Thought of the Day !!

Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed.
                                                                             Proverbs 16:3 (NLT)


Think about the things you do in ministry.  They can be done for yourself, so that others would take notice and pat you on the back.  They can be done out of guilt or because you feel like the only way to stop someone from nagging you about them is to do them.  Good things can be done for bad reasons.  

They can also be done for the right reasons.  Your works/actions/deeds/ministry can be done out of a desire to satisfy God.  They can be done out of a sense that God has done so much for you that you want to do what you can back.  They can be done because you want your Father in Heaven to be proud of you.  They can be done because you know that this is how God created you and you want to fulfill your purpose on earth and receive the rewards in Heaven.

When we commit what we do to the Lord, we will be successful.  Even if we seem to fail, when we are faithful to God's will in our lives we will succeed.  Sometimes it may not seem like we've done much.  But we are not able to see the big picture as God does.  So "Commit your [ministry] to the LORD, and your plans will succeed."

In the love of Christ,
greg
