Have you ever embarked on an idea and wished later that you didn't? Sometimes such ventures can be very costly and even deadly. The best way to avoid regrets is to submit all ideas to God. This article gives you vital reasons to surrender all ideas to God.
Proverbs 14:12 (KJV) says, "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." God, the Alpha and the Omega, Knows the end from the beginning. When you submit your ideas to God you avoid any unforeseen issues on the way.
Reasons to submit ideas to God
1. Divine direction
A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps - Proverbs 16:9 (KJV). You enjoy divine guidance when you submit your plans to God. God will order your footsteps aright and help you not to go on a wasteful or disastrous journey.
And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye anything? And they said, Nothing - Luke 22:35. When your ideas are in agreement with God's plan for you, He supplies all that is needed for the ideas to succeed.
3. Divine backup
Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass - Psalm 37:5 (KJV). When King David submitted his battle plans to God, God not only gave him directions but also helped him, (1 Samuel 23:4). Any idea submitted to God enjoys God's backing.
And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel - 1 Kings 18:46 (KJV). When you submit ideas to God, you will enjoy speed and favour from God. What others will finish in years you will accomplish in a shorter period.
And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all. And David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away: and David rescued his two wives - 1 Samuel 30:8, 18 (KJV). God will always ensure that your ideas submitted to Him succeed.
In conclusion, it is one thing to make great plans; it is another thing to have them executed successfully. Submitting ideas to God through prayers in faith and with patience keeps you ahead of others.
