Daily Devotional – 6/24/15 “Commit – God is waiting!”

I shared with you on yesterday the verse, Proverbs 16:3 that say, “Commit your actions to the Lord and your plans will succeed.” Now, I also told you that in order for you to commit your actions to the Lord, you have to first commit yourself to the Lord. You can’t honestly commit your actions to Him and expect everything you do to succeed if you have yet to commit your life to Him, can you? You’re only committing half way when you have to go all in! That’s like telling your personal trainer you’re committed to making a lifestyle change but every time you leave the gym you’re eating a double cheeseburger meal with large fries and the large drink from Five Guys – it won’t work. See, what I didn’t share with you on yesterday was Proverbs 16:4 that say, “The LORD has made everything for his own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster.” Baby, God has everything designed for His purpose. Oh, you thought the enemy was self-made? Go back and read the ending of that verse – King James Version says, even the wicked for a day of evil. Oh, you thought that illness you’re suffering with was due to you, baby that’s simply God being manifested through you. Yea, I know it doesn’t feel good at the moment but this is just your sowing season and soon your reaping shall begin. What do I mean? Well, you have to sow sickness to reap your healing, disappointment to sometimes reap to your happiness and stress to appreciate the sacrifice! Chile, keeping sowing for soon you shall reap a reward that will be worth the payoff!

Yea; you may be going through chemo, radiation, dialysis, surgery, constant pain, high blood pressure, drug addiction, alcoholism, dealing with migraines, sinuses, asthma, cancer, heart disease, losing your eyesight, being cheated on, hurt by someone you gave your heart to, pushed by folk who look saved, talked about by folk who quote scriptures with the same mouth, used by folk who proclaim the gospel, let down by folk who are supposed to love you, judged by family, hurt in the church, tired of struggling in your finances, worn out from putting on a brave face, over being turned down for job after job but ma’am, sir … “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans; Proverbs 16:3!” You cannot do it on your own, stop trying. Quit with the proud act. Stop trying to do it on your own- how’s that working for you? You need to commit yourself and your actions to God and GET YOUR LIFE TOGETHER! God will do His will, will you do yours?
