DON’T PANIC 

“Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.” Proverbs 16:3, The Amplified Bible 

Right now you may be on the edge of a major decision…about to make a change in your job or your church or your personal life. You know you need divine guidance. And you’re hoping desperately to hear from the Lord.

If that’s your situation, don’t panic. Being led by the Lord isn’t some complicated process that only the spiritual “pros” can master.

I found that out years ago when I was a new believer. I wanted to live in a way that was pleasing to God, but I didn’t know how to make decisions that were in line with His will. panic-1393619_1920

Then one day as I was studying The Amplified Bible, I came across Proverbs 16:3. Immediately, I latched on to this verse and began to use it in my life―and I can tell you now from experience, it works!

It will work for you too if you’ll do what it says. Roll your works over on God, commit your ways to Him, trust them wholly to Him. He’ll start adjusting your thoughts to be like His until, at some point, you’ll just know the right thing to do. Of course, faith is involved. One of the requirements is trust, and you won’t be able to do that without feeding on God’s Word. Then as you practice rolling your works upon the Lord and trusting Him, you become more confident in your ability to hear. Start now with whatever problem is bothering you. Pray and trust God with it. In other words, believe you receive when you pray. Stop worrying and begin believing.

Learn to live this way and it doesn’t matter whether you’ve been a Christian 30 minutes or 30 years, your plans shall be established and succeed!
