Funny the assumptions we make when a question is proposed. Not only in our writings or spoken word, but in our day-to-day lives. Obedience is a funny thing, we seek to obey Christ and we claim surrender, yet do we truly surrender? Does it matter our outcome, is it not about His purpose?
We want to try our best to live for Him. Sadly, we're humbled, and aware how daily we keep the focus on self and not on Christ. we are human and fall prey to the affirmation of glory, forgetting, we are not worthy!
We battle in a vain world, were negatives surround, and we seek affirmation. We are trained to do so from a young age, or we see media making it all about what is trending in the social norm. If only we could silence the horns being blown by self and others. If we could stay in the quiet peace, of living a life that glorifies Christ. How wonderful would it be, if our daily bread was so light and fragrant that all would see Christ in us, barely recognizing the vessel from whence the food came.
If we want to feed the world with His Holy and most precious food, we should also want and need our actions to be bolder for the glorification of God. We must surrender ego, greed, even desire allowing Christ to use us for His good.
We pray to be used, but we place limits on how we will be used. We do this often unknowingly and it's only in reflection that we see ourselves succumb to the flagrancy of this world.
We seek accountability yet shy away from a His countenance. We seek His likeness, yet fear the boldness required to be like Christ.
If His light is hidden within us, we need to pray, to seek beneath the rubble that has captured our hearts. We need some serious search and rescue before too many are lost. Our God is all powerful, His love is pure, we need to seek to dispense the purity of His love, unconditionally, and always seek to be better at releasing the control we think we have.
He is in control, never doubt what He places on your heart <3
