Commit Your Life to the Lord
(Pr16:3; Jn6:5-15)

God is the Lord who manages (Is14:27).
He supervises over all things and
What He manages He makes successful (Is14:24).

Faith is trusting Him and
The life of this faith is committing to Him all of one’s things, his soul, his body, his family, his livelihood.

Depending on to whom one commits one could succeed or fail.
Whether it is managing the finance of a nation or a private household,
The person to be trusted with would be under a lot of scrutiny and examination.

The Bible is God’s credit score: it directs believers to trust in His hand.
At the age of 100, with his body as good as dead
Abraham gave birth to a son (Rm4:17-20).
Jacob who crossed the Jordan with just a staff
Returned to his father’s house as a wealthy man after 20 years (Ge32:10).
Joseph was sold as a slave at the age of 17 but later
Became a second-in-command and led Egypt to become the most powerful nation (Ge39:1-41:57).
The Israelites who had been slaves for 400 years in Egypt
Left with all the treasures of Egypt (Ex12:35-36) and
For 40 years they had their table spread out for them in the wilderness with
The abundant supply of manna from heaven and even quails (Ps78:19-28).

Furthermore, even the prophets who were called the men of God,
When entrusted with others’ last meals
Provided them abundantly until the end of the famine (1KI17:14-16; 2Ki4:1-7).

Referring to the sanctuary where the vase with manna which reminded them this,
Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19), because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would become the managing Lord to those who commit to Him.
He showed signs: He turned water into wine at the wedding banquet in Cana (Jn2:1-10); and
Fed 5000 in the wilderness with two fish and five loaves of bread and
Still having a leftover of 12 baskets (Mt14:18-20).

Because He refused their wish to entrust Him with their kingdom (Jn6:15),
Those disappointed Jews put Him to death.
However, as He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Committed His life in the Father’s hands (Lk23:46);
2) Judged the devil who challenged the throne (Is14:12-15; 1Jn3:8); and
3) Through one man’s death made a way for many to be made righteous (Rm5:19), dying as a kernel of wheat (Jn12:24).

He resurrected and sat on the heavenly throne and
The Father entrusted Him with all things (Eph1:20-21).

The Holy Spirit whom He sent
Comes in the souls of those purchased by His blood and
Lets them know that Yeshua is the best manager and therefore
Lets them commit all things to Him.

The man of the Spirit is he who,
Without hesitance
Commits in the Lord’s hands all his possession, even all that he has to live on (Lk21:4; Ac4:36) and
Lets the Lord manage his soul, his health, his family and his livelihood.
The foolish man is he who
Attempts to manage on his own until the end (Lk12:16-21) and
Ultimately his soul becomes troubled and his flesh is destroyed (Ac5:1-11).

O Lord,
Who is my managing Lord?
Me or Yeshua?
I do not care if others call me foolish, unplanned, unprepared.
I commit my all, my soul, my health, my family, my ministry
To the greatest CEO, Jesus Christ! Amen.
