PART II: Commit Your Way to the Lord

The Inspiration Cafe Blog PART II: Commit Your Way to the Lord By Adele M. Gill _____________________________________ “Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will act.”  Psalm 37:5 Today we are talking about praying & believing that God will act on Your behalf. This Scripture passage includes 3 “little things” we all can do to improve our lives and that of others we pray for. These 3 things may sound simple, but have a tremendous impact on one’s prayer life: 1)      Commit your way to the Lord. First of all, when you commit your way to the Lord, you are handing over whatever situation is at hand. However, that’s the easy part!

Best of all, you can grow in confidence that “He’s got it” and you can stop worrying as “All things work for good for those who love God. They really do.

Sure, some days are better than others, but I am holding onto the above Scripture with all the strength I can muster. I was able to put away my wheelchair just 3 weeks into this adventure, and am between the cane and walker now for mobility! With prayer and exercise alone, my respiratory muscles are getting stronger by the week, and I am now able to drive again, do a full grocery shop alone, and am even able to take yoga twice a week! The fact is, I have been taking baby steps and have fully committed my way to the Lord. I trust in Him that He is walking with me shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand, and He is acting on my behalf!
