“Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.”
Proverbs 16:3 AMPC
As I was thinking about today’s Scripture I was reminded how often I have failed to do this.
It reminds me of those times when I purchased something, you know one of those things that states on the package, some assembly required.
Well you lay all the pieces out on the floor and it looks like a giant jigsaw puzzle. And there is that proverbial bag of screws, pegs, nuts and bolts, and another gizmo's.
In my early years my first inclination was to set aside the instructions and try to put that thing together. Well that usually ended up with me being frustrated, the thing not being assembled correctly, and THEN I would go to the instructions.
I didn’t have to go through that at all!
Today’s Scripture says that we should “Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him...”
Not committing and not trusting our works to him is like me not reading those instructions. It will always end in futility!
That’s scripture goes on to say, if we have committed everything to Him, “He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.”
You and I cannot afford to not go to Him first and seek out His will and mind regarding the matter.
One thing I do know, is that if we do what the Word says we are to do, we can expect to see the results of what the Word says will happen.
