In Fear Factor I read this sentence: If your main priority in life is getting people to like you or think well of you, you won’t be able to live all out for God.
Live all out. Ever since I’ve read that phrase, I’ve been thinking about what it means to live all out for God. What I think it means is trusting Him in everything. It means to realize that He is sovereign and in control of all that is going on…..in my life, in my church, in the world. He does everything for His glory and our good and I can rest in that. I can rest in the knowledge that nothing is out of His control. Stock market plunging, economies failing……all this has been planned by a loving Father for His glory and my good. How does it work for His glory? I don’t know. How does it work for my good? I don’t know. I do know that He is faithful. I do know that He wants the best for me. I do know that I can trust Him and I can go to Him with any fear, anxiety or trouble and He will be there–ready to listen, always able to understand. I do know that I can go to His Word and find words of encouragement there. I can find comfort there. I do know that “His divine power has given us everything we (I) need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us byHis own glory and goodness.” (2 Peter 1:3)
In these days, and every day, I want to Live All Out for the Lord by trusting Him, obeying Him, loving Him, following Him. Will you join me on that path?
