O Lord, our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us, but your name alone do we honor. - Isaiah 26:13
What lord is ruling over you today? Are you a shopaholic, hiding your purchases so your husband won't see? Are you wearing the "I've-got-it-all-together" mask in front of others, when really you struggle each day simply to get dressed? Are you always aware of what new gadgets your neighbors have, so you rush out and get one too to keep up? Do you brag about your child's good grades in an attempt to draw attention away from their rotten behavior?
There are so many things in this world that can rule over us. But we can choose to break free and not let them.
If you are in a place right now where something is taking precedence over God in your life, then I ask you to go to your Heavenly Father and ask forgiveness, and ask Him to help you break free. He doesn't want any of us to live that way, subject to our worries, finances, and situations. He wants each and every one of us to let Him take control. To be our lord.
And precious one, that means you, too.
I don't know who this post was meant for, but I know that when I read this verse this morning I needed to share it with you. Don't let this opportunity slip away. If this post speaks to your heart, please talk to God about it, and don't wait. He wants to be the only Lord in your life.
I'm praying for you, whoever you are!!
