40 days of truth: day 12

my life isn’t mine

“You are not your own, for you were bought at a price.”

1 Corinthians 6:19

“I gave my life to Christ” is part of our testimony. They are the words that we use to try to describe what happened when we first believed.

But it isn’t always how I’ve lived after I first believed.

I have laid claim to my life far too often. Made demands that weren’t mine to make.

Lived as though I’m the one who makes me draw breath.

I’ve made decisions and plans expecting, or at least hoping, that God’s big plan lined up with all my little plans.

Instead of bowing to the truth that every plan is His to make, not mine.

Every step I take is His to determine, not mine.

I know, Lord, that a man’s way of life is not his own;
no one who walks determines his own steps.

Jeremiah 10:23

So I declare truth to help me live truth.

My life isn’t mine.

It belongs to the One who saved it.
