“Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.” Proverbs 16:3
The idea of committing works to God is that of rolling something over on Him. Instead of carrying the large load solely on your shoulders, commit it to God in faith. When we do this, our thoughts are established. We will have more joy, peace and confidence in God, and less debilitating worry and fear when we recognize His sovereign care of our works.
This applies to many areas of life—the work of being a follower of Christ, building a Godly home, the work in a church or an evangelistic outreach, a job, faithfully enduring a difficult season of life, and much more.
The passage gives us a Scriptural balance of things. We’re not “trusting” without working and we’re not working without trusting. We work diligently and faithfully as we roll the heavy burden upon the Lord.
