Godly Commitment

 This summer I have faced great challenges that would or could have been sources of great stress and worry.  In the face of this adversity, I took this verse from my new book, Promises for Dynamic Living, and worked on memorizing it.  As I did, I claimed its promise before God not knowing how God would work out my difficult situation but trusting Him to act on my behalf.   This week my situation has been resolved.  God’s answer was not what I expected and not from a source I expected.  Isn’t that just like God?  He has unlimited resources and when I try to guess or conjecture how things will be worked out, I never get it right.  His answer is always perfect and fits all of our needs.  I pray that you can claim this verse too and see God act on your behalf as you trust in Him.

Blessings, Linda

Day 14 from Promises for Dynamic Living

Psalm 37:5-6  “Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.”

Promise: God promises to act on my behalf, bring out righteousness and justice for me if I will commit myself to Him and trust Him.

How are you at commitment? Do you start new things with great enthusiasm just to let them go in a day or a week? Learning to commit to the LORD is a lifetime process that increases as we study His Word, pray, and seek to follow Him. Truly committing to Him, in both faith and action, allows us to walk in God’s light and see His righteousness and justice more clearly. Will you persevere in God’s pathway, allowing Him to mold and shape you into the righteous person He desires you to be?

 Lessons and Truths:

1.God is good and wants only good things for me.                   2.Following God requires trust and commitment.             3.God has the power to mold and shape my character.       4.God is just and righteous.

Prayer: Lord, create in me a spirit of commitment to you that I may grow and see evidence of righteousness and justice in my life. I know that you are good and that you want only good things for me. Help me to trust you fully so that I can grow and become more like Jesus each day. Amen.

What is my response to God’s promise?

Am I fully trusting God and committing myself to following Him?     What evidence is there in my life that this is happening?

Where do I see godly righteousness in my life?

“Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!” Luke 12:27-28
