Ephesians 5:15-16


Competitors know how to manage challenges and power through the tough days. They understand that even when they don’t feel like doing something, they have to do it anyway. Because they know that if they don’t, they’ll just end up feeling worse later. And when they finally do get it done, they feel a sense of accomplishment that gives them clarity and momentum for the rest of the day.

Imagine feeling tired and unmotivated on a Monday morning. You have a big presentation to give that day, but don’t feel like preparing for it. You could easily decide to skip the presentation and just wing it. But you know that if they do that, they’ll probably bomb the presentation and make yourself look bad. So instead, you force yourself to get up and start preparing. And even though it’s tough at first, you eventually find your groove and end up giving a great presentation.

When we manage our lives effectively, our mental load is lighter, leading to less stress and increased productivity. Self-management is essential for our well-being and success.

Proverbs 16:3 states, “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” This verse provides valuable guidance for Christians in managing their priorities and seeking God’s guidance in their endeavors.

Let’s delve deeper into how it can be used to benefit us as Christians. By committing our work to the Lord, we recognize our dependence on Him for wisdom, direction, and success. It encourages us to seek God’s guidance through prayer, studying His Word, and cultivating a relationship with Him.

When we commit our work to the Lord, we acknowledge that our plans and outcomes are ultimately in His hands. It requires us to trust in God’s provision and timing, even when things may not go according to our immediate expectations.


1. Commit Proverbs 16:3 to memory.
