I loved this post by Greg Baird this week...
For years I’ve displayed a little laminated card on my bookshelf that I received from John Maxwell when I served under his leadership at Skyline Church. He used to say that if he gave us something was laminated, we’d better pay attention!
This particular card was entitled “Commitment is the Key”, and it has a statement that goes like this:
Until I am committed, there is a hesitancy, a chance to draw back. But the moment I definitely commit myself, then God moves also, and a whole stream of events erupt. All manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings, persons and material assistance which I could never have dreamed would come my way begin to flow toward me – the moment I make a commitment.
When I commit myself to what God wants me to do, I’ve found this to be so true over the years. I’ve also found the opposite to be true when I waffle on what God wants me to do.
