Typically, when we think of commitment, we think of binding ourselves to a person, task, position or a thing. But in this context, commit means to roll away or to roll off onto. In other words, roll you course of life onto the Lord.
“Roll the entire course of your life onto the Lord and He will do for you what you cannot do for yourself.” – Dr. D’Ann Johnson
This idea is best illustrated by the picture of a camel carrying its burden. To discharge its burden, it stops and buckles its legs; drops down to the ground; and rolls over onto its side. Or in other words, stop-drop-roll.
“God does not take our burden so that we can become irresponsible, but so that we can serve Him better.” – Warren Wiersbe
In verse 6, we see that God will vindicate us and defend us. Commitment from the Lord does not keep us from being unjustly treated or from having our character. But when reproach is come God will protect our reputation and defend His name in us.
How do I live out my commitment?
Cast Your Burdens
Psalm 55:22 – Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.
In this text, sustain infers that God will maintain, protect, support, and defend you.
Commit Your Plans
Proverbs 16:3 – Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans [thoughts].
The idea is not the way make our plans and just have God bless our plan. No! The idea is to get the plan from God, and then He will give you the way to success.
