Committment leads to peace
The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You. – Isaiah 26:3
What does it mean to be steadfast? The dictionary gives its meaning a resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering. The peace of God is simply not for those who will not commit their lives to God.
Now, that may sound harsh, but it is really the inner rebellion of the carnal man which persuades us that being firm and unwavering is impossible, because if it is indeed impossible, then we have ‘permission’ to waver, it becomes acceptable to be disloyal. We tend to believe whatever is conducive to justifying how we have already decided to think or behave.
That being said, saints of God, it’s not impossible to be unwavering. It’s not even difficult! Remember, He said, ‘My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matt. 11:30)
Commitment is a DECISION! God, through the Holy Spirit will work in you to do His good pleasure, if you truly and simply decide to trust Him (Phil. 2:13).
Will you dare to trust God today?
