To Thee I Pledge

Author requests article critique
As Thee and Thy Word is living -
surrounding and protecting me before and behind,
In Thee Will I Trust ... To Thee Will I Pledge!
I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. Revelation 3:15-16 (NAS)
"You shall be careful to perform what goes out from your lips, just as you have voluntarily vowed to the LORD your God, what you have promised." Deuteronomy 23:23 (NAS)
And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD : "If you give the Ammonites into my hands, whatever comes out of the door of my house to meet me when I return in triumph from the Ammonites will be the LORD's, and I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering." Then Jephthah went over to fight the Ammonites, and the LORD gave them into his hands. He devastated twenty towns from Aroer to the vicinity of Minnith, as far as Abel Keramim. Thus Israel subdued Ammon. When Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah, who should come out to meet him but his daughter, dancing to the sound of tambourines! She was an only child. Except for her he had neither son nor daughter. When he saw her, he tore his clothes and cried, "Oh! My daughter! You have made me miserable and wretched, because I have made a vow to the LORD that I cannot break." Judges 11:30-34 (NAS)
In wholehearted faith and allegiance, pledge yourself
- heart, soul, mind and strength - unto the Lord God Almighty,
Savior and Redeemer of this life and life everlasting ... ...
I pledge allegiance to the Rock,
on which I firmly take my stand,
and to the Republic - one Body, one Church -
a true and treasured possession
of One GOD - Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
by whom Death is conquered and Life is won
for me, for you, for all, forever

He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
Psalm 62:6 (NAS)
"This day the LORD your God commands you to do these statutes and ordinances. You shall therefore be careful to do them with all your heart and with all your soul. "You have today declared the LORD to be your God, and that you would walk in His ways and keep His statutes, His commandments and His ordinances, and listen to His voice. "The LORD has today declared you to be His people, a treasured possession, as He promised you, and that you should keep all His commandments; and that He will set you high above all nations which He has made, for praise, fame, and honor; and that you shall be a consecrated people to the LORD your God, as He has spoken." Deuteronomy 26:16-19 (NAS)
So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36 (NAS)

It is better to keep silent than to speak and make a vow in haste.Whatever we vow is still required of us this day and age.Some people think this no longer applies, but they are so wrong.I appreciate this post Jody.God bless you.

Jody, thanks for the comment on my article. I miss commenting on FW friends' articles. I'm hoping to be able to once in awhile, despite my increased care-giving responsibilities. ... Your very good article: To Thee I Pledge, is good for everyone, regardless of country. What the U.S. does, Canada is not far behind. So, as your article pointed out, unless we repent, we shall all suffer the consequences... I have always been sad when I read what Jephthah pledged. But I respect that he carried out what he pledged. His daughter will have a great reward because she did not stop her father from honouring his pledge...God's blessings, Jody...Helen
