Your Word for This Day: “This Life is Mine”

Friday, July 28, 2017 

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

You wear what you want.  You go where you want.  You eat what you want.  As much as possible, you make all the decisions concerning your life.

Many times, when we feel like we are being controlled, we begin to complain, murmur and even rebel! We don’t want people telling us what to do and how to do it.

But, the truth of it is this… we all have to make choices concerning our own life, but really and truly the life that we live is not our own.  It is the life that God lent us to live.  He is the One who gave that life to us.

Today, remind yourself, that the life you are enjoying or even complaining about is His life, not yours. God’s breath is in your body and it is He that keeps us alive.

Trust Him today to help you live the kind of life that He wants you to live.  After all, if it is His He knows all about it and is well able to help you to live it.
