Lord, help me keep You foremost in my decision-making.
My husband and I built our dream house. More accurately, an architect translated our ideas into blueprints and a team of skilled laborers constructed it.
These men possessed skill and knowledge we lacked. Employing them resulted in a lovely home that satisfied building codes. Imagine the fiasco if we’d attempted the project without seeking the experts.
Sounds a lot like life, doesn’t it? Sometimes we develop our own ideas about personal dreams and plans. God’s word instructs us to commit those ideas to the Lord, to ask Him to oversee them with His expertise. “Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this…” (Psalm 37:5). Another version says, “Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and he will help you” (NLT).
We can create a fiasco if we plunge headlong into our plans without first consulting the Expert and giving Him the freedom to do with them whatever He knows is best. Let’s save ourselves trouble by inviting His involvement from the get-go.
What dreams are in your heart? Commit them to God today.
