Grace and Peace my Friends! We've made it to day 10 of 21 days of prayer. Luke 10:27 teaches us, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.” This sounds like commitment to me. Today, we ask the question, “Are you committed or do you compromise?” It's time to evaluate your relationship with God. It's time to make a decision.
dedicated to a cause wholeheartedly
A person who is committed is dedicated to a cause or activity wholeheartedly. Someone who is not fully committed compromises. When you compromise generally you accept standards that are lower than desired. The difficult part of this is that people have been unofficially committed to the world for so long that they don't know what it means to be officially committed to God. In other words, you pay a high cost for low level living. As you think on this battle today, be honest with yourself and with God. Admit those things you do or have done, that compromises your commitment to a pure life. If you really desire to be committed to God, talk to Him in prayer about your tendency to give in to compromise when it feels like the easier or most logical thing to do.
means to pay a high cost for low level living
SAY THIS PRAYER: Father, help me understand the way of being fully committed. Today I place my goals and dreams in your hands. Please do not let your blessings to my life be killed by compromise. Give me the wisdom and personal discipline to choose Godliness. Matthew 6:24 tells me, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other." I ask for the fortitude to choose your way. I reject worldliness and hold on to Godliness. Give me a heart of love and solid commitment. Help me to understand and accept Your plans for me. Thank you Lord, for making this season a time of being committed to Your call and divine purpose for my life. In Jesus's name, Amen!
