Psalm 37:5–6 (NKJV) 5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass. 6 He shall bring forth your righteousness as
the light, And your justice as the noonday.
Commit your way to the Lord! Once you have committed your life to Christ
let go of the past.
Accepting Christ is letting go of the past. Trust God. We cannot change the
past. Living in either the success or the failure of the past steals from the
present moment God has given us. Our life in Christ is one of hope and joy.
God desires for us to live in His peace. Paul writes in Romans 15:13, “Now
may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you
may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
To accept Christ is to commit your life to Him. God does not take our sins
and burdens so we can continue to live our lives as we were, but there is a
transformation to where we desire to serve Him and not Satan. No longer do
we live for this world, but we are transformed not just in our heart but in our
mind. Romans 12:2, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be
transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that
good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Committing ourselves to God takes us from the darkness of a sinful world
and brings us into the light of God. We have a choice. We can serve the god
of this world (Satan) or the God of all creation, the one and true God.
14 “Now therefore, fear the LORD, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and
put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the river
and in Egypt. Serve the LORD!
15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this
day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that
were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose
land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
Once you have committed your life to God, TRUST HIM! Learn everything
you can about Him. Get involved in a Bible Believing Church. Do not allow
the past to dictate your present now.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
