“Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.” Psalm 37:5

I think many people may take this verse out of context and think God is a genie. That whatever we want we just work at and have God give it to us. But our desires and things we commit to must be centered in Christ. There are two key points in this verse: commitment and trust. Commitment is a word we don’t hear and use too much in our current society. Contracts, agreements, marriages are all broken everyday because we won’t commit to finishing something we started.

Trust goes with commitment. I have heard that trust is the foundation of any good relationship. Today many relationships have been broken because of lack of trust because of lies and betrayal. Daily, in the news, we hear about incidents of broken trust within marriages, the police, politicians and businesses.

Commitment and Trust are real issues in today’s world. This is why I love to look back at in the past and read the Old Testament because it gives us timeless wisdom. God is saying commit your ways to Him, trust Him and He will provide for You. Although others have let us down God will not and never has let us down.

Prayer: Lord thank You for this encouraging and inspiring verse. Thank you for letting me know that I can dedicate myself to something, work hard to achieve it, trust and rely on You and You will make it happen. Thank you for this promise. Amen.
