For it is written, “AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL GIVE PRAISE TO GOD.”
I was reading the passage that goes with this verse. It is a passage I was led to while I was reading a devotional. The passage states that we live for God, because He died for us. We need to acknowledge our place…let go of the pride, let go of the compass we hold in our hands for our own self-directed paths.
When I get anxious, I do not forget about the Lord, but how often do I acknowledge His power? He has that power for a reason: to bless us, but most importantly, to remind us that no matter what, He is Lord over EVERYTHING–all of the politicians, the bosses, the family members, the world leaders. . .all of it.
Sadly, even though the average person might acknowledge that God exists, God isn’t necessarily real to him or her. There is so much to see and know about Christ…we need to allow Him to be first in everything. Obviously, in our humanness, this is easier said than done, but baby steps forward are better than completely falling backward into nothingness.
