Psalms 37:5 “Commit thy ways unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”
When things go wrong for us, instead of trying to work them out on our own, we should commit them to God, knowing that “…he shall bring it to pass.”
A young pastor had done everything he knew to do but had failed. So he decided to give up his church and quit the ministry. Then God seemed to say to him, “Son, you have tried and failed. Why don’t you trust me to bless your ministry instead of trying to do everything by yourself?” The young preacher decided to continue to continue in the ministry and trust God to do what he could not do. After that he succeeded beyond his fondest dreams. It remains to be seen what God will do with our lives if we will Let God Take Charge.
