The Thought Life
Proverbs 16:3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
Commit: from the Hebrew word, galal which means literally “to roll, roll down, roll away, remove.”
Works: in Hebrew the word ma’aseh is an action (good or bad); an activity; doing, labour, thing made, occupation, thing offered, workmanship, wrought.
Thoughts: here refers to intentions, or plans.
Established: This Hebrew word, kûn (in a causative sense) is to set up, to prepare, make provision, be or make ready, or right, to be stable, establish.
I roll my work over onto the Lord, and He handles the details. He provides me with the thoughts and plans that will make me successful. Jesus makes sure my plans come to pass. He weeds out all the incorrect directions, and stabilizes my decisions.
I say, “Roll the job onto the Lord and depend upon him for details, direction and success!”
