“Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?”
Romans 6:16

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.
