What I learned from my Pastor today Commitment

Being committed to the Lord, not wavering because a double minded man is unstable in all his ways and can not receive anything from the Lord. A commitment unto death not the vows of marriage that some take lightly. James and all the apostles had a death sentence in them and for sure they died and paid that price. To some Jesus did not commit himself to them because he knew what was in their hearts. I know what is in God's heart so I am able to commit to him. If he was a man perhaps I could be moved but I am committed to God and I die to myself.
I am in the army of the Lord if a soldier commits to the army he can not just turn around and walk out - it's commitment. Talk can be cheap when it comes to commitment but the question is,"Can you walk it?" For Daniel there was a commitment already in his heart, there was no room for him to defile himself. For the three Hebrew guys they had their commitment to the highest King and the commandment of Nebuchadnezzar did not shake them; they could not be moved and they refused to bow. When you are already dead, death or fire will not win over the dead. We know that he is able but if not we are not committed to his deliverance. If he heals me I am with him if he doesn't I am still with him whichever way I can not loose. Each time when you put his will above yours you know he will come through. I will praise him when I am up. I will praise him when I am down. I don't know how I will come out but I am committed. I can not be committed and not be blessed. When God picked Job for his trial it was Job's commitment that was proved. So, no matter what comes your way the Forth Man still gets in the fire and the same God that came through for Job will still come through for you. Dare to give your commitment promise to God today and decide never to turn back. Stay committed!
