May 23 Today’s thought — He Worketh

Buster likes his picture taken as much as I do.

Good Morning

Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. Psalm 37:3-5

The translation that we find in Young of “Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass,” reads: “Roll upon Jehovah thy way; trust upon him: and he worketh.”
It calls our attention to the immediate action of God when we truly commit or roll out our hands into His, the burden of whatever kind it may be; a way of sorrow, of difficulty, of physical need, or of anxiety for the conversion of some dear one.
“He worketh.”
When? Now.
We are so in danger of postponing our expectation of His acceptance of the trust,and His undertaking to accomplish what we ask Him to do, instead of saying as we commit, “He worketh.”
“He worketh” even now; and praise Him that it is do.
The very expectancy enables the Holy Spirit to do the very thing we have rolled upon Him.
It is out of our reach.
We are not trying to do it any more..
“He worketh.”
Let us take the comfort out of it and not put our hands on it again.
OH, what a relief it brings!
He is really working on the difficulty.
But someone may say, “I see not results.”
Never mind.
“He worketh.”
if you have rolled it over and are looking to Jesus to do it.
Faith may be tested, but “He worketh;” the Word is sure! –V.H.F.

Trust God for your day. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
