Today Reminder – 13 June 2016

 A reminder for today
Oh, how great are God's riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! For who can know the LORD's thoughts? Who knows enough to give him advice?
And who has given him so much that he needs to pay it back? For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen. (Romans 11:33-36)

I love these verses. It continuously reminds me of my very small existence compared to the majesty of our Lord. You see we tend to forget so easily how much God does for us. We do not realise that all is from Him and for Him and we become trapped in a world where the tendency is to live for yourself and uplift yourself. We live in a world where people love attention and they love to be honoured for the things they do. The world does not follow God as we do. You see we realise that nothing is from us and nothing we can ever do is so great that God must feel He needs to pay us back. Who can comprehend the enormousness of the wonder of our God and yet we feel we should give Him advice and tell Him what to do.

The minute you realise how small you are compared to Him you can understand the absurdity of thinking you can advise Him. My friend all is from God and all is for God. We must remember to live thanking God and reminding ourselves of what God does in our lives. We must then turn form our wicked and wrong ways and live in way that we can bring glory to God. Everything exists by His power and yet we remain arrogant in our plans and ideas as we just push God to the side and continue with our lives.

So today we must bring honour and glory to God by living more for Him than against Him.

Lord, I give you my heart and I give you my soul. Let your will be done and let your kingdom come. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
