The worldwide earthquake obliterated hope. How will the Saved survive?

Roll

Commit your works to the LORD And your plans will be established. – Proverbs 16:3 

The original word we translate as commit is galal. Gala means:

to roll, roll away, roll down, roll together, (Qal) to roll, (Niphal) to roll up, to flow down, (Pilpel) to roll, (Poal) to be rolled, (Hithpoel) to roll oneself, (Hithpalpel) to roll oneself, (Hiphil) to roll away – BLB Lexicon

An image that comes to mind when I read “roll” is that of a giant stone. Like a millstone. It easily stands 8 foot tall, too tall for me to see over and can barely see around

I personalize the Scripture in this way:

“Roll my millstone, my burdens, my hopes and dreams upon the Lord, and my plans will be established.”

Working for God feels like a millstone. The books I write feel like that. A burden He’s put on my heart. And, if day by day, I roll them upon Him, He will give me what I need to accomplish the task he has laid upon my heart.

When you get time, I’d encourage you to read the book of Nehemiah, study it, and expect God to reveal is plan for you and put it on your heart.
