RENEWAL Devotional: Living For Christ
Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for RENEWAL at Brookhaven Hospital
Living for Christ means putting Christ at the center of your life. When you make decisions, do you ask Christ to be in the midst of it? Not many do. Many of us make plans, forgetting to put Christ in the center of it. Later, when things go awry, we may wonder why our plan doesn’t work out. It could simply mean that you neglected to have that conversation with God.
God will show us the direction we need to go in life. Scripture says, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” Psalm 37:23
When you trust God with your life, by living for Him, He will order your steps. You will be at peace with your decisions.
You are very special to God. Your are so valuable to Him that scripture says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Live for Christ today and have that conversation with Him today about your life, your family and the dreams you have for your life.
