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 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.

VerseD: Proverbs 16:3

Commit your works to the Lord And your plans will be established.
Proverbs 16:3, NASB

God is not a magic genie that will grant our wishes.

Rather, we should be so desirous of the Lord that our plans are essentially His. How can we fail of our will is matched to His?
