Download Shall be established

Finding God’s will and God’s way for our lives is directly connected to our commitment.

We need God to work in our minds, to shape our motivations, and establish our thoughts – for only He can be our guide.

The mechanism for accomplishing this, is foundational. Like so many other outcomes in our lives, it hinges upon our level of commitment to Him in our daily attitudes and actions.

Many have summed it up by telling us that direction determines destination.

The teaching of scripture confirms this by always recommending the same prescription: first we commit our way to the Savior by faith – then He will lead us in the way we should go.

We need a reminder, because some of us may be living with a nominal commitment and at the same time wondering why we lack guidance.

This verse gives us a simple and typical, Biblical formula that needs to be more obeyed than re-iterated.

It provides us with a framework for knowing, by telling us what is required in our willing and in our doing.

Proverbs 16:3 “Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.”
