Sometimes it can be really hard to want to commit to something. Maybe a friend invites you to do something Friday night, but you think maybe something better will come up, and so you have difficulty committing.
And while your plans for Friday probably don’t really make a huge difference in the long run, when it comes to the things of God, commitment is important.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. – Hebrews 12:1 (NLT)
If you’re going to live the good life that God has planned for you, you’ve got to commit to it. That means you’ve got to determine that no matter what things happen, you’re going all-in for God.
Even when things are hard. Even when you don’t always get it, remember that God is there and He’s for you. Commit to follow Him. Let Him lead and guide your life. Doing that will always bring you lasting peace and happiness.
