Psalm 37:5-6 "Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday."
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus! In today's world, commitment is a fleeting word that is considered old fashioned and outdated. The loyalty that goes along with commitment is considered over the top and I quote, "it don't take all that." David admonishes the reader to "Commit thy way," and in Proverbs 16:3, Solomon writes "Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be estab-lished." This word "way" is most often used metaphorically to refer to the path-ways of one's life, suggesting the pattern of life. The word "works" refers to various deeds or works accomplished by people. When we are committed, our ways and our works become what we have to do and cannot set forth as a burden. We trust in the Lord or literally, "on Him." He will do what we cannot do. He will not suffer our character to remain under suspicion.
