Truly Make God Lord of Your Life

Daily Devotional

Luke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

We often use these words “You are Lord of my life” and it sounds good, but to what extent have we made Him Lord of our life? He is not Lord of our life simply because we say so; it takes more than that. Jesus said in Luke 6:46, “Why call ye me Lord and do not do things which I say”. This means that the standard by which God judges whether or not we have made Him Lord is to the extent that we do what he says.  That is consistent with the literal meaning of us stating that someone is Lord over us. When we refer to someone as our Lord, it means that they are our master and by being our master we are mandated to do as they say.

The two main takeaways from what Jesus said are: don’t say that He is Lord of your life if you do not really mean it and if you really mean it then do what his word says. Job made Him Lord even when he fell on tough times. After he lost all he had and sores filled his body, His wife asked him in Job 2:9-10 “dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die”. What she was asking Job was if he would continue doing what God says given his difficult circumstances. Jobs’ response was “thou speakest as one of the foolish women”. Truly making Him God of your life should never be contingent on our circumstances as He is the sovereign Lord whether our circumstances are good or bad. Circumstances do not change who He is.

It is good to verbally declare that God is Lord of your life, if you have not yet done so, go further than that by doing His words.

Life Application: Whatever it may take or regardless of the circumstances you may face, make God Lord of life by consistently doing what His word says. 

Prayer: Lord, you are the master of my life. May my words and actions truly reflect daily that you are indeed Lord of my life. In Jesus name, amen.
