Commit in Relationships
Whenever we commit to someone to pursue a personal relationship, whether in friendship or in love, I believe there is a certain measure of trust extended to that person. We are willing to share a portion of our heart and we are committing to value them.
Commit in Business
When we commit to someone in a business project, we are committing to produce a certain product by a certain time, or they are committing a certain result in a certain timeline to us. Disappointment reigns when these commitments are not kept.
Commit with God
When we commit ourselves and our ways to God, we are saying we trust Him to be who He said He is and to do what He says He will do.
“Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He will do it. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday.” ~Psalms 37:5-6 NASB
“Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.” ~Proverbs 16:3
Prayer to Commit
Lord, we desire to commit our ways to You and we trust You to keep us from the evil one, to empower us to overcome our own selfish ways, to bring forth our righteousness as a light and to establish us by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Amen.
