Proverbs 3: 5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
I love this verse. I love it because it enables us, with trust that God will direct you, to remove all worries, lay them at His feet and let someone who is perfect deal with them.
In my devotional (A Man after God’s Own Heart, by Jim George), it says that “every major accomplishment requires a high level of commitment”, and I believe that is the same when it comes to faith.
I know full well, that I need to be a lot more committed when it comes to God, but I also know that He knows what my struggles are, and he will help so long as I ask for it and include him in the decision making process.
In the end, God gave us free will to do with as we please, so we have the free will not to include God and not to commit to God by leaving him out, but the risks we run by doing so are too great to do so.
I would like to leave the prayer that was at the end of this devotional, because what it says is true. We need to include God so that we may glorify Him with our actions and bless the lives of those around us
“God, I commit my plans to You today. Help me to honour You in all I do. Thank You for guiding me so that my decisions may glorify You and bless the people around me. Amen”
Have a blessed day.
