Proverbs 16:3 (AMP), Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.
This has become one of my go-to-scriptures when I am feeling overwhelmed. It helps me to refocus so that I can see that I am getting in my own way again.
I encourage you today to be content in God’s grace upon your life. Be content in knowing that all you have to do is have faith in Him to help you overcome every challenge you will ever face. Be content in being submitted to His will and not your own. Most of all, be content in gaining victory through His perfection. He is the source of our strength. He is able to refresh us when our strength is gone.
Father, we take so much pride in doing what we know is best. We get lost in our own ability and neglect the help you have freely given. Teach us to value your grace in our everyday life. Teach us to recognize the grace you have given us to accomplish what you have called us to. I pray that every day we will commit our works to you so that you will establish our thoughts. May our eyes be open to the countless rewards that await us when we do it your way and not our own. In Jesus’ name, Amen
