Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is keeping to a commitment or a decision that we have made the day after you made it. Going on a diet….walking/jogging regularly….journal entries….praying….reading your Bible. What is it that keeps us from keeping our commitments?
I did not regularly watch Transformers growing up, but the tag line…Transformers, more than meets the eye…has always stayed with me. When it comes to keeping our commitments that to God and to His people there is more than meets the eye when it comes to things getting in the way.
Ephesians 6:12 says, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Yesterday, I spoke on “Those who wait for the Lord will get new strength and be given the ability to fly high” from Isaiah 40:27-31. I challenged you to make a commitment and declare to God that you will bind yourself together with Him. Most of the church came forward in response and twisted their yarn together with the big rope that represented God’s strength. I told you four things that involve binding yourself together with God, which are: meditating on God’s word, talking with Him, getting together with other Christians to talk about God, and obey Him.
Today, is the day after. Will you keep your commitment? Or, will something get in your way from binding yourself to Him today? My encouragement is for you to identify what might get in your way from binding together with the Lord and then make a plan to not allow it to get in the way.
Don’t allow anything to get in your way from binding yourself together with the Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth today!
It’s Time to Fly!
