King James Version (KJV)
3Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
What an amazingly liberating verse. No matter what your next endeavor in life might be, if you will just in absolute surrender, and faith commit that endeavor to the Lord, He will establish your thoughts. In other words, if you will commit your situation, or responsibility, or opportunity to the Lord, He will put the thoughts in your heart, and head to lead you in every step. When you commit a situation to the Lord, you might think, “what do I do next.” This verse tells me that He will from that point, because I have committed that thing to Him, establish my very thoughts about the situation, so that I can walk in faith. Amazing encouragement. Have a great day trusting Jesus.
Through each perplexing care and strife,
That marks the checkered path of life,
My Savior’s guiding hand I see,
And know that still He leadeth me.
He leadeth me, he leadeth me,
Let this my theme of rapture be!
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
My Savior’s guiding hand I see.
Though trials great before me rise,
Though clouds of sorrow veil my skies,
Unmoved the coming storm I see,
For God my Savior leadeth me.
He leadeth me, O joy divine!
The glory His, the cross be mine,
Since He who suffered on the tree
In tender mercy leadeth me.
With Him, my soul’s eternal Guide,
What can I wish or want beside?
In life or death my song shall be,
My loving Savior leadeth me.
