Walking in Submission

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
Yesterday morning accelerated out of control as did the night before without my knowing why. Then on the way to pick up my crew, I noticed the truck was accelerating without my foot pressing down on the accelerator. Fortunately (thank You Jesus) I was able to calmly figure out how to stop this from happening. I still need to look into why. However, I can say I do know why Friday night and yesterday morning accelerated out of control. I disconnected from Jesus losing my balance by failing to submit. Once again thanks to Jesus, I was able to calmly figure this out and bring the day back into balance by submitting myself to Him. Now I just need to work on doing this more often.

A verse…

You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.
Deuteronomy 6:5 NLT

A Devotion…
Balance vs. Submission
Life for Leaders Daily Devotion

The wonderful thing about God is that he partners with us in this life to fulfill his will. He doesn’t just give orders like a taskmaster and then leave us to our own devices to juggle it all—God remains deeply engaged in every aspect of our lives, hoping that we will learn to trust him. This means checking with God on a secondly basis for the proper response to each day’s interactions. This means allowing the Holy Spirit to schedule your day, and intentionally focusing your attention on what God deems the priority for that moment. When we align with God, and truly consider all that we have to be his, then it releases us from the burden of trying to be God through self-determination. The question is not one of balance,but rather one of submission and obedience to God’s sovereignty in every second of our lives.

A prayer…
Dear God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior, I know You walk with me. You know me. You know my thoughts, hear my words, see my every expression and action. You know I sometimes let the busyness of life make fellowship with you seem elusive. I disconnect and struggle to balance my work, family, friendships, responsibilities, and most of all my relationship with you. Teach me how to stay connected and submit all things under your Lordship as I pursue to live balanced life on your terms. So everyone will see and know I am in You and You are in me. Amen.
