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.
How many times have we heard the age old adage
” Don’t judge me, only God can judge me!”
Has to be without a doubt one of the most misused, misquoted and misunderstood scriptures today, though we have a plethora to choose from!
Judging Rightly-The Rest of the Story…
Get to the meat of the matter in this much debated topic within the Church of Judging!
- Did Yeshua (Jesus) really teach us not to Judge?
- Whom, What, Where and Why?
- Confusion or Order?

How many countless times have we heard and even quoted this saying? To many to count I am sure, I don’t know who coined this phrase for Christians, but boy is it a doozie!
“Christians declare they are better than Yeshua?”
There are so many of these little things we say and confess out of our mouths that we honestly believe, and they just leave a very bad stench in the air around us.
It’s like walking behind someone who forgot to put their deodorant on before they left home, not very pleasant at all!
We begin to quote and believe stuff like this and it just shows how gullible we really are even after all the days and countless hours we spend in Church.
There is no person alive who can claim to be so blessed they have no stress! Fear is a form of stress, and every human feels fear at one point or another in their lives, so this is a ridiculous statement at best!
If a person is too blessed to be stressed, then they are better than all the people in the Bible and on the earth, including Yeshua ( Jesus)!
It’s only going to take one of many accounts in the Bible to prove it. We find the story in several accounts, but in Luke’s account we get the picture of what is happening from a Physicians point of view & knowledge.
We see Yeshua (Jesus) in turmoil, and in agony anticipating what He must soon endure. He is so stressed in fact that He literally sweats like drops of blood! It takes Luke a Doctor to recognize this phenomena as recorded in this gospel.
There is a medical phenomena called “Hematohidrosis” in which sweat can contain blood.
42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me; still, let not my will but yours be done.” 43 There appeared to him an angel from heaven giving him strength, 44 and in great anguish he prayed more intensely, so that his sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground.” CJB
Just from this one account we can clearly see that even Yeshua as earthly flesh endured suffering, sorrow, pain and stress. Yet, He was endued with power from on high, filled with the Spirit of the living God, He was and Is the only begotten Son of God made flesh and a sacrifice for all mankind!
If He can be stressed in such a way, then it only stands to reason that we can be also as human flesh. Hebrews 5:7-9
“During Jesus earthly life he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the One who could save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence. Although He was a Son He learned obedience from what He suffered, and having been made perfect He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him…” BSB
To say that we are too blessed to be stressed is literally like stating that we are greater than all the saints, all mankind and even Yeshua the Messiah all rolled into one!
Yeshua told us that in this world we would have trouble, but not to fear for He has overcome the world. John 16:33
“No one has ever been too Blessed not to be Stressed!
