Are you rolling through your mind field?

The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits. Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.   Proverbs 16:1-3.

proverbs-16-3

Commit, galal; Strong’s # 1556. To roll, roll down, roll away, remove. In Genesis 29:3, galal refers to rolling the stone from the well’s mouth. In Joshua 5:9, the reproach of Egypt is rolled off from Israel.

In this text, we are encouraged to roll our works into God’s care (Ps. 37:5). A word picture here would be of a camel with a heavy load stopping and kneeling down, tilting far to one side letting the load roll off.

From galal numerous words are derived, among which are galgal (“wheel” or “whirlwind”), galil (Galilee, literally, “Circuit” or “District”), gulgolet (Golgotha, “Skull” or “Head”), and megillah (“scroll”).

If one turns over to the Lord what he plans to do, his life purposes will come to fruition.

    For some reason, this scripture brought Psalm 19:14 to mind;

    “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.”

    God’s blessings my friend…
