Resolve or Commit?

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will do it.” (Psalm 37:5)

Are you a person who makes a New Year’s resolution every year? Maybe you resolve to give more. Maybe you resolve to stick with that diet this time. Maybe you resolve to join a gym and actually go this year. Regardless, have you ever stopped to think why we make these resolutions every year and never stick to them? I think one answer is because we resolve to keep our resolutions ourselves. We make promises to ourselves that deep down we don’t intend to keep or if we do intend to keep them, we know that we will fail at it. Why? Because we are human; that’s why.

Instead of making a resolution, what if we made a commitment. A commitment and a resolution are not quite the same. A resolution is a firm decision you make, but a commitment is being dedicated to a cause. In the verse above, King David calls us to commit our ways to the Lord. The word he used here means to cast yourself without reservation upon God; in other words, be all in. Also, when we commit ourselves to the Lord, our commitment is not based upon ourself like a resolution; rather, the commitment is based upon God.

Psalm 37:6 tells us what happens when we commit ourselves to the Lord, “He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.” When we commit ourselves to the Lord, He gives us His righteousness. We are no longer unclean and unrighteous; we are righteous and clean, forever changed.

Question: Have you committed to the Lord?

Challenge: Memorize and meditate on Psalm 37:5-6.

Prayer: Lord, may we commit ourselves to you because you alone are faithful.
