Commitment means pledging oneself to something or to someone else, with dedication and loyalty. Therefore, making a commitment is making a promise, a vow, a pledge, intentional obligation.
We commit ourselves to someone or something daily, whether consciously or subconsciously— to our families, jobs, laws, etc. In all these things, how committed are we to increasing our relationship with God?
We are busier these days as ever, but are we so busy that we can’t be intentional about committing to give the Creator of ALL our time?
Acts 17:28 states, “In Him we live and move and have our being.” Therefore, committing to spend time with God daily, giving thanks for his blessings, should be an intentional act. Without Him, we aren’t!
When you love someone, you commit to spend time with them. If you love God, make the commit today to increase your prayer time, Bible study time, and alone time with Him. “Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act.” Psalm 37:5 (NRSV)
Pray and ask God what areas in your life you can become more committed, then be intentional about your commitment!
