Union with Christ – Delighted in His Glory - Friday, October 18th
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore, glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones. Proverbs 3:5-8
Today's thoughts from today's verses:
Being under God’s control is no passive existence. He animates our lives to the fullest. He does not bypass anything of who we are except our sinful nature. With our will submitted to His, we stay in step with Him, our Sovereign Lord and Master. We enjoy the good things of life and embrace the tough things through faith in the One who knows better than us what is needful so that our lives are maximized and His purposes are fulfilled. What a delight and relief it is to be joined to another who alone is worthy of our love, devotion, and absolute surrender.
Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:
Lord, what a blessing it is to be joined to you, the One who knows what’s best and does what’s best. What an amazing and full life you are creating for me. Thank you for a life that is increasingly for my good and your glory because the life I am living is increasingly your doing. I love you, worship you, and praise you. Amen!
