I Commit

Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have ransomed me, O Lord, God of truth. — Psalm 31:5

This is one of those verses that I am sure I have read a million times but it jumped off the page today and overwhelmed me. Into Your hand, the hand of God — the Creator, Almighty, Sovereign, Perfect, Holy, Omnipotent, Righteous, Just, Eternal, Omniscient, Merciful, Loving, Truthful, Redeemer, Savior! Wow! What better guardian of my spirit could I commit?

Then the overwhelming emphasis of the word “commit”. Commit is a word not to be taken lightly. We commit to stay married for better or worse. We commit to a job to be faithful and loyal. We commit to go out to eat with a friend. But this commit is to GOD. . . This commit is essential to our spiritual walk. This commit is total surrender to the Ruler of our hearts. This commit is to give all that we have and are, to entrust, pledge ourselves to the One who ransomed us. Again, Wow! I am blown away at the gravity of this one little word.

I had to take a look at myself and ask if I have committed my spirit to the One who ransomed me, Jesus Christ. Have I entrusted my spirit to the God of truth? I had to step back and evaluate my walk. I want to be able to truly say, “Into Your hand I commit my spirit” to the God of all truth so He can do a good work in me for His glory.

Thank You Lord Jesus for ransoming me, for paying the price on Calvary. I trust You and so I commit my spirit into Your hand. May You be glorified through me in the fulfillment of Your perfect plan. To You Lord God be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Have you truly committed your spirit to the Lord? If not, take this time now to do so. Evaluate your level of commitment. It really is all or nothing.

My Heart’s Desire

 And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. — Philippians 4:10
Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. — Psalm 37:4-5
Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it. — Deuteronomy 10:14

To God be the glory!

God is our Supplier. He supplies all our needs according to His riches — He owns cattle on a thousand hills — to Him belong heaven and earth and all that is in it. Is there anything you need that He cannot supply? The Bible says “no”.

Sometimes though, we want. Does God give us our wants? Sometimes . . .

My husband and I are on a fixed income due to my not working so I can care for my Mom. My daughter is getting married and the plan was for a very simple wedding. Bride, groom, and two witnesses with my husband doing the ceremony. Well, my Mom and I are here now to celebrate this covenant marriage which means more family members wanting to be present and as word gets out more and more want to be a part.

Back to finances. I desire to make my daughter’s special day a precious memory and so to prayer I went.

Bottom line — God has supplied what is needed to make it a special event financially. I did a little investigating as to how much supplies would be and the store I went to has all wedding paraphernalia at 50% off. Is my God amazing or what?!!!!  I delight myself in the Lord and He gives me the desires of  my heart. Be clear that the desire of our heart is really the desire of God’s heart made manifest through us. Just as we give special treats to those we love, God sometimes gives us special treats too.

I commit my way to You my Lord and trust in You. Thank You for fulfilling this desire of my heart. To You Lord God be the glory!

Continually seeking Him,
