A. W. Tozer once wrote, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” Just think about the implications of that statement. What comes into your mind when you think about God is the most important thing about you.
Not your spouse, your kids, your friends, your job, your home, or anything else. But what you believe about God is the most important thing about you.
If you continue to boil it down, it all comes down to trust. Do you trust God? Fully? Wholly? Unconditionally?
For those who have professed faith in Christ, we would like to say that we do trust God. And there are moments in our lives when we do have absolute trust in Him.
But there are other moments when we may not have full trust in God. Moments when we want Him to to accomplish our will instead of us fulfilling His will. Moments when we want God to intervene in others’ lives, but not in our own. Moments when we may be afraid of what could happen if we give Him control.
READING & PRAYERS:
Is there any area of your life right now in which you’re not trusting God? Take the opportunity today to release it over to Him.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I confess there are moments when I want You to fulfill my will instead of me being willing and open to live out Your will. This week, may I open my life completely to You, trusting You to accomplish within me immeasurably more than I could ask or imagine. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
