DEVOTION: “Never live in a place that is less than where God has called you to, and He has called you up on high to live with Him. God has designed that everything will be subject to man. Through Christ He has given you power over the power of the enemy. (Luke 10:19). He has worked out your eternal redemption. (pg 116)
So. On reading this the first time I wanted to dig into the “never live in a place where God has not called you to.”
Ultimately, God has called us to live on high with Him in heaven but while we’re here on Earth, where are you living? How are you living? Are you living where God wants you to be? Let me re-phrase that, are you living the life that God wants you to live?
Let me ask that again because that is a VERY hard question to answer. Are you living the life that God wants you to live?
So, once again, time to take an audit of your life. Your actions. Your relationships. Your time.
Maybe you’re about to delete this post because this is getting too personal but we need to do this. We need to stop and look at our surroundings, our decisions, our relationships, our time. God has called us to this incredible life with Him. How much time are you spending with Him in this incredible life? Does your life seem incredible?
I know. This devotion is mainly comprised of questions but…these are questions that need to be asked.
Our God calls us to Him. Calls us to live with Him in this life. Are you doing that?
Quick comment on that. Maybe the question back to me is how can I do that? Good one.
Our relationship with God is just that. A relationship. It’s not a one way street where we just ask God for stuff and He provides. We need to have an ongoing conversation. A real back and forth with Him. Spending time in His Word to realize and understand who He is. Who this Spirit is that inside of us? Guiding our steps and our path.
Today. Maybe you’re having trouble answering a few questions. Maybe you’re having a tough time understanding why it’s important. I get it.
Maybe today’s the day to start answering. Maybe today is the day to start really digging into where you’re at. Digging into where God wants you to be.
PRAYER: God, today I pray for direction. For guidance. For a deeper relationship with you. Let your Spirit in me guide me and lead me.
