Commit in Relationships

Commit in Relationships

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.

10 thoughts on “Commit in Relationships”

  1. Know that I’ll be there for you,
    unless, maybe, I won’t,
    and that I will see you through
    as long as more things don’t
    get in the way of my resolve
    to be your dear true friend,
    to be a blessing and a salve
    right up to the end
    of the things that I am willing
    to offer in your care
    that for me are quite fulfilling,
    so please be aware
    that if you’ve got some hard demands
    I’ll walk away, and wash my hands.

  2. Commitment sometimes feels like a rare commodity from people. But I so value when others make a commitment to me. And I want my commitments to mean something to others and to God.
