When I make selfish choices, it doesn’t take long before I realize something is wrong. I lose my conscious awareness of the Lord’s presence and begin to feel secluded from Him. I was not created to be isolated. When my ego overpowers my thoughts and distracts me from the fellowship I delight in with Him, my disregard of abiding in His presence results in my loss of peace and joy.
I confess that I am absolutely dependent on Him for everything. The air I breathe, the space I occupy and the time I have on this plane of existence is because of His grace.
No project I am doing, no goal I am pursuing or event I am planning is of any worth unless He is initiating it.
I pray that the Lord will help me to continually maintain an attitude of complete surrender to Him and His purpose for my life.
