Word of Encouragement – Proverbs 16:3

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.” ~ Proverbs 16:3

Have you ever written God a list of your wants/needs? How did He provide?

Over the past three months, my family and I have been moving house. Without financial certainty or an idea of where we’d go once our lease ended, we fervently sought the Lord’s guidance and watched Him miraculously meet our every need! Each step of the journey was an act of surrender, entrusting the future to God, and embracing His will. And guess what? Even the things I believed were far-fetched were met!!

Nothing is too small or big for our God. He knows what we need and will provide them at the perfect time. However, as it says in Proverbs 19:21, the key lies in relinquishing our plans so the Lord’s purpose can prevail.

Are you tired of trying to conquer life’s obstacles with your own strength? Our human strength has its limits, but we serve a God capable of carrying our burdens and providing what we need. So, if you’re struggling to make ends meet or navigating a transition season, I encourage you to write down your requests and lay them at the Lord’s feet. The Bible promises that God will never leave or forsake us; when we ask, we shall receive. So, commit your ways to the Lord, releasing the burdens off your shoulders — which were never meant for you to bear alone — and watch the Lord establish His plans for your life! The outcome may not be what you expected, but I guarantee it’ll be better!

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” ~ Romans 8:28
