Heart of Wisdom

April 1, 2019

LORD Your eyes saw me before I was born
In Your book all my days were ordained
Ps 139:16
So teach us to number our days{make the most of them}
That we may gain a heart of wisdom
Ps 90:12
.
ps90_12

A heart of wisdom is this:

Commit your works to the LORD,
And your plans/thoughts will be established/succeed!
Pro 16:3
He is able!
.
Jude 24-25 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
24 Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]—
25 To the one only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory (splendor), majesty, might and dominion, and power and authority, before all time and now and forever (unto all the ages of eternity). Amen (so be it).

.
Proverbs 16:3 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
3 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.

  • From NetBible Pro 16:3
    *The verb גֹּל (“to commit”) is from the root גָּלַל (“to roll”). The figure of rolling (an implied comparison or hypocatastasis), as in rolling one’s burdens on the Lord, is found also in Pss 22:8 [9]; 37:5; and 55:22. It portrays complete dependence on the Lord. This would be accomplished with a spirit of humility and by means of diligent prayer, but the plan must also have God’s approval.

Rest in Jesus

January 14, 2019

Matthew 11:28-30Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
.
Two kinds of rest

  1. Simply “Come” to Jesus
    .
    Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. 16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. –Heb 4:14-16
    .
  2. Be “yoked”/walk and learn from Jesus
    * As we walk we, also walk together with others –Gal 6:2
    * Walk and live as children of the Light –Eph 5:6-11

.

.
What “steals” rest?

  1. Fear, doubt => not trusting the Lord {Trust/rely on Him alone –Pro 3:5-7}
  2. Not dwelling/abiding feeding on the Lord’s faithfulness/truth {Abide in Jesus and His Word –Jn 15:4-7}
  3. Not delighting/surrendering all to the Lord {Surrender petitions with prayer and thanksgiving –Phil 4:4-9}
  4. Not totally committing our plans to the Lord {Don’t trust in your own strength –Zec 4:6;Ps 20:7}
  5. Not waiting patiently for the Lord {keep in step –Gal 5:25; Be still and know –Ps 46:10}
  6. Fretting because someone prospers in the world’s way {Friend of world = enemy of God –Jam 4:4}

Commit Your Way to the Lord

June 22, 2013

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.
