Psalm 37:5

Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Sometimes we don’t live up to our commitments. We commit to something and then we just fall through the cracks here and there and have to back out of what we said we were going to do. Commitment is a choice; it is an attitude and a habit that you develop. Commitment means following through on what you say you will do. It means real dedication to a cause or purpose. The most important commitment we have to carry out is our commitment to the Lord and His Word.

Charles Stanley once said:

“Too many Christians have a commitment of convenience. They'll stay faithful as long as it's safe and doesn't involve risk, rejection, or criticism. Instead of standing alone in the face of challenge or temptation, they check to see which way their friends are going.”

God wants His people to be committed to Him, regardless of what is going on in the world. In this day and age, with the truth we have been blessed to have, we must be committed to His purpose and plan more so than ever before. God must have people committed to Him to fulfil His will. When we waver or slack up on our commitment, it slows the Lord’s ability to use us effectively.

Commitment to God means a hard life with many trials and troubles. The Lord uses all of these to teach us, build us up, and make us strong. When you commit your ways unto Him and trust that He will fulfill His promise He will bring His purpose to pass. His way will become clear to you when you commit your life to Him.

Now, last night when I got all the kiddies away, my wife and all, from the house, I made a commitment to the Lord God. And I said to the Lord God, "If You will bless me in the way that I go, I'll serve You. But You will have to show me where to go, and how to go, and what to do." So I committed myself to the Lord. With the—with the ministry and all, I committed it to the Lord. And I said, "Wherever You open, whatever You do, I'll walk in that way. Until You make a way, I'll just continue on as I am until You make the way." And I asked Him to make it so clear that I would not be deceived then, for I truly believe that we're right at a crossroads of something to happen.
