Commit Your Way to the Lord

Commit Your Way to the Lord

By Laura McDonald


Many years ago I was working at an entry level position in an insurance company. One day my boss came to me and asked me if I would be interested in another position. It was a promotion and offered more money. I was so excited and told her I would love to take the job. She told me to keep it quiet for awhile and so I did. A few weeks went by and no one mentioned it again. Then I found out that the company put in ad in the paper for that position. I was really confused. Instead of approaching my manager I found a scripture in the Bible that I stood on.

Psalm 37: 5 & 6, “Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.

I told the Lord that it was not fair that they offered me the job and then advertised it in the paper. I told Him that He would have to bring forth my righteousness as the Light and my justice as the noonday. I stood on that word and it manifested. Not much later I was offered another job promotion and that time I actually got it. Eventually I even got another promotion and they wanted to send my to underwriting school.
