10 Commit Your Works

by | Sep 2, 2023 | Principles

I looked at the living parts of my life; principles 1-9, as a follower of the Living Lord Jesus and came to the doing part of my life. “Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.” (Prov 16:3). But, there are two types of works in consideration, one is of the hands, and the other of the spirit. Paul told Timothy to, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15), It isn’t what we do to make a living, but our outworking of spiritual responsibilities as a “royal priesthood” (1 Peter 2:9). The word commit in Proverbs is translated as trust. Read the first Principle again, Study to show yourself approved unto God- “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.” (Deu6:4-8). Trust in the spiritual works that God gives you (for me and another, it is this work), and your thoughts shall be established and worked out by your hand. I have said that there are 12 Principles, and in the other writings on this site, these thoughts have been established by God, and not by me so that they can go forth and bear much fruit. For you because I love you.
