This word “commit” literally means, “to roll toward.” That sets up a great image as Solomon instructs us to roll our works, our plans, and our intentions to the Lord. I get this picture of someone pushing a heavy, bulky cylinder of some kind toward its destination and the more you roll, the bigger it gets.
What I love about this Proverb is the precious promise that if we are willing to bring everything before the Lord BEFORE we do it and wait for His approval, we won’t have to second guess moving forward. We can have the assurance that God will see us through and establish our work.
On a roll toward Him,
Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
