Give God Control of Your Life

Today's Scripture

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’” - (John 14:6).

Thoughts for Today

Whom we trust with our lives says volumes about our faith. When a difficult situation arises, do we turn to others for help? Do we attempt to resolve the situation alone? Or do we ask God to give us wisdom and guidance?

The moment we give our lives to the Lord, we must sever all ties that we have with our clever minds. No matter how intelligent we are, there will be times when only God’s wisdom can lead us to the perfect solution. We may not recognize it, especially if we feel trapped by our circumstances, but no problem we ever have is too great for God.

Our challenge as believers is taking this truth to heart. Sometimes, we give our hearts to God only to take them back when surrender to Him becomes inconvenient.

But when you commit your life into God’s hands, you must resolve to leave it there. Just as no money market account matures with excessive withdrawals, you will struggle to grow when you continually seize control of your life after depositing it into His hands.

It is never easy to relinquish total control. We feel helpless as we sit by and watch. Yet God wants us to surrender so He can do His greatest work in us, the work of completely transforming our hearts and minds as He molds us into the image of Christ. While we may have an idea of what God wants to do with our lives, we do not know the fullness of what He desires to do; therefore, we must allow Him to have total control.

As you give God control of your life, He will shape you into the person He intends for you to be. Remember: There is no one you can trust more than the Son of God.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, I want You to be in control of my life today, leading me through Your Holy Spirit. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.
