How Much Of You Does God Own?

Since He created every part of you, He is entitled to every part, every molecule, every drop of blood, every muscle, all of your time, every thought, all of your love and every choice you make. He leaves nothing involving you to chance. He gives you the ability to choose to give yourself to Him or not. Once you give yourself to Him He gives you thousands if not millions of opportunities to give every little thing to Him.

Don*t think He cares about you and the little details of your life? Think again.

Psalms 139:2: Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

2 Corinthians 10:5: Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Joshua 1:3: Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

Job 23:14: For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with him.

Ephesians 2:10: For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Matthew 10:30: But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Psalms 37:23: The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

Oswald Chambers on Romans 8:28: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

The circumstances of a saint*s life are ordained of God. In the life of a saint there is no such thing as chance. God by His providence brings you into circumstances that you cannot understand at all, but the Spirit of God understands. God is bringing you into places and among people and into conditions in order that the intercession of the Spirit in you may take a particular line. Never put your hand in front of the circumstances and say . . . I am going to be my own providence here, I must watch this, and guard that. All your circumstances are in the hand of God, therefore never think it strange concerning the circumstances you are in. Your part in intercessory prayer is not to enter into the agony of intercession, but to utilize the common-sense circumstances God puts you in, and the common-sense people He puts you amongst by His providence, to bring them before God*s throne and give the Spirit in you a chance to intercede for them. . . . Am I making the Holy Spirit*s work difficult by being indefinite, or by trying to do His work for Him? I must do the human side of intercession, and the human side is the circumstances I am in and the people I am in contact with. I have to keep my conscious life as a shrine of the Holy Ghost, then as I bring the different ones before God, the Holy Spirit makes intercession for them.

Your intercessions can never be mine, and my intercessions can never be yours, but the Holy Ghost makes intercession in our particular lives, without which intercession someone will be impoverished.
