Jesus is Lord of All.
Not Lord of Some.
Lord of All.
How amazing that He comes from His throne on high to take residence within my heart! Perfect in peace, He makes me whole. Perfect in love, He drives away fear.
I have discovered recently, however, that there are some areas of my life in which I have kept the key. In sinful distrust, I stop my Lord from entering the places where I think I know best. I’ll handle this part myself. I have made Him Lord of Some.
I am making it a daily habit to be thankful.On a day when things don’t go my way, it is a challenge to be thankful. It seems like everything is a disappointment because, the truth is, I’m not really in control. When I think back through the day and see how God has blessed me, I realize that it is not the way I planned–but it is good.
“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good…” Psalm 34:8
“…those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.” Psalm 34:10
What if I release all control to my Lord? What if I decide not to plan out how to get what I want? What if I let go of what I think I need–and instead trust my Lord to sovereignly provide?
What if I truly make Him Lord of All in my life?
