5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him, and He will do it. 6 He will bring forth your righteousness like the dawn, your justice like the noonday sun.Psalm 37:5-6 (BSB)
The Hebrew word for commit means to roll, to turn over, or hand over. In other words, to commit to the Lord; is to roll your burdens over to the Lord; trust Him to handle them. In prayer, turn over your concerns; focus on God, and find peace.
When we commit to God, He helps us grow in righteousness, and the believer’s life is transformed, approved, and validated.
New International VersionMatt 13:43 (NIV)
Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.
Our righteousness will be revealed, and justice will shine bright like the noonday sun.
5-6 Open up before God, keep nothing back;Psalm 37: 5-6 (MSG)
he’ll do whatever needs to be done:
He’ll validate your life in the clear light of day
and stamp you with approval at high noon.
Psalm 37 is a psalm about God’s faithfulness. Have you committed to the Lord; are you being transformed and growing in righteousness?
Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we thank you for your patience, forgiveness, and grace. Teach us to trust in you, turning our burdens over to You. Like the Rudbeckia flowers, grow and glow in the sun; help us to grow in righteousness and shine brightly like the sun in Your kingdom. In Jesus’ holy and loving name. Amen
