“So I will sing praise to Your name forever, that I may daily perform my vows.” -Psalm 61:8
When you were baptized, you promised your life to God and that you’ll serve Him with a good conscience. Furthermore, during the course of your life, you’ve likely made other vows and promises to God. Maybe you vowed to kick a bad habit, to be nicer to your sister or to read the Bible more often.
What promises have you made to the Lord? How are you doing on those? Are you remembering to fulfill your end of the deal each day?
Too often, we make promises to God and then after a couple of days, we forget about them. Here, David talks about daily performing his vows to the Lord.
So, today, I urge you to take stock of the promises and vows you’ve made to God. Make a list. Then start a chart: on the vertical y-axist list the dates of this coming month and on the horizontal x-axis, list out those vows. Use a Google doc, a planner, a wall calendar or a piece of graphing paper. But start to keep track of those vows daily. If you fulfill a vow, give yourself a gold star or a smiley face for that day. Let that be a constant reminder of what your priorities are. Live out your vow daily and see how your life is transformed!
