Trust and Commit

Home > Featured, Pastor's Blog > Trust and Commit

If I were to ask you, how do you see yourself? How would you respond? Your answer will tell a lot about how you think the Lord sees you. If you have an unfavorable view of yourself, then your expectations of the Lord blessing you is low. Why would the Lord bless somebody like me, because I’m undeserving? You feel this way because you believe others view you as you view yourself, and you believe this is how the Lord sees you.

In Psalm 22:1-8, we have someone that cried out to the Lord day and night to no prevail. That’s why he made this statement in verse 1, “my God, my God, why have You forsaken me?” He felt the Lord was far away from him. Also, he was scorned, despised, and mocked by others, therefore, he feels unworthy of receiving anything from the Lord.

We cannot allow how others view us to define how we think the Lord views us. The Lord is not looking at us with human eyes, and He is looking directly at our hearts. This is the core of our being, and the heart reveals the real you. The Lord is able to see pass your mistakes, and understand what caused you to go in the wrong direction. Then, He begins to guide you in a direction that will lead to your deliverance. However, deliverance can only occur when you commit your cause to the Lord. And you can only commit once you place your trust in the Lord. This is when you give the Lord the
opportunity to transition your life from failure to victory. This is when you come to the realization that the Lord did not forsake you. The Lord loves you and wants you to know your current state is not where He wants you to be. Are you ready to move because there is no question that the Lord is ready to make it happen.

I want you to know the Lord loves and cares for you. There are times when you will not get the answer you are looking for, but that does not mean you have been forsaken. There are two things the Lord wants you to do, and that is trust and commit. When you place your trust in the Lord, you are letting Him know I can’t make it on my own. Once you do, then you can commit to placing everything you are going through into His hands. Knowing He will work it out for your good. Continue to walk in your blessings!
