Have You Forgotten Your Place?
Cheryl Curtis, DailyWord Email Devotions

Verse:
 

"But this is what I commanded them saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you that it may be well with you.'" Jeremiah 7:23

 
Lesson:
 

We sometimes attempt to make God fit into a mold we have designed. We may never miss a church service, and faithfully go through the motions saying all the appropriate words and yet feel as though something is still lacking spiritually. We serve God and He is what He is, we cannot change Him as much as we may try.

Have we forgotten our place? How often do we fall on our face before him broken, humbled and totally surrendered? What is so dear to our hearts that we can't relinquish into His hands? We want God to be Lord over our lives but we exclude Him from areas we don't want to be touched or changed. If we want the blessings and the promises we can't forget the sacrifice and obedience. We don't create plans for our lives and then ask God to bless them, we seek His plan and He will bless it.

It is not religion and traditions that make us what God wants but it is our intimate relationship with Him and our willingness to surrender all to Him.

 
Prayer:
 
"Lord Jesus, I don't question your management of my life. I trust that you are taking me exactly where I need to go. I surrender to you, and ask that you take this life and make it what you will. Let it glorify you. Forgive me for attempting to make you fit my life instead of surrendering it into your care. My life is yours to design as you will." - Amen
