Commitment has almost become a word of the past and
very few people of today truly understand its' meaning.
The term used in older times by the law system defines
commitment as: mittimus - a written order of a court
directing that a person be imprisoned. This is what
committing ourselves to the Lord means. We become
prisoners of His. While this sounds as though we have
no freedom, we are actually set free from the prison
of sin and we are free to serve the Lord. Would we see
living in clean conscience, peace, and joy as something
unpleasantly confining. I think not. As prisoners of the
Lord we are free to say no to sin and we are under the
loving protection and everlasting life of our Lord.

Heavenly Father, we ask for your forgiveness when we
lack trust to fully commit our ways to you. Give us the
assurance and understanding to see that committing
our ways to you will bring us righteousness and the
total love and protection of your heart toward us. In
Jesus' name.

Read Psalm 37: 5,6

"Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he
will do this: He will make your righteousness shine
like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the
noonday sun." (NIV)

"Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him;
and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth
thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as
the noonday." (KJV)

These are great words of encouragement and it's not something that's just a one time deal. It's a daily thing, sometimes even a moment by moment thing.
