Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your works to the LORD, and your thoughts shall be established.”
The way we think – about challenges, about situations, about our work, about others, about our self – affects our lives more than we realize. What if the greatest challenge to your destiny isn’t the devil? What if the greatest challenge to your destiny, to your purpose, is you? Many times we put the limits on ourselves. We tell ourselves what we can and cannot do, what we can and cannot accomplish. We tell ourselves “this is how far I can go”, “this is all I can do”. What if when you finally got to heaven you found out you could’ve done more? As you’re starting a new business venture, or a new job, or school project, or even just as you start your day, commit (put to charge) your plans to God – that means be open to how He can lead you: He can interrupt your plan, show you another way of doing something; and He will direct your thoughts, give you new ideas, maybe give shortcuts or a better way of doing a thing. It’s all in your mind and the attitude of your heart.
“I commit my day, my plans to You Lord. You can interrupt me anytime to reveal Your plans, Your thoughts, Your ways. I stand in the Name of Jesus Christ, amen.”
