Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus
Commit your way to ADONAI;
Trust in Him, and He will act.
He will make your vindication shine forth like light,
The justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Have you been waiting for a long time for the answer to your prayer? Does it seem like GOD has not heard you or has forgotten about you?
Not all my prayers have been granted…yet. But I continue to pray and persevere in hope, mainly because I know Him who I have placed my faith on. Many times I don’t know the particular reason why I have to wait long, but do I really have to understand everything before I continue in faith?
David encouraged us to commit our way to ADONAI. To commit in Hebrew is ‘galal’ meaning to roll (figuratively or literally). We are to roll our daily practices & habits toward the way of ADONAI. From our thought patterns (perceptions), to our words and to the work of our hands, the godly are instructed to align all his ways to the way of YHWH. By trusting Him, we will see him act on our behalf. By trusting Him, we confess that we are weak , but in our weakness, ADONAI is strong and powerful. By trusting Him, we declare that our GOD is almighty and sovereign over all the affairs of men.
ADONAI will not allow His reputation and character in you to suffer suspicion, so He will make righteousness come to pass and people will see His greatness in you when they witness your vindication. To surrender future circumstances to ADONAI is therefore the best thing that could ever happen to any believer.
When we remember that ADONAI creates circumstances in our favor by His holy word, we become armed with His presence and surrounded with His light. We are assured that no matter what happens, all is well with our souls!
