Commit it to Him
Happy New Year! Joel and I pray that you’ve been blessed and refreshed this holiday season. Welcome to 2013! Can you believe it’s already here?
If you’re like most, you’re probably making your list of goals and to-do’s for the new year. You may have even pulled out last year’s list attempting to pick up where you left off. But no matter what your goals are, I just want to encourage you with this scripture in Proverbs 16:3, “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”
Now when you commit something to Him, that means you put everything about it in His hands. It means you trust Him with the process and the results. It also means that you are willing to lay it down if you sense Him speaking to your heart, “This isn’t the right thing for you right now.”
Maybe you don’t have any specific goals or plans for the new year yet. Maybe you’ve had some circumstances that have thrown you off course or you’ve just felt overwhelmed by life. Your part is to just commit each day to Him and let Him lead you moment by moment. Someone said one time, “My five-year plan is the same as my five-minute plan—hear from the Lord and do what He says.” You’ll never be disappointed by following His leading. Scripture says His plans are always for our good. He wants to give us hope and a good future. He delights in the prosperity of His children. He came to give us everlasting and abundant life.
Today, I want to join my faith with yours as you put this scripture into practice and commit your ways to the Lord that He will direct your steps down the path of success in everything you set your hand to.
We love you so much and pray that you have a happy, blessed and prosperous 2013!
