 Thought  For Today March 3
 Committed !


   "Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established. The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished." Proverbs 16: 3-5.

    According to the dictionary, the word establish means: to make secure, or permanent, to fix firmly in a particular place, or condition, to clear from doubt, demonstrate convincingly, prove.  So, if we commit our works unto the Lord and commit ourselves unto the Lord, then our thoughts will be securely and permanently fixed firmly in him. There will be no doubt as to who we are, where we came from, or where we are going. If our thoughts are established, or fixed in him, then the things that we do will be right and pleasing to him, because the action of our bodies are motivated and controlled by the thoughts that are deep seated, and fixed down deep in our sub conscious mind, which is the heart. It is this control center of our lives - the heart- which must be right with God and cleansed and regenerated. When we make a commitment, we make a choice. God gave every person the freewill to choose. If we choose to believe God, and go God's way, and if we choose to turn our back on everything that is ungodly, then we have committed our ways unto the Lord, and then the promise follows, that our thought, or the controlling elements of our being will be established.
    "The Lord hath made all things for himself, yea, even the wicked for the day of evil." whether they know it or not, all men were made and designed to be the instruments of God. This is the purpose of the existence of all things, even things that seem to be bad and wicked. these things were made to be used by God.
    God gives everyone the right to choose whether or not he will be yielded as an instrument of God. What most people don't know is, that they were designed and created in such a way that they can only know true joy, happiness, and peace of mind, when they choose to commit their ways unto the Lord as instruments in his hands for his use. Therefore, they pursue happiness, joy, and peace of mind in the world, and never find it.
    The proud in heart who choose not to commit their ways unto the Lord, those who say we will do our own thing, and he will not have any authority over us, will receive the punishment from God. Their lives will be shallow and drab and without purpose and goals, they will spend their lives going from one thing to another in pursuit of happiness, and never find it. Apart from God they will be frustrated and lost forever.
When our thoughts are established in God, then: " by mercy and truth iniquity is purged : and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil." "When a man's ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to beat peace with him." Proverbs 16: 6,7.
