They were Yours, You gave them to Me . . . John 17:6

“You are not your own” 1 Corinthians 6:19

This is going to be short...because today's devotional is fairly straightforward.  Do you realize to whom you belong to?  You belong to Jesus...therefore listen to Him.  Do what He wants you to do.  Go where He wants you to go.  Obey Him.  Follow Him.  Seek His will for you.  Consult Him.  Give up your will for His will.  You are not free to do your own thing. 

To say, “I am not my own,” is to have reached a high point in my spiritual stature. The true nature of that life in actual everyday confusion is evidenced by the deliberate giving up of myself to another Person through a sovereign decision, and that Person is Jesus Christ.

  1. Love the photo! :)

    I want so much to be my own, and yet so much to be His. It is a constant battle and I am only miserable when I resist His voice.
