Commit Your Way to the Lord

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.” (Psalm 37:5+6/NIV).

Again I am dealing with the words: Love “believeth all things”. (1 Corinthians 13:7b/KJV). The Greek word translated “believeth” can mean “to have faith”. It also can take the meaning “to entrust”. We are called to entrust our lives to Jesus Christ.

The word also could be translated “to commit”. In the above quote from Psalm 37 we are invited to commit our ways to God.

Commit Your Life to the Lord

In the following I am sharing the words of a song to be prayed. Those words were written by Frances Ridley Havergal (1837-1839). You are invited to read and to pray the following words:

“Take my life, and let it be consecrated Lord to Thee; take my moments and my days; let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my hands, and let them move at the impulse of Thy love; take my feet, and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee.
Take my voice, and let me sing always, only, for my King; take my lips and let them be filled with messages from Thee.
Take my silver and my gold, not a mite would I withhold; take my intellect, and use every power as Thou shalt choose.
Take my will, and make it Thine; it shall be no longer mine; take my heart, it is Thine own; it shall be Thy royal throne.
Take my love; my Lord I pour at Thy feet its treasure store: take myself and I will be ever, only, all for Thee.” Amen.
