‘Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.’
What an amazing Bible verse with a promise…from God!
It may not be on our time table (Instantly), but this is a promise from God that He shall bring it to pass. It may be months, years or immediately, no matter what it may be, Christians are to “Commit” our troubles, pain, discouragement, and suffering to the Lord and “trust” the Sovereign God for knowing what’s best for us.
In 1 Peter 5:6, the apostle Peter writes…humble yourselves (be patient, we are not to expect anything, only that a Sovereign God will take care of our needs) under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time (again, God knows what’s best for us and He will meet our need on His time).
Peter continues in the next verse, 1 Peter 5:7, and this is so practical and simple to understand and fits so perfectly with what David wrote 1000 years earlier.
‘casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.’
I Peter 5:7
The first word in verse seven, “Casting” in the Greek (ἐπιρίπτω/epirripsantes) means; to throw upon, place upon. Peter is admonishing us to throw all our troubles upon the Lord…”What an amazing comfort”…why?…..the last part of verse 7,… for He (God) cares for you.
Let that sink in. It means what it says, the Triune Godhead (God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit) cares about us, not just once in awhile, all the time.
Yes, God Cares About You All the Time
That is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.’ II Corinthians 5:19
“For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11.
“Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!” Psalm 139:16-17.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” Romans 8:28-29.
Lastly, no matter what you may be going through in your life, big or small, cast it ALL upon the Lord. Take everything to God daily, with a humble heart, be patient and God will comfort you. God is faithful.
