Children of God ~ Commit your actions to the Lord

"We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer. People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives. Commit your actions to the Lord and your plans will succeed". Proverbs 16: 1-3

In John, we can read "If you love me [Jesus], obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn't looking for him and doesn't recognize him. But, you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you."

We need to remind ourselves that .... "He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet, to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God... children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God ~ Born again.

Children of God, commit your actions to the Lord... rest in His Presence!

*Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word. Psalm 119: 37
