Have you ever given everything you have to #accomplish something? Maybe you've planned and worked hard for something important. Maybe it was a new job, a new home, a family. Maybe you got what you set out for and maybe you didn't. Sometimes, we may achieve our #goal
and sometimes we don't. It's never a #guarantee.
It's different with #God,
however, for He #promises
that He will be #faithful
to His word IF we #commit
ourselves to Him. If we put our full faith and trust in God, He will #bless
our ways. If we make God #1
in our lives, He will throw open the floodgates of #heaven
and pour out so much #blessing
that there will not be room enough to store it (Malachi 3:10). If we stick with God, He will stick to us and never leave our side.
This doesn't mean that we will get whatever we want, but it does mean that God will give us the #desires
of our #heart
if these desires are aligned with God. It's not what we want that will give us #peace
but it's what God wants for us because God knows exactly what we need and when we need it. He won't give us something if it would #lead
us away from Him. He won't give us something if He thinks it will harm us. Just like good parents watch over and give good gifts to their children, so much more will God give and #protect
Sometimes we may commit ourselves to things that we think are right, but it may not always be the #right
path. If we choose to commit ourselves to God, we will never go wrong. If we allow God to lead us, we will always take the right path. If we #listen and #obey
God, life will go well for us.
It's up to us what path we take and who we commit ourselves to. Sure, you might accomplish what you set out for on your own. However, in the end, it will mean nothing without God. If you decide to include God, it's a guarantee that not only will you accomplish what God has set out for you, but it will always end in the best way possible.
