Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails (Prov 19:21). Just yesterday I determined NOT to create any TO-DO-LISTS of goals or resolutions. This was highly unusual for me but I felt SURE that I was not to do it as I always have. After the new year came in I understood why because the Lord spoke the need for me to rather create "VOWS." What a revelation for there is incredible difference between goals, plans or even resolutions and a VOW! God has encouraged me to GO ANOTHER LEVEL... DEEPER this year than ever before and this requires my placing a demand of the super upon the natural like never before. I make goals, plans and resolutions with the intention to succeed, but the truth is I might succeed; I might not. But when I make my VOW to the Lord I have the wind of the Spirit backing me; propelling my sails FORWARD knowing that this is not casual for me, but covenant.
(Deut 23:21) says: “When you make a vow to the Lord your God, you shall not delay to pay it; for the Lord your God will surely require it of you, and it would be sin to you." Obedience is better than sacrifice and I CANNOT, I REFUSE to sacrifice my destiny due to sinning by not keeping my vow(s).
I serve a covenant-keeping God and when I cut covenant with Him, that's a covenant to covenant connection and a MUCH MORE COMPELLING position to be in. Not only to begin or end a thing, but to check it off as utterly "COMPLETED!" Selah.
