Amen to Yea

Commit thy way unto the Lord” (Ps. xxxvii. 5).
      
      Seldom have we heard a better definition of faith than was given once in one of our meetings by a dear old colored woman, as she answered the question of a young man how to take the Lord for needed help.
      
      In her characteristic way, pointing her finger toward him, she said with great emphasis: “You’ve just got to believe that He’s done it, and it’s done.” The great danger with most of us is, that after we ask Him to do it, we do not believe that it’s done, but we keep on helping Him, and getting others to help Him; superintending God and waiting to see how He is going to do it.
      
      Faith adds its amen to God’s yea, and then takes its hands off, and leaves God to finish His work. Its language is, “Commit thy way unto the Lord, trust also in Him; and He worketh.”
      
      Lord, I give up the struggle,
          To Thee commit my way,
      I trust Thy word forever,
          And settle it all to-day.
