Commitment is a word that drives people. It is the moments in which you become the most resolute about a decision or choice. What do your choices or non choices say about you?
Many of us struggle with making commitments. Many of us do not honor our commitments. It is when we embrace the strength of our word do we become the person that we are destined to be.
There is a wonderful in Matthew 5:37:
Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
How many times have you wished that you could be stronger in w hat you would or world not do. Begin with this prayer:
Lord, I give myself to You, whatever the cost may be. Take every aspect of my life and use me for Your Kingdom to glorify Your Name. I’m not here on earth to do my own thing, to seek my own fulfillment or my own glory. I’m not here to indulge my desires, to increase my possessions, to impress people to be popular, to prove I’m somebody important, or to promote myself. I’m not here to even be relevant or successful by human standards. I’m here to please You. To live like this, I yield myself to You, to know You, to love You, to obey You, and to grow in your Holy fear. I desire to become a person who understands and lives in reverent awe of You. I’ll do anything that You want me to do, go anywhere that You want me to go and say anything that You want me to say. Father, there isn’t any gift that You have for me that I don’t want. If You want to use me in a way that I’m not used to, I yield myself to that. Today, I affirm my love for You, my God, and I choose to live and minister in Your way. I trust You, Lord, to do that which I cannot do for myself. Teach me, guide me, and empower me to fear Your name.
Today is that chance. You can start right here and now. Try this prayer for 40 days and see what changes in your life.
