Psalm 76:12 ‘Make vows to the LORD, your God and fulfil them’
A vow is a commitment that transcends circumstances, in other words it is not conditional. Are you ready to make commitments to our LORD? We are encouraged to take time and to consider Ecclesiastes 5:4 ’..better not make a vow than make it and not fulfil it.’ We are weak and frail in our humanity, how then can we believe we can keep a vow? A vow must be at one with God’s will, if we are diligently working and praying within God’s will, then in turn we will be obedient to the commitment we make to God. If we take the Psalm above as an essential truth in our faith, then we should spend time in prayer and reflection on the gifts and talents God has given us; will we be using these for God’s glory in making vows to him? A vow can be commitment to a fast where we need God’s strength to carry us through, something to consider with Lent pending or other as God leads you. Bless you.
Prayer. Holy Father, today we pray that you will convict our hearts on the vows we must make so that we can move into a deeper obedience to you.
