The sure recipe for success


People aspire very hard to be successful in the things that they set their minds to and some even go so far as to measuring one’s worth by what the world would deem as successful (such as cars, home, a big bank balance), which is unfortunately a facade, since these things are all ephemeral. If you want to be successful in all of your plans, the sure recipe for success can be found in no other place, but in the Bible. Proverbs 16:3 states “Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed” (NLT). The sure recipe for success is in committing our work to the Lord.

Points to ponder:
Have you committed your work/life/all to the Lord? All your plans would succeed, when you do so. It is time for the Lord to work (Psalm 119:126a).
Our job is to commit our actions (work) to God and God’s action (work) is to complete it, as his word promises. We commit, God completes. This is the sure recipe for success.

Proverbs 16:3 (KJV)
Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. 

Psalm 119:126a (KJV)
126 It is time for thee, LORD, to work:

  1. Good timing of this post for me. I needed a reminder of this. Its one of my favorite verses. Thank you! God Bless 🙂

  2. You are very welcome, sister. This served as a reminder for me as well. It is hard to let go and let God many a times and I am learning that it should always be “let God” do the work, by committing all my actions to Him, for in Christ Jesus, there is no failure.
