Commit Your Works to the LORD

Proverbs 16:2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight, But the LORD weighs the motives. Commit your works to the LORD And your plans will be established. 4 The LORD has made everything for its own purpose, Even the wicked for the day of evil.

With use of the Hebrew language, let us break down verse 3. Commit is galal (gaw-lal') in Hebrew. It is a primitive root, meaning it is not developed or derived from anything else. It means to roll (literally or figuratively), to commit, roll (away, down, together), run down, trust, or wallow.
When you commit there needs to be a level of trust. When you commit you are secure with your decision. Your mind and soul say YES. When it comes to commitment, there is a ​willingness, it is something that you ​believe in. For example, players must make a commitment to ​play for a ​full ​season. A judge commits to uphold the law, because they believe in the justice system.

Verse 3 can be read "TRUST ... whatever actions are being offered to the self-Existing God and YOUR intentions WILL be established.  Look at the word actions (intentions). For most of us, we do not qualify for something unless we are "in the situation". For example, you do not qualify for a promotion unless they see you are doing the work already. There has to be evidence. God says your plans will be established. In Hebrew, plans can be translated as something that you ​intend to do; a goal, an ​aim, a desire. God, the Creator said he will establish your intentions. He will make an ​arrangement if you will simply commit whatever is it you desire to do to Him. The glory of our actions should always be God's. It is not about us.  It is all about Him.  

Rely on God as your source. He will honor your trust and arrange success in your purposes.
