‘Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established…’ (Proverbs 16:3)
Through the Holy Spirit the Lord is with us every day – no matter where we are, no matter what we are doing. But all too often we seem to ignore this and fail to seek the Spirit’s guidance before we set upon a course of action – and then wonder why things never seem to go to plan. What we should be doing is following the advice of this proverb. Does that mean things will always go smoothly without any hiccups whatsoever – very unlikely! However, if we commit everything to God beforehand and listen to His Spirit’s guidance, then even although we many encounter difficulties along the way, the Lord will help us every step of the way until that task is complete.
