THE POWER OF COMMITMENT!
Updated: Sep 12, 2022
“Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.” (Psalm 37:5 AMPC)
“Give God the right to direct your life, and as you trust him along the way, you’ll find he pulled it off perfectly!” (Psalm 37:5 TPT)
I commit fully to You, Lord. I roll and repose each care of my load on You. I want You to direct my life showing me the paths You want me to take. I trust, lean on, rely on, and am confident in You. I know You will bring to pass the promises You have made. I trust and commit myself to You.
"You will never fulfill your vision if you are not committed to it. This is why the final step is to commit to pursuing it. Also, you must commit your vision to God on a regular basis. (Dr. Myles Munroe)
Some questions for me to consider:
How do I follow through on my commitment to my vision? Specifically, what does follow through look like?
Do the people closest to me know my vision?
Can people that don't know me sense what I'm passionate about when we interact?
I pour a lot into the lives of others. Who is pouring into my life consistently and seasonally?
What's my accountability plan so I don't get distracted, detoured, or derailed? How will I combat discouragement?
Dr. Munroe mentioned steps to writing your vision in his devotional, “Vision with Purpose and Power: A 90-Day Devotional.” I highly recommend this book if you really want to pursue purpose and remember:
IT’S. NOT. TOO. LATE!
I'm going to share the final step Dr. Munroe gave us in today’s devotional:
Commit to Your Vision:
Commit to your vision.
Commit your vision to God.
“As you move forward to implement your vision plan, remember these seven principles of vision, which are drawn from Habakkuk 2:2-3:
Then the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” (Habakkuk 2:2-3 NIV)
The principle of documentation (write the vision)
The principle of simplification (make it plain)
The principle of shared vision (give it to the heralds)
The principle of participation (let them run with it)
The principle of timing (an appointed time)
The principle of patience (wait for it)
The principle of faith (it will certainly come)
“You will need to make a specific decision that you are going to follow through with what you want to do, acknowledging that God may refine your plans as He leads you through the process.” (Dr. Myles Munroe)
I pray that these steps help you to pursue and write your vision. Continually seek God’s face to refine your vision. Keep it before you so it remains in your heart firing your desire to commit and continue.
Be Encouraged! ❤
