Lord, You Need To....
So this morning with new conviction I said, Lord, I give my life to you, heart, body and soul. I sat for a moment, reflecting on the importance of what I had just said. I opened my Bible to no particular scripture, but I was preparing to read the scriptures that go along with my daily devotionals. Before I started, I lifted up to the Lord a scheduling problem I have next week. I started to say, Lord you need to........ It was then I heard Him say, "Are you kidding me? You are already telling ME what I should be doing?" I think He was laughing at me, His silly but faithful child.
I am reminded Lord, that when I dedicate my life to you, that means I let go of all the control, and simply lean on you.
Before I picked up the first devotional "something" led me to the Bible, now open on my lap. My eyes focused on a verse that almost seemed to be in bold, standing out from the rest of the scripture on that page. It was 2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work (NIV).
