I want to bring you this short but powerful word called commit.
I spoke a little last week on committing our day unto the Lord, but today I just want to expound a little on the word commit.
When we think of the word commit we usually think of a binding or obligation, as in a duty or just one more thing we have to do in our long list of to do’s!
But what does it mean to commit our ways unto God? Are we obligated to commit to God? No, he gave us a free will, is it beneficial for us to do so? Absolutely and we are about to find out why, you will be pleasantly surprised!
Why should we commit our ways unto God? Because remember that He first trusted us by committing to us His Son.
Yeshua sacrificed His life on our behalf so that we could be reconciled to the Father.
Did you know that in the original wording in the Hebrew the actual implication of this word commit is roll away, to heap upon or hurl as in throwing away.
Remember that we are instructed to cast our cares upon the Lord because He cares for us.
Also we are told to commit our works (or acts) unto Him and our thoughts will be established. Prov. 16:3
Remember this Ps. 22:8 that Yeshua committed His entire life into the hands of the Father on our behalf, as all of our sins, cares and burdens where cast, or thrust upon Him, and He bore them in His body for our sakes. So in love God rolled away the reproach of our sins upon and through Yeshua.
So as we remember to commit our days unto the Lord, let us know that we can be assured of great success, as we roll away our burdens upon the one who can actaully do something about them!
Yeshua said come to me, all you who are burdened and heavy laden and I will give you rest.
So to commit our ways, thoughts and days into His hands, we can absolutely know that as we hurl, throw and roll away our troubles onto Him that our thoughts will be established and we can walk out the day in confidence that God himself is in control!
In 1 Peter 5:7 we are instructed to cast ( literally hurl with force) our cares or anxieties upon him for he cares for us!
There is so much freedom in the word Commit, now that we know that its’ not just another thing we have to do, but that it’s actually a very loving, and soul freeing thing that God through His Son Yeshua did for us along time ago!
My prayer is that this word commit has brought you freedom in place of bondage as we have planted the seed of life, may it spring forth and produce much fruit for you as we commit, or roll away all of our cares, and ways unto the Lord.
