Proverbs 16:3

“Commit thy works to the Lord; and thy thoughts will be established.”

Outcomes are something that follows as a result or consequence.  Our outcomes in life are a result of what Jesus has done for us.

Jesus came to this earth to fulfill the will of his Father and although He knew the will of His Father included dying, He believed that the Father would raise Him up on the third day.   Psalms 16:10  says, “For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.” Jesus trusted His life to His Father and because of that He received what the Father promised, He was raised from the dead.  Ephesians 1:19-20, “And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of HIs mighty power, which He wrought in Christ when he raised Him from the dead and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places.”  And just as Jesus trusted His work to His Father we must trust our work to Him.

The Hebrew word for commit is roll.  When we roll our works upon Jesus, we receive His works and if we receive His works we also receive the outcome of His work which is His life. No longer do we get results based on what we do but on what He as done.  I like how the amplified bible states it, ” 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.  When we trust our works to the Lord we succeed.

However, the key is trusting God; when we trust God He causes our thoughts to line up with His will.  He directs us into the will of God for our circumstance and situations.  And as He does this  His purpose and plans our accomplished for our lives.  We receive His outcome, we receive His life.

Today, whatever work you are doing, whether it’s your job, your family, your  business, or ministry roll that work upon the Lord and receive His work and your will receive His outcome, you will receive HIs life.
