Am I Surrendered? 

JANUARY 9 & 10, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Genesis 17:23 And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham’s house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

     Here is your agenda for today. Read your Bible, pray, sing a little song (even if it is only to yourself), ask someone to come to church, and cut the fatty lobe off your left ear.

     WHAT? Can you even imagine a pastor telling anyone they need to do something like that to serve God? You might say, “Everything in the list seems like legitimate ideas except cutting off part of my body.” You are probably thinking, “Well I don’t think so buddy, I will find another church somewhere else.”

     However, this is exactly what God asked Abraham to do. Even more amazing, Abraham did it. He did not wait a week or two until he had time to think it through, or to read all the studies on the medical ramifications of doing something like that. He did not delay in his obedience to the desires of God until he investigated the subject to find a great way of numbing the pain. The Bible says, when Abraham understood Gods desire, he did it the very same day. What he did was to totally and immediately surrender to the will of God. God will never ask you to do things illegal or immoral. He does however ask you to surrender your will to His will.

 

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

     At the beginning of this devotion, we mentioned prayer, reading, singing, and sharing. God’s Word tells us we are to do all those things. Are you going to wait until you figure it all out? Will you put it off for another time when you get up the nerve? Or are you going to obey God today as Abraham did? (P.S. Leave the fatty lobe of your left ear exactly where it is. It was just an illustration…)

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
