Commit thy way unto the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not to thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge Him and shall direct thy path.
Pray without ceasing.
1 Thessalonians 5:17
So the common denominator in all these Scriptures in commiting what you are trying to do to the Lord. It is foolish to think that in our own strength that we can do anything. Even when it's a good thing that we are wanting to do...we cannot in our own strength.
This is why my week, as my daughter puts it, was an epic fail! Everthing that could go wrong has....we fell off the wagon like 2 days after doing good and we got sick.
In case you are lost, I'm referring to my last post on recommiting myself. I was sitting here thinking about the cleanse I'm about to do with my daughter and the time I plan to commit to the Lord during the time of renewal and the enemy of my soul was right there to bring me down with a whipser of, " I don't even know why you are going to try to do the cleanse and spend time with God...you couldn't even get your last commitment right." Sigh..then the Faithful Holy Spirit gently reminded me that if I want to succeed that I have to do it with the Lord by my side. I have to pray. I have to tell the Lord what my plans are and seek His advice and let Him tweak my plans however He sees fit!
I'm not a failure and I refuse to give up! I have a good plan. This time though I'm going to get with my Father and seek Him with all my heart before I proceed! With God by my side how can I ever go wrong!
I love the way this verse is written in the New Living Translation:
The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked.
I am a righteous through Jesus Christ! I am a righteous woman, wife, and Moma not by anything that I have done but through my Saviour who died willingly for me and by my Lord who so willingly gave up so much for me! Though I did fall, I'm back up!
Blessings to all! Goodnight!
