Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. — PSALM 37:5
A marginal note in the King James Version reads, “Roll thy way upon the Lord.” Cast. Commit. Roll. Just roll your cares, your burdens, your anxieties, your worries, upon God. Isn’t that what the Word tells us to do?
But God won’t take your cares away from you. Some people have asked me, “Please pray that the Lord will lighten this load I’m carrying.” God won’t do that. God tells you what to do about your burdens. And if you don’t do something about them, nothing will be done.
“You” is the understood subject of today’s text: You commit your way unto the Lord. You roll your way upon the Lord. You cast all your care upon Him.
Some people don’t get an answer to their prayers because they’re not praying in line with God’s Word. They’re not doing what God said to do about cares, anxieties, worries, and so forth. But it won’t do any good to pray about your cares unless you do what God tells you to do about them.
You can do what God says to do!
Confession: I commit my way unto the Lord. I roll my way upon the Lord. I trust in Him. And He shall bring it to pass!
