Back to School with the Proverbs

First Family,

Sunday, we began a new sermon series titled "Back to School with the Proverbs." Throughout the series, we'll explore the wisdom found in the Proverbs and how it can assist us in becoming more like our Lord Jesus Christ. What sets this series apart is that each sermon is self-contained, allowing us to receive a unique and applicable message from God's word every week.

Proverbs are a type of literature that convey general life principles, not guaranteed promises from God. Essentially, when we follow God's ways, such as the Proverbs, we can anticipate blessings in our lives and work. However, we should also be prepared to encounter obstacles. Still, we can trust that God will keep His promise from Romans 8:28, which states, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

Reflect on Proverbs 16:3: "Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established." This verse highlights our duty to serve God every day. It encourages us to surrender our tasks to Him and trust in His provision, intervention, and guidance. By relying on God, we can trust that our plans will be successful according to His desire. Therefore, we can accept whatever happens each day as God's will. I encourage you this day to “commit your work to the Lord,” trusting him for what lies ahead and going forth in confidence that we have a God who has promised to “never leave or forsake us.”

Let’s commit our work this week to the Lord by saying, “Lord, my day is yours. I have plans, but I trust you with what lies ahead. Father, let your will be done today in my life. I commit my work to you.”

Servant for His glory,
Pastor Robert
