How Committed Are You?

It’s almost mid-year and many of us are still wrestling with unfulfilled goals and plans set at the beginning of the year, or even prior. Have you ever wondered why some people seem to always succeed with their plans? Could it be that they have committed their ways unto the Lord and no longer struggle through trying to make things happen on their own? Could it be that they are not slack on their commitment to God?

Commitment is a strong sense of dedication to something, someone, or to an undertaking. It’s a readiness to stand by your promises no matter what. It means loyalty and reliability, even when it’s easier to quit. The big question is: How well do you keep your commitments? If you commit to something or someone, do you honor that? Your character is linked to your ability to carry out your commitment. If you don’t honor your
commitments, your credibility will be marred and your Christian witness and testimony will be tainted.

The most important commitment in life is the commitment to God. When we commit our ways to God, He fulfills promises in all areas of our life according to His will. Psalm 37: 5 – 6 “Commit everything you do to the LORD (your dreams, your life, your work). Trust him, and He will be your helper. He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.” Committing to God invites divine assistance regardless of your challenge or circumstance. Proverb 16: 3 “Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established”. It’s a promise!
