COMMIT

Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. (Proverbs 16:3 KJV)

Precepts and Counsel

Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. (Psalms 37:5 KJV)

Trust is a transformer

One of the hard facts of life is the responsibility of commitment. Either one is committed or they’re not. It’s hard to be halfhearted about a commitment and be successful in a particular responsibility. One can only skate through life in the neutral zone for so long then they either have to whole heartedly commit or quit. If one understands the purpose for which they’re created and then commit to it with whole heart and trust in the Lord they will see the success in that endeavor.

The bible teaches us that it is better to not even make a vow than to make a vow and not keep it. In Psalms 37 the inscription to delight ourselves in the Lord is not only good counsel but a great precept to living a transforming lifestyle. Hence: Delight and Trust walk hand in hand when it comes to commitment.

We understand that the works we commit to the Lord earn us the wages of established thoughts. When our delight, trust, and commitment is in the Lord our wages are the love of God, the power of God, and a sound mind established by God. Our desire will control our thoughts, and aims, and actions in proportion to the intensity of our delight is the strength of our desire. When our desire is God’s will, God’s ways, through God’s word he will bring our desires to fruition.

Nothing which is worth having is ever gotten without commitment. So Brethren let us press toward the prize of the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus. Let us delight ourselves in the Holy Ghost, peace, and righteousness of God. Commit to the principles, precepts, and protocols of the Lord and watch him bring his purposes to pass and your fulfillment to the apex of living in the Spirit of Truth. Selah

Shalom, Agape, & Amen!
D.R. Ritchie (Servant)
