Huh-just commit my plans to Him?

Have you ever had some plans that you thought were just awesome and were perfect for you and your skill sets and you were positive that those things that you wanted to do were in His will? I have! Each time that I have taken on an assignment without intensive prayer and fasting it has blown up in my face. What does commit really mean?

to bind or obligate, as by pledge or assurance; pledge: to commit oneself to a promise; to be committed to a course of action.

So, do I pledge myself and my actions to line up with God’s will for my life and He will make me successful? Well, man’s definition of success is not God’s definition of success (Luke 12:15).  So, how do I commit? Ask Him, pray to Him, seek His will by studying His word, and then listen to Him. He may send the message through a brother or sister in Christ. He may speak to you personally. It’s like a thought that comes to your head in the form of a small voice-listen. Either we believe all of God’s Word or we don’t believe any of it.  There is no such thing as partial faith. Psalms 32:8  announces “I will instruct and teach you about how you should live.
I will advise you as I look you in the eye” (NET). Proverbs 3:5-6 continued the same thought “ Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding.  Acknowledge him in all your ways, and he will make your paths straight.”

So, do you have concerns in your life that need solutions?  Then commit them to the Lord. Procure support through your pastors, a Christian Counselor – if your pastor is not trained in pastoral counseling this ministry is more than willing to talk through your concerns with you – using the support of Scripture and the power of the Holy Spirit. Contact us that is what we are here for.  We are a teaching and helping ministry!
