He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.”
How much clearer does God need to make it for us to see that without Him there is no us?
We can work as hard as we want, we can plan out our life daily, we can dream the biggest of dreams, but without a genuine commitment to serve Him and only Him, nothing that we work, plan,and dream for will come to fruition and last without His “Hand” blessing it.
Seems simple when you say it, but yet we struggle to fully commit to this life as He sees fit.
We’re all works in progress; all of us are pieces of clay being molded slowly into the perfect examples of His spiritual likeness. Keep praying for the molding!
Father there is no life, truth, or love without You. My day can not start or end without You. Everything that I am capable of doing is because of You.
I cannot breathe, speak, see, feel, taste, move or think without Your will and grace making these things possible. My ideas are not mine, but Yours. The things I possess are only temporary gifts and loans from You. I thank You Father. In You I put my trust. Amen.
