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." ESV 
Commitment has become a word that very few people of today truly understand. Originally, commitment is defined as: mittimus - a written order of a court directing that a person be imprisoned. Is this what committing ourselves to the Lord means? Yes! We freely become prisoners of His. This sounds like we are giving up all our freedom, but actually we are set free from the prison of sin, and become imprisoned with freedom to live in boundless love and grace, serving the Lord. Would we see living with a clean conscience, peace, and joy as something equal to being confined in a small prison cell. Of course not! As prisoners of the Lord, we are free to say no to sin, that once held us in that small prison cell, and we are under the loving protection and everlasting peace of our Lord.
Heavenly Father, we ask for Your forgiveness when we lack trust to fully commit our ways to You. Give us assurance and courage to know that committing our ways to You will bring such freedom to us we will rejoice for eternity. In Jesus' name, Amen.
