May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us— yes, establish the work of our hands.
So often I work hard using my intellect and my abilities to set the course for my life. I recognize that these are both gifts from You but used only by my strength and my power they are weak and fall short. Today’s verse reminds me that there is beauty and blessing to be found when I allow You to set my course for me. I pray that as Your people we would submit to Your lordship and Your leading, allowing You to put in place the work – the things You have already designed us to do. Only then can the work of our hands have the lasting effect that You have intended. Amen.
