Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: 6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.
What does it mean to truly commit something to God?
All the cares and business of the world, and all your desires need be yielded unto Him. That is to commit. It is where we let go of control and allow Him to do what He does best. It is where we roll the whole burden of life upon the Lord.
It is very easy for me to try and control a situation. I have the tendency to be a control-freak. 🙂 In fact, as a leader it is often frustrating when things do not go my way. It is in these times, as often as they are, when I have to learn to let it go, again.
To commit is to pledge or bind (a person or an organization) to a certain course or policy. So when I commit to the Lord, I am committing to His course. I am pledging that His way is the best way and I should therefore let go of my way.
Do you see the result of letting it go, and yielding to Him? He says when we commit to Him, and trust Him then He will bring forth our righteousness and we will shine. We will stand out as light in the darkness. Why? Because we are not carrying the heavy burden it takes to keep the cares to ourselves.
It is so much better to commit to God.
How do these verses help me to expand His kingdom? As I commit my way in what I must do for His kingdom, I must not carry any burden that is meant for Him to carry. He will always do what I cannot. I must not be led by my own wisdom, but I will obey God and He will finish His work in me.
