Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. – Proverbs 16:3
Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, a work-at-home mom, or one that works outside the home, every mom works. We all have desires that we want to succeed, and dreams of something we would love to accomplish.
No matter what it is–even something as seemingly meaningless as getting a handle on housework, commit it to the Lord.
Lay everything you do down at His feet. Give Him all of your hopes and dreams–both big and small!
When we do this, we are opening the door so that God can fulfill His promise.
In closing, I want to make sure that I point out that our plans cannot be born from sin, or from selfish ambitions. Obviously, if we are walking with the Lord, and are in a “committed” relationship with Him, our plans and work will ultimately line up with His will for our lives. However, if we are not walking with Him, and have strayed, we may be deluded into a wrong mindset. So, make sure that your plans line up with God’s Word, and that You are always including God in every decision–both big and small!
Father God, You never cease to amaze me! Thank You for the many promises that Your Word holds for me. May my plans never veer away from Your will for my life. I pray that You only allow desires to rise up in my heart that are pleasing to You. Lord, I ask that You make my deepest dreams come true. I ask that You help me with the works of my hands, and to prosper in all that I do. I pray that everything I put my hand to will bring glory to Your Worthy Name! I love You, Daddy. Thank You for loving me! In Jesus’ MIGHTY Name, amen!
