This morning the Holy Spirit reminded me that worry is futile. Futile means: fruitless, empty, unproductive, ineffectual, and worthless. Matthew 6:27 reminds us that worry doesn’t change a thing.
Trust bears much fruit that glorifies the Lord. Jeremiah 17:7-8 gives the results of perpetual trust as not ceasing to yield fruit. Perpetual means: uninterrupted, continuous, unending, unceasing, persistent, and unbroken. We can have unceasing trust because He is unceasingly Faithful.
Psalm 37:5 Amplified says, “Commit your way to the Lord (roll and repose each care of your load on Him) trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass. Proverbs 16:3 Amplified says, “Roll your works upon the Lord (commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and) so shall your plans be established and succeed.”
The word commit is a picture of a camel with a load. When it is ready to release the load, it kneels down, rolls over until the load drops off. What a picture for us! We kneel down in prayer, and roll each care at His feet.
