Psalm 37:5 Commit your journey to Yahveh; trust in him, and he will act,
Psalm 37:6 making your righteousness shine like the dawn, your justice like the noonday.
Psalm 37:7 Be silent before Yahveh and wait expectantly for him; do not be furious because of one who prospers in his journey, by the person who carries out evil plans.
my journey in his hands
It just so happens that the day I sat down to meditate on this text, I am faced with a major life decision that will affect where I go and what I do for the next few years. I do not take that as a coincidence. This text does not make my decisions for me, but it does give me guidance. Just reading it reminds me that there is more at stake than what I want. It is still my journey, but when I commit my journey to God, he promises to act on my behalf.
Lord, my journey is in your hands. My standard will not be the prosperity of someone else’s journey. I choose to be a light to this world, displaying righteousness and justice.
