Possibly discipline, yet at the end of the matter the choice to love and restore you.

God is unpredictable simply because each of us are different, but in one way we can always be sure of him. He loves us and directs us twoard what's best for us even when it's not what we'd choose.

If you lose your confidence in God's love for you, sooner or later you'll see he's never changed.

Psalm 91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

The Bible tells us that it is better to make no vow to God than to make a vow and not keep it. In Deuteronomy 23:21 we read, "When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee." Whether you call it a vow or a committment, it's basically the same thing, if you don't intend to follow through with it, you shouldn't make the vow/committment in the first place.

You have committed a sin of omitance, where you failed to do something.

Deva, Be comforted that you are not the only one who has failed God. All through the Bible we see other believers in God who have made misstakes. I also vowed to God and failed to keep it. I hurt bad over it for a long time. God corrected me and still loved me. This was a hard lesson to learn. You will heal, God still loves you very much.

I believe if one could see God, they would see a tear run down his cheek. I know that we can't see him, but like Eloy said, dissapointed, in you and be heart broken. It is better to not make a vow at all than to make one and break it.

I geuss it depends if it is some thing God told you to do or some thing from self, I once comitted to never marry {I was 12} but God brought me a husband. that was a commitmet God didn't ask for. then there was a commitment to tithe. I didn't and money for tithe went to repares that came up. I was punished for lack of commitment. is it a commitment God asked you to do?

We are all given free will. We are all God's children and he loves us very much. If we make a commitmenmt to God and then do not keep it it would sadden God very much. Obviously he would want us to re-commit our lives to him and repent for falling away.
He does not respond with revenge or anything as he himself created us with free will and it is our decision in the end whether to follow him or not. The response is OURS in the end when WE ourselves respond to either Heaven or hell
