Why Are You Doing That

(Prov. 16:3) says “Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.”

Why are you doing that, and what am I doing? This is a question which the Lord would have all of us who are working in ministry to ask him.  The work of the ministry can be difficult at times, and in fact it is supposed to be because we are not expected to succeed in ministry apart from the work of the Holy Spirit in us.  Thus, expect to be challenged.  However, if we desire to keep our frustrations and discouragements in check we must be willing to commit the work we are doing in ministry to the Lord.  When our work is committed to the Lord we come to understand that it’s not our work but it’s his; we come to understand that though the work may be difficult and the challenges are great it will eventually pay off for us, our families and those whom we serve.  In fact, when we commit our works to the Lord He has a way of establishing our whole thought patterns.  Those of us who are believers have been called to do a work for God in the body; we have been called to get up off the bench and get in the game and there will be times when the ball is in our hand and we will have to decide whether we are going to shoot for the winning basket or pass the ball to another player.  Most of the time we have to shoot the ball because God has called us to do the work specifically; however, there are other times where we can pass the ball to another on the team and allow them to get some action.  In other words, if you find yourself overwhelmed don’t be afraid to say I need some help, because part of committing our work to the Lord is understanding when we need to shoot (finish the work) or when we need to pass (delegate).
