VerseD: Psalm 37:5

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.
Psalm 37:5, ESV

Do not merely pray for God to bless your plans. Seek His will, to walk in His wisdom, and your plans will be His plans and will succeed by His standard.

VerseD: Proverbs 16:3

Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.
Proverbs 16:3, ESV

Do not read this as “Make sure God is invoked in your work so that your plans work out.”

Start your plans by seeking God’s will, work diligently and faithfully with the help of God, and find success on God’s terms, not necessarily your own.

VerseD: Psalm 127:1

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.
Psalm 127:1, ESV

In other words, entrust your plans to God, and realize He is in control. Rest in His strength and wisdom.

VerseD: Matthew 6:34

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

Trusting God – the Creator and Sustainer of all things – helps us keep things in perspective and to plan out our days.

VerseD: Proverbs 19:21

Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
Proverbs 19:21, ESV

We are never assured of tomorrow, not even the evening.

God knows what is coming. Trust God, include Him in your plans. Be flexible and willing to change.

VerseD: Proverbs 21:2

Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs the hearts.
Proverbs 21:2, NASB

We tend to think that we can do plant of good things, but often our motives are less than pure, even selfish. God knows every intention and motive of our hearts.

VerseD: Psalm 37:5

Commit your way to the Lord , Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
Psalms 37:5, NASB

This is not simply a “Lord, bless what I am doing” thing. Our desires and plans should be aligning with God’s. As our wills align, He will do it, because it is already His will.
