Commit It To The Lord
Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. – Proverbs 16:3
When you are anxious and worried about something, such as paying the bills, working your business, dealing with a sickness or a wayward child, this Scripture tells you that you are to commit those works to the Lord.
By works, this Scripture is referring to anything you labor at.
You are to commit those works to the Lord. He wants you to roll your works, your cares, over on Him.
Then He promises to do something in return. He promises to establish your thoughts. He will cause your thoughts to be firm, be stable, to resemble His own.
Many times instead people take their burdens and think that they have to work everything out for themselves, but this is not true.
God wants you to roll over on Him what you labor at and let Him establish your thoughts.
God’s thoughts will become your thoughts, and you will see the problem in a whole new light. You will suddenly see a solution where you saw none before.
It is only when you submit your concerns, your labors, your works, to the Lord that you will get the mind of Christ on the matter. It is only then that you will find God’s solution.
He can see down the road. He knows how your solutions will turn out. He knows better solutions than you do…and if you don’t commit the problem to God, you will never receive His plan on how to turn it around.
You will never tap into God’s solution if you continue to work it over in your mind day after day, night after night, losing sleep and your health over it.
Instead commit your works to the Lord and your thoughts will be established.
