Sovereign-Thursday Thought

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
    be acceptable in your sight,
    Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

Psalm 19:14 esv



Is Jesus Christ your Lord? When we accept His sacrifice on the Cross He becomes our Savior, but is He your Lord? Lord means, ‘one having power or authority over others.’ With that in mind we know that Christ is Master and Ruler of all. So then the question becomes, "Do YOU recognize Christ as Lord of your entire life?"

We refer to Him as ‘The Lord’ when conversing with others or even in our prayers. But we know that actions always speak louder than words.  At the end of Psalm 139 the psalmist asked God to search his heart and expose the impurities (vv. 23-24). Ask the Holy Spirit to show you what areas of your life are not submitted to Him. You cannot have a real relationship with God until you are real with yourself. Do you recognize Jesus as Lord?
