Aren’t you glad that you can do as you please; make plans as you feel; go where you want and say what’s on you mind? After all, it’s your life! No one should be able to tell you what to do. It’s your life and you have to live it. As long as you are not asking anyone for anything; as long as you aren’t bothering anyone else… it is your life, and you can do as you please.
As long as you are minding your business and taking care of your own affairs; dealing with your own issues, why wouldn’t you live your life as you choose? It’s your life!
Because, “Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.” (Psalm 100:3 NKJV)
The Bible says that God made us; we did not make ourselves. We belong to Him; we are His sheep, and that makes Him our Shepherd. We are to do what He says to do….after all He brought us into this world and He can take us out!
God created you special; for a special purpose and with a special plan. When we decide to do our own thing, we miss our real purpose for being here. When we decide to live our lives our own way, we are deciding to live separate from God. If we live separate from God, then we are unsaved and much like Adam and Eve. They had a choice to do what God said; being spiritually alive and blessed; or they could do their own thing and live apart from God, spiritually dead. They chose to be independent of God and they ruined everything.
What about you? Have you realized that your life is not yours to mess up? Your life is His and He has great things planned for you, if you want it. Do you trust your Creator with your life? Do you believe that He knows what’s best for you? Do you believe that He has your best interest at heart? Do you know that He can do more with you than you can do with yourself? Do you want the assurance that when things look dim, that God will pull you out? Then you have do give your life to Him totally…that’s what salvation is all about.
This is your life….But your life belongs to Him. Give it up, so you can get what He has for you.
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (I Corinthians 6:19-20)
Love somebody today who doesn’t love you; doesn’t care about you; won’t repay you, can’t repay you and doesn’t want to repay you…then you will be treating them the way God treated you…
