How committed are you

Your commitment is attractive; it will make room for you

“For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.”
(2 Chronicles 16:9, New King James Version)

A successful person is the person who is seeing good results and increase in what he does. He is steadily making progress towards the goals he has set for himself. He is not stagnant. He is moving forward and is making impact. A failure is not the person who has failed before. A failure is the individual who is not achieving anything at all and is resigned to it. He is that person who sees himself as low class and he feels inferior. He does not recognise opportunities and has no expectations in life. A failure is a person who has put his hands on several ventures and nothing is producing for him. He has accepted failure as his destiny. God does not want anybody to be a failure. You can be a very successful person too.

One of the fundamental keys to success in life, be it business, career, studies, marriage or any relationship is commitment. The scripture says that the Lord’s eyes run to and fro throughout the ends of the earth to show Himself strong on the behalf of those whose hearts are committed to Him. God will only reveal Himself in your situation when you are committed to Him. Similarly, anything that you are committed to will always produce results for you. Anything that God gives to you, whatever it is, has the potential to make you wealthy. God never gives anything, connects you with anybody or bring you into a place if it cannot add any value to you: for the Bible says in Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” There is nothing that the Lord gives you to do that cannot bring increase to your life.

Whatever you have now can bring increase to your life. Whatever you are doing now can bring you great increase. The people you have in your life now that are God sent can contribute to your greatness in life. Everything and anything that God has put in your hand has the potential to make you great in life. Moreover, nothing will be released into your life until you give it your commitment. It is not the place you reside that determines your destiny. As a covenant person, you can make it anywhere. It is not the name or the kind of job you do that determines how high you will rise in life, I have seen professionals of high standing fail in life, and with the same token I have also seen uneducated people go into small scale businesses which have risen to be big capital ventures. The secret of success has nothing to do with the title of the job you do, or the description of the duties it entails. The secret is in the help of God and our commitment to whatever we are doing.

Anything God gives you has the potential to increase you but the thing will not release into your life what it contains until you give it your commitment. I see commitment as the resolution which an individual makes to give himself to something, to stay with the thing no matter what, and give to the thing whatever it places demands on, until it yields his expectation. Therefore, for you to have a successful marriage, for you to qualify with very good grades, for you to have a great relationship with your fiancé or fiancée, for you to achieve business breakthrough, or rise to your peak in your career, you will have to make a resolution to stay with it no matter what, and be willing to give what it places demands on until it yields for you.
