Commitment And Trust

Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him, and He will
do it.
Psalm 37:5 (NASB)
“Roll the whole burden of life upon the Lord. Leave with Jehovah not thy present fretfulness merely, but all thy cares; in fact, submit the whole tenor of thy way to Him. Cast away anxiety, resign thy will, submit thy judgment, leave all with the God of all. What a medicine is this for expelling envy! What a high attainment does this fourth precept indicate! How blessed must he be who lives every day in obedience to it!. . . Our destiny shall be joyfully accomplished if we confidently entrust all to our Lord. We may serenely sing–
‘Thy way, not mine, O Lord,
However dark it be;
O lead me by Thine own right hand,
Choose out the path for me.
Smooth let it be or rough,
It will be still the best;
Winding or straight, it matters not,
It leads me to Thy rest.
I dare not choose my lot,
I would not if I might;
But choose Thou for me, O my God,
So shall I walk aright.
Take Thou my cup, and it
With joy or sorrow fill;
As ever best to Thee may seem,
Choose Thou my good and ill.'”

Charles H. Spurgeon, The Treasury Of David, Vol. 1 (part 2), p. 171-172
