talking about ALL stuff. God wants us to give Him the controls for everything we do, say, and encounter throughout our days. That means the little stuff that we don’t think matters as well as the big stuff. We need to let God rule over our movie and music choices, our temper with our kids, what we do and don’t agree to take on in our lives, our happiness and attitude as we keep our homes picked up and clean – all of it!
I think sometimes we encounter opposition or our days go a little awry because we are trying to handle them on our own. It’s not supposed to be that way. God is on our side and He wants to help us succeed. So it’s not a “control issue” with Him – but with us! If we could only see that giving Him control won’t restrict us – it will free us.
Stop right now, and bow your head and say a prayer. Commit your day and tasks over to the Lord today.
