Pro 16:3 – God’s thoughts

I enjoy reading different Bible translations, as they can give me new insights into a verse I might have read many times. I recently listened to an audio Bible being read in the New King James version. When Proverbs 16:3 was read, I saw the verse in a new light. “Commit your works to the LORD, And your thoughts will be established.” (Proverbs 16:3). When we commit what we do – our works to God, he will direct our thinking. That’s amazing. God says he will change how we think and see if we let him be in charge of our works. In our hectic work, leisure, and media-consuming lives, how much time do we give to God to establish our thoughts? In Isaiah 55:8-9 God says, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” God’s thoughts and God’s way are not the same as ours. They are so much higher and more life-transforming. Today, commit your works to the LORD, and He will then direct your thoughts and your life with His divine glory and purpose. Open Bible –,
