“But God is my king……” Psalm 74:12.
God is in charge, or at least that’s what I say.
Think of how I live, though. Don’t I behave as if I’m in charge!
Why don’t I defer more to Him? “If the Lord approves…” Do I ever say that?
I say, instead, “I will……….”
God is not mocked. He knows my heart. He knows my motivation.
Do I really want a king? Sure, I want to be in His Kingdom, but am I willing to be subjected to Him?
What would subjection look like? I think it would start with an attitude of wanting to please the King.
If I can’t start there then I am looking to please someone else……..Satan. That seems harsh because I would not intentionally say that I want to please Satan but how else can deliberately not pleasing God be interpreted?
I must report for “duty” 24/7. “Here I am, my King,” is the way to start. No strings attached. No preconceived notions. Just, “Here I am, my King.”
Conclusion: “Here I am, my King.”
