The Kitchen Table Day 22
Today’s Reading: Psalm 37:1-17; Ruth 2:1-16; James 5:1-6
Commit your way to the Lord: trust Him, and He will act
Don’t be afraid of commitment, it will determine your consequences. A lot of people think or act as if they have no control over their consequences but that’s not true. Sure, things happen that we don’t plan on or plan for, but we find ourselves in the consequences of our choices. Ruth found herself in the consequences of her choices to commit herself to Naomi and God. James says that there are consequences to our choices even when it comes to meeting the needs of others. Listen, commitment might start with words but it shows up in our walk, our work and our will. Our choices show up in our conversations and our commitments. Ruth is a great model here because she didn’t just confess her love, she lived out her love and commitment. Many will miss out on the promises of God because they made a confession but not a commitment to God. Trust Him and keep trusting Him, you’re about to see Him act from heaven.
