Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. – Proverbs 16:3
There is a beautiful and mysterious way in which our desires harmonize with God’s desires. At the core of this is a relationship of love.
God loves us and wants the best for us, although sometimes we cannot see what is best for ourselves. He works for our good and His glory. As our Father He loves to meet our needs and provide us with every good gift. He wants what is best for us, but also wants to give us all kinds of wonderful things and even everything that we ask for.
We want to love God in return, and we seek after ways to please Him and show our love. We start to understand that He always wants what is best for us. Having an affectionate relationship with Him causes us to be attentive to what He desires, and to act unselfishly towards Him and towards everyone else. We also grow in our faith, trusting and becoming confident that our Loving Father will listen to and answer our prayers.
This wonderful relationship allows us to hand over all we do to the Lord. We have plans or desires but we give them to Him, we ask Him to work through us and to work through whatever needs to be done. And God promises to do this! He makes it all happen!
