Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
– Proverbs 16:3
The word for commit means to roll on and indicates total reliance. The word for works simply means things done. The first part of the proverb teaches a full submission to God’s will in all our thoughts and doings. This is to walk in wisdom and results in our thoughts being established, or stood upright. Trusting God in this way relieves burden and prospers us in his way (Proverbs 19:21).
