COMMIT YOUR WAY TO THE LORD
5 Commit your way to Yahweh. Trust also in him, and he will do this: 6 he will make your righteousness go forth as the light, and your justice as the noon day sun. (WEB)
When we commit our way to God, we practically demonstrate that we trust Him. When we do not try and control everything around us but release our lives into His hands, I believe it touches His heart like nothing else we can do. To live a trusting life this side of heaven, is to communicate to our Father that we believe that He is good as we gladly surrender the outcome of our lives into His gracious hands.
Just like any good earthly father, I believe that our Heavenly Dad responds to our childlike dependence on Him by doing more for us than we could ever hope for or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). His Father's heart is for us (Romans 8:31) and He will make His righteousness go forth on our behalf and shine brightly like the sun.
My prayer today is that we would all have the grace and trust in God to commit our way to Him. May we all take our hands off controlling our lives so that we can truly be led by the Spirit (Romans 8:14) and not try to lead ourselves. The more that we can surrender to our Father's loving care, the more that we can bless His heart by truly demonstrating that we really do trust Him.
5 Trust in Yahweh with all your heart, and don’t lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (WEB)
