“I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.” Psalm 130:5.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Daniel 5-6, Psalm 130, and Luke 3.
I was drawn to the “whole being” part of this verse.
Is my mind engaged in waiting to be sure of what He wants me to do?
I am easily distracted. I am easily side-tracked. I have a host of good intentions.
Sadly, I am unable to sustain a total turn to God. He wants that from me.
I often think of things in relation to me instead of in relation to Him. I believe that God wants me to do more reading but will I approach the reading time as if it is ordained by Him not me?
God has a plan for my life. For me to have access to His Plan, I must remember that it doesn’t come on a sheet of paper entitled, “Today’s Plan.” It will be an ongoing thing. I cannot assume that I can “take it from here” and move off as I see fit.
I have surrendered my life to God many times and often in the ending prayer on this blog. Why do I undo that “surrender” so often?
“Lord, I need You every second. Not periodically. Forgive me for choosing me over You. I cannot get things right on my own. I need You. Prick my conscience when I have wandered off. I don’t want that happening. I love You, Lord.”
During what portion of your waking hours are you intentionally yielded to God?
