Roll Your Work

Roll your work upon the Lord

Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed. Proverbs 16:3

The scientific definition of work is Work=Force x Distance. For example: we apply force to a wheelbarrow and it moves in the direction we push it in.  My definition of work is anything that makes you sweat–metaphorically or physically. 

We are to roll our work (sometimes translated as burdens) onto the Lord.  What is a heavy weight for us is a feather to Him.  We do this knowing the incredible love he has for us.  When we do this (and don’t fear and worry make us sweat?) our thoughts become aligned with His and become firm.  The more we do it, the firmer they become.  Here’s to rolling and firming!  (Please imagine the clink of coffee cups in a toast right now.)
