Proverb for the Day 16:3 — Today & Tomorrow!

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.

What a great promise! If I do what this verse says, my plans are guaranteed to succeed. But just what exactly does it mean to “commit to the LORD whatever you do?”

“Whatever I do” would involve all my daily activities. The promise is – if I commit what I do daily to the LORD – then He will direct my future and my “plans will succeed.” Sounds pretty simple and straightforward, but there is a catch!

If I really commit what I do to the LORD daily, His commitment is to redirect me and my plans for tomorrow. If I can get comfortable with committing to the LORD what I do today, He guarantees successful results tomorrow.

This particular theme is restated again and again in this chapter (see 4; 9; 20; 33). God has the authority to make this kind of promise – and He has the power to back it up!
