When God is Lord

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance. Psalm 33:12

On the back of our currency is the truth statement our nation has declared. “In God we trust.” What a powerful declaration to proclaim to a nation over the competing god. It’s ironic that this statement can be found on the often-sought-after god who continually challenges our faithfulness to the Lord.

There are many other gods which can come alongside us demanding our attention. But when a nation surrenders to His Lordship, the country is blessed, and when we individually seek God as Lord in our life, we become content and fulfillment of fruit.

Having God as Lord means we have laid down ourselves and surrendered to His truth as we have allowed His ways to become ours. We have stopped fighting the will of the flesh and submitted to God’s ways. He now has His way in our life, and we continue to say yes Lord.

Have Thine own way Lord
Have Thine own way
Thou art the potter I am the clay
Mold me and make me after Thy will
While I am waiting yielded and still

Have Thine own way Lord
Have Thine own way
Search me and try me Master today
Whiter than snow Lord wash me just now
As in Thy presence humbly I bow

Pollard Stebbins

Sometimes we don’t always get what we want when we want it, and this challenges our surrender. But when we finally come into agreement with knowing God’s ways are higher, we find peace. Allow those resistant areas in your life to be a place of peace as you submit.
