Commit and Trust

“Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.” Psalm 37:5 NASB
To live righteously in the midst of an evil world, the believer must be totally committed to the Lord, completely relying on Him to direct his way. The word commit was used to describe rolling the bundles a person was carrying over onto the back of a camel. Thus, it is the picture of rolling all your burdens, concerns, cares, and future over onto the Lord. To commit your way, your whole life, to the Lord describes letting Him guide and direct your every step, your every thought and action.
Lord Jesus, I commit my way, my whole life, over to Your control. Guide my every step so that I will bring glory and honor to You.
