SELAH Daily Devotions!
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee…Fear not; for I am with thee. Even everyone that is called by my name; for I have created him for my glory; I have formed him, yeah, I have made him.” Isaiah 43:2, 5
Jesus is our living example of God, a Son, a Servant, a man, who is totally committed!
Remember that song, “Fully Committed”. I believe it topped the charts and was hailed by choirs all over the world for months. Yet, I wonder how many of us were just repeating as opposed to actually repenting? UUMMMM! Wonder why you hardly ever hear that song these day?
Have you noticed that many of us struggle in making commitments, and even more critical, in our being totally committed?
Commitment is one of the greatest forms of worship! My brothers and my sisters, God is calling Zion to a higher place of worship and praise! It’s not about the lifting up of our hands; it’s about the lifting up of our hearts!
Do you believe that every believer has a ministry? Or are you one of those who still think that that’s just for the card carrying saints? Well it’s time for you to know the Truth! Jesus is calling every single one of us to be His witnesses in the earth; and commitment is the character of a true disciple! (Ref. 2 Corinthians 5:18) Unfortunately, too many of God’s people are so pre-occupied by the ”self-centered-what about me-I-doctrine” that they never answer the call!
I’m not saying that God doesn’t want us to enjoy the blessings of His Salvation Benefits Package, but He doesn’t want them to consume all of our tasks, time and talents with ‘what’s in it for me’ that we lose sight of the Eternal Kingdom Mission, i.e. SOULS FOR CHRIST!
NOW THAT U KNOW, lets’ all Pray,
“Father, now that I know what You really want from me, I surrender and commit all –“my everything”. Everything I am, everything I got, everything I’m not; I give to you. Unto you O Lord, I lift up my soul. I release it, my ‘self’, into your hands. I empty myself unto and into You. Like a person who is being committed to a mental health institution!
I COME because Your Word promises to keep my mind in perfect peace; like a person who has been committed to a high security penal institution, like the Apostle Paul, I am a prisoner of Christ, I am being confined for life, with no chance of parole nor probation!
Lord Jesus, as I COME. I come to abide, remain forever in the secret place, under the shadow of the Almighty God; I commit MY SELF – my heart, my thoughts, my body, my emotions, my relationships, my care, MY WILL – MY BEING – my entire EXISTENCE!
I come to you now, and I volunteer my service –I give up my rights and bow to Your Right as my Creator to rule and to reign over my life! I come to you now, without fear, fully persuaded in light of all that You’ve done for me, it’s only my reasonable service! (Ref. Romans 12:1)
Today, Father, I submit, surrender and commit ALL I AM To You, in The Majestic Name Lord Jesus! Amen 3x!”
TOTALLY COMMITTED? SERIOUSLY? WOW! #freedom
