"I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end."  Psalm 119:112

The Psalmist said that he was resolved (had a firm determination) to keep and do God's word.  Are you resolved to do God's will?  Are you resolved to apply HIs word to your life?  Are you resolved to do it until the end?  Until the end of your life?  Until the end of the matter is completed that you are walking through? 

Daniel and the other Hebrews were resolved to follow the law of God even in captivity.  They had purposed in their hearts not to defile themselves with the king's meat.  They held onto and practiced God's law throughout their entire captivity in Babylon-- until they died.  They were able to do this because they had already resolved the matter in their hearts.  They went into captivity already determined to keep God's law no matter what it might cost them.  Therefore, it wasn't an issue for them. 

When we come to Christ as Savior, it isn't a matter of "trying" Him and seeing if it works for you.  It is a matter of resolving yourself (inclining, having a firm determination) that from that day forward you are giving your whole life to Him to follow Him until you die. 

Have you made that determination?  Are you determined that no matter what comes your way you will follow Him and keep His word for the rest of your life?  We don't need to be wishy-washy, and back and forth, and up and down.  We need to be resolved and settled in our hearts-- I will follow Him, period!

Have a great day.  Following the Lord and keeping His word is a life long decision.  Have you determined that you will do that?
