What Does Proverbs 16:3 Mean?

Commit your activities to the Lord and your plans will be achieved.

Proverbs 16:3(HCSB)

Verse Thoughts

The wisdom of the world is foolishness to God but the wisdom of God is life and health to those that obey Him, and if only we could take this simple instruction to heart and carry it out to completion, we would be walking in the way of the Lord and living in spirit and truth.

Every believer is called upon to commit his works and activities unto the Lord, but all too often we discover ourselves trying to carry out the works that He has prepared for us to do, in our own strength and not in the power of the Holy Spirit. God will never carry out His plans and purposes in the strength of the old “me'. God has purposed to carry out the works and activities of my life through my new life in Christ - my new, born-again nature.

God can never carry out His work through a heart that is anxious, disobedient or fearful.. nor can he achieve His purpose in our life if we are proud or seeking our own glory for anxiety, disobedience, fear, pride and vainglory all emanate from our old sin nature. God's will only works through our new-life in Christ until Christ is all in all to the glory of God the Father. The best way to be assured that our plans will be achieved is to dedicate our ways and works to the Lord and be willing to say, Thy will be done.

My Prayer

Heavenly Father, today I commit all my works and activities to You. Please work through me, so that Your plan for my life will reach their full fruition, to Your praise and glory, AMEN
