Commit Your Way to the Lord

Psalm 37:5 AMP … Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.

Proverbs 16:3 AMP … Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.

Commit your way to the Lord

Commit everything you do to the LORD -Ps37:5 NLT
Commit your future to the LORD -Ps37:5 NET
Commit your works -Pr16:3 NASB

Commit your actions to the LORD -Ps16:3 NLT

From Commentary Ps 37:5The meaning of “Commit your way to the Lord” is, “Cast thyself and thy life unreservedly upon God – yield thyself wholly to Him – look to Him for support and guidance.”

Roll the whole burden of life upon the Lord. “Roll” emphasizes letting go and entrusting the Lord. Commit THEN trust!

Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident)  in Him

From Commentary Ps 37:5Our destiny shall be joyfully accomplished if we confidently commit/entrust all to our Lord.

Trust in Him – literally “on Him” and He will do what you can not.

Your thoughts will become agreeable to His will

He will bring it to pass; Your plans will succeed.

From Commentary Pro 16:3As a child opens its heart to a tender parent, so do thou show to God thy desires and intentions, trusting to His care and providence. And thy thoughts shall be established. The plans and deliberations out of which the “works” sprang shall meet with a happy fulfilment, because they are undertaken according to the will of God, and directed to the end by His guidance

Commit your way, your all to the  Lord and wait for His strength and guidance. Sometimes He may take us on a different path than expected to accomplish His will.

Lord Jesus help me to come to You as Your trusting child and commit whatever I do, to You each day. Let me wait for and follow Your direction. Thank You that as I do my part, You will do what I can not and Your plans will succeed!

Proverbs 3:5-6 … Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
