Our God wants to turn our lives upside down.
When we realize, and choose to live in the truth, that the LORD really is our life – our Creator, our Savior and the Lover of our souls – we will want the LORD to fully lead our life, sharpen our focus, deepen our passion, give us our purpose and guard our peace!
Oh! But to live in the truth that our Lord Jesus Christ truly is our life will mean that our lives will be turned upside down. We will need to let go of life as we’ve known it. We will need to hold onto all things loosely except for The One who holds us tightly by His eternal love.
One of the very first things we will need to let go of is the perceived sense of control we have over our lives. It’s a LFTPOH – a Lie From The Pit of Hell! The sooner and more fully we grasp that God alone is in control over our lives, over all lives, and over the grand scheme of all eternity, the sooner and more fully we will be set free to live our lives as they were meant to be lived – in a powerful, purposeful and eternally significant way!
Whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for Me will find it. – Matthew 16:25
…For the LORD is your life… – Deuteronomy 30:20
Our God wants to turn our lives upside down. Well, actually, our God wants to turn our lives upside right! And that’s a very good thing! Will you let Him turn yours?
