Whatever You Do

“All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the Lord. 
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” 
Proverbs 16:2-3

Maybe it's out of duty. Maybe it's out of pride. Maybe it's out of selfishness. Maybe it's out of love.  Whatever we do and with whatever motive we may think we are doing it out of, God knows the truth.  Our motives are weighed by Him.  

In our busy and hectic lives, it's easy for us to get into the mindset that what we are doing is right. We can justify our behavior, our attitudes, even our 'busyness', but God knows the real reasons of why we are doing what we are doing.

The key to the passage above is committing our lives to the Lord.  Instead of us doing OUR WILL, we allow God to establish our plans and we do HIS WILL.  

It's not easy!  In fact, it's really hard to give up what "I" want to do what HE wants.  It's a constant battle of self vs. God.  I want Him to win the battle, don't you?

Today is a new day.  Today commit to the Lord in whatever you do and He will establish your plans.  And then wake up tomorrow and repeat it again....and again....and again.

Hi Lori! That verse is posted on my cork board at my desk. And yes it is really hard to surrender everything to Him and let Him do what He wills for your life but there is no other way but to trust and obey! So far I know that He hasn't failed me yet. I think what the world needs is testimonies from people who have surrendered and got the best of their lives even though it wasn't how they planned it out.

Keep on posting inspirational messages like this one! <3
