What are we to commit – to trust – to God?
Ourselves. Psalm 22:8
“He trusts in the Lord; let the Lord rescue him. Let him deliver him side he delights in him.”
Our Burden. Psalm 55:22
“Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.”
Our Souls. I Peter 4:19
“So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.”
Our Way. Psalm 37:5
“Commit your way to the lord; trust in him.”
Our Cause. I Peter 2:23
“When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.”
Our Works. Proverbs 16:3
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this. He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.
