Our Daily responsibility. This opens up our hearts to God's will and direction. It opens up our lives to be Holy and pleasing to God as an act of worship.
Giving ourselves to God is the act of totally emersing ourselves in study of his word, prayer and worship, without outside interence, such as, drifting thoughts.
Do you remember the old AM radio stations from the 50's and 60's? I do and you too, if your old enough. I remember that as I would listen, there was static always interupting the sound of music playing. If the wind blew, static would molest the sound. as FM stations started to emerge the sound of static became a thing of the past, unless you got too far away from the signal. As a sinner, I remember a song from a rock group called FM where one of the phrases said, "no static at all"
Too many times when we are spending quality time with God we emit static, we drift our thoughts to the things of our day, kids, work, dinner and bills as we pray, giving way to the things of the world instead of giving ourselves to God, completely. I can promise you that your prayers and worship will be unheard by God when we allow ourselves to drift.
I remember my brother and best friend, when he would be talking to me about something that was important for him and some of those times I would be in another world, because of problems and I would drift deeply in thought of other things. He would be droning on and I heard nothing. After a few minutes I would hear him call, "Anthony?, Hellooooooo......over here Anthony." Then I would snap back to what we were talking about. It wasn't that I was uninterested in what he was saying, but I had problems and I would drift.
God is our creator, Jesus our savior and our King, but too many times we drift and he knows when we do and our prayers and worship become empty sounds and words. We need to shut off the world, flip the off switch to our busy lives and ask forgiveness of our sinful nature and embrace Jesus, talk to him, love and worship him. I promise he will listen to your deepest thoughts, engage in conversation with you and his God given wisdom for your life. Talk to him and he will talk to you, love you and take you under his wing. His answers will help you in all situations. Read less
