My All in All

31 Oct

 

Last night at church, we sang My All in All…..

If you are in love with Jesus,  you cannot listen to the lyrics and NOT want to praise Him.  I began to reflect what He means to me.  And since I’m a list lover, I made a list.  Jesus is:

♥  Courage amidst the deepest fear.

♥  Strength in weakness.

♥  Hope found in times of despair.

♥  Refuge in the storms of life.

♥  Comforter and Healer to my breaking heart.

♥  Protector in the worst of Satan’s attacks.

♥  Caretaker of my heart.

♥  The sacrifice made in my place for my sin.

♥  The source of joy and contentment.

♥  My savior from the darkness of sin in my life.

♥  Light for my path.  The ultimate guide in life.

♥ Peace amidst the turmoil and pain.

♥  Everlasting.  He never tires.  He never leaves.  He is ALWAYS there.

I could go on and on with this list.  The point is, He truly is my all in all.  But, the fact remains that I am human.  There have been times in my life, that I have felt far from God.  I was not experiencing the true meaning of what God is.  I felt disconnected.  The trials of life distracted me.  I wondered why I did not feel as close to God.  Had he left me when I needed Him most?  The sad fact was that I had pulled away from God.  As powerful as God is, he is not pushy.  Sure, He could force you on your face before Him.  But instead, he gives you a choice.  You have to come to Him.  He will not force you into a relationship with Him.

In the words of my loving pastor, “The question is not do we have all of God?  It’s does God have all of us?”

Have you given Him your all?  Have you surrendered your life to Him?  Are you devoted to Him?  Do you seek Him each day in all things?  Do you walk in His presence continually?   Is He your All in All?

Seek the LORD and his strength;  seek his presence continually!

1 Chronicles 16:11

Today, spend some time reflecting on what God truly means to you.  Reflect on the sacrifice Jesus made out of love for YOU.  He is the ultimate treasure in life.  He is worthy.  In Him, you will find…..peace, love, gentleness, patience, hope, faith, strength, courage, kindness, forgiveness, joy, contentment, refuge…..forever and always.

Make Him your all in all.  You won’t be sorry.
