From my Journal notes 7.28.2012; B. Keith Chadwell
Psa 37:5 6 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
We commit our way or choose God's rule, then have faith (trust) He will bring it to pass. If we are serious with God about walking in the Spirit, this is the way..."walk ye in it".
He, then, makes our righteousness and our thought processes to come forth and be manifest, morning by morning. Kind of like the daylight gradually rises each morning and progressively pushes out the darkness.
This process of developement is not "instant potatoes". However, He is able to keep that which we COMMIT TO HIM against "that day" it will be manifest. So, by faith, we are the righteousness of God, untill.... His righteousness is manifest and those around us will see it. Whatever light we are blessed to have been given in that process, let it shine, until "that day" that "Christ in us" is fully manifest and we are "like Him". ("Let your light so shine"....)
We choose & commit....Heaven rushes to our aid.....It is, then, God's work. Like planting seeds, it is a process. It takes time from planting to harvest. Faith is the substance of things hoped for.....but may not, yet, be fully manifest.
