Commit and Trust!

 5Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
 6And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. 

 Commit and Trust

Commit! Now that is a huge expectation, is it not? In a time when marriages, even among Christians, are failing at an astronomical rate, it has become more and more common for couples to just live together. Why is that? I think most are afraid of the "C" word: commit. The whole idea of committing oneself to just one other person for life is, indeed, frightening.

Could it be that the real problem in Christian marriages is the lack of committing oneself first, and foremost, to God? Living in the 21st century is like living in a candy store; all sorts of delectables are available. However, one cannot live on just candy! David states, with great assurance, Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. That is some pretty impressive advice coming from a man who was king.

Notice, that along with a commitment to the Lord, comes trusting in the Lord--not just a blind trust, but rather a trust with the assurance that He will take care of us. He will bring forth our righteousness as the light, and His judgment as the noonday. 

We serve a God who is able to do everything He has promised; He laughs at the foolishness of men who believe they can thwart His plans. God created this world, set it spinning in space, and, though man brought sin into this creation, still has a plan set in motion that will bring all wickedness to an end. The righteousness of Christ, applied to His children, gives them hope for an eternity where all wrongs will be made right.
This is the God we serve; this is the God in whom we can commit and trust in both now and forever more!

God Bless You,
Linda
