“I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.”
The Psalmist had promised that He would keep the commandments of God. He wanted to keep his word that he would obey God’s Word.
How many times have we promised to obey the Word?
How many times have we said we would do something for the Lord?
Our promises to Him must mean something to us.
Making a promise to the Lord is a very serious thing. If we do not intend on fulfilling our vow to the Lord, we should not make it in the first place.
“When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.”
When we surrender to do something for the Lord, we cannot go back on our promise to Him, for He will not go back on what He has promised us. The Apostle Paul knew that God keeps His promises; and sometimes, He uses us to fulfill them.
“Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness; In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;”
God chooses to commit to us the responsibility and privilege to proclaim His Gospel to those around us. Will we commit to do our part so that all may know Him?
If we want the Lord to order our steps, we cannot go back on our word to Him.
Joshua 23-24 | Acts 17 | Psalm 75
