Many people live their lives only receiving drops here and there of God’s goodness and grace. They live on an up and down roller coaster of awesome highs and depressing lows. God blesses them because He is loving and merciful but only so far. The full measure of His glory and grace is not released in their lives because although Jesus is their Savior, they have not made Him their Lord. When He is Lord, your life is surrendered in obedience and trust in God and His will. He then can release a great outpour of Himself in your life. When He is Lord, you may face adversity, but your life remains on a steady climb upward, going from glory to glory, and from faith to faith. When He is Lord, you go from just barely surviving on earth to walking in great dominion, authority and power! You go from hoping God will heal your body, to knowing you are healed through Jesus. You go from hoping your children turn out alright, to knowing God will make your seed mighty upon the earth. You go from hoping God will bless you financially, to knowing you are already blessed with everything you need to be a great blessing in the earth. You go from just barely hanging on by a thread to receiving an abundance of grace, more than enough wisdom, and more than enough power to conquer! Let Him be Lord and watch Him release the full measure of His glory in your life!
“Always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light. For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.” (Colossians 1:12-14 NLT)
Prayer: Father, You alone are God. I surrender my life completely to You as Lord and I receive by faith the full measure of Your love, grace, wisdom, and power in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
