Covenant with God to do the works of His will and your thoughts of how to glorify Him through your works shall come to pass.

When do we commit our ways is the angle I desire us to check out this portion of God ' 's Wisdom from. Pray and sit down and think. Come out with what you desire to do then before the implementation, HONESTLY SUBMIT it to God in prayer. Implement and see His hand at work ONLY when you receive the go ahead.

The Oxford dictionary has one definition of commit as "1. to hand over, as for safekeeping charge entrust: to commit a child to the care of its aunt. " That definition sounds more like what our Lord wants - us to hand over our plans or work for safekeeping - and to entrust Him for the outcome. It 's more Fatherly. When I saw this definition, I wanted to commit my plans to Him because I know they are in good hands. I now like the word instead of rebelling against it - I felt it was more like restricting freedom before.

Does this mean if I put my thoughts on paper they aren 't established?

Doing good According to God 's will, working heartily at pleasing God and not man, being fully engaged in the principles of God and he will instruct you and give you wisdom and success.

If I commit my works that is the things I do unto the Lord for His glory and not my own purposes then my thoughts, the things my mind dwells on, will be established.I won 't be constantly plagued by wicked thoughts from my past.

I'm not much of a planner, so I just tend to go with the flow, although my wife loves to plan ahead in a systematic way. God has given my family BIG dreams, and I'm assured according to Proverbs 16:3 that all that we have planned shall be established because we've submitted every dream to the will of God. What a great promise! Amen!

Proverbs 16:3- Brings out the fact that God is the overall authority.He is the final control in everything so by commiting to Him, is more like trusting Him or acknowledging Him as the final authority . And like the Good Book says when we trust Him we are radiant- we are sure our plans will suceed- we shall not be put to shame.
