Lasting Success

Allow God to lead you into lasting success. Pro 16:1-3.

Pro 16:1-3 The preparations of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs the spirits. Commit your works to the Lord and your thoughts will be established.

There is a limit to how much planning you can do. Everyone can identify with this. Recall when you tried planning for an event or for an upcoming situation. Did you try to make a list of all the different outcomes or situations? Were you able to identify every single scenario? If you have never done this, you can try this scenario now. You will find out that there is a limit to your reasoning ability. This is because you cannot possibly know everything.

Even when you bring together a large group of people for this exercise the group is still limited in its ability to know everything. In fact there is a critical number of people. Beyond this number, the effectiveness of the group begins to diminish rapidly. God is the only person who can be everywhere at the same time. He is the only person who knows everything. This is why He is the only person who can identify all the relevant scenarios for any given situation.

The NLT translation of Pro 16:1 states: We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer. If you are seeking the right answer or the right outcome you must learn to commit your plans, tasks and projects into the hands of God. You must allow God to lead you into the right solutions.

Today make a decision to turn over everything that you are responsible and accountable for into the hands of God and watch Him turn everything that you do into a success. ...another excerpt from my latest book.
