Lord Of Our Lives
Those are the first words of a prayer by Peter Marshall. They stopped me in my tracks. Can I truthfully call Him that? Can you? Do I remember the last time I consulted Him about some decision in my life before I decided? Do you? How often do I make a decision without consulting Him? How often do you? How can I call Him the Lord of my life if I don*t seek His guidance? How can you? How often am I presumptuous? How often are you? How can I expect an answer to my prayers when I have not sought His guidance? How can you? How can I expect an answer to my prayers when He has not been the Lord of my prayers? How can you? How can I have what I want if He has not been the Lord of my desires for long hours or days? When was the last time I remembered my need for Him? How often and how long is He not the Lord of my life? These questions bring tears to my eyes. How about you?
