From Oswald Chambers:
Our Lord never insists on having authority over us. He never says, "You will submit to me." No, He leaves us perfectly free to choose— so free, in fact, that we can spit in His face or we can put Him to death, as others have done; and yet He will never say a word. But once His life has been created in me through His redemption, I instantly recognize His right to absolute authority over me. It is a complete and effective domination, in which I acknowledge that "You are worthy, O Lord . . ." ( Revelation 4:11 ). It is simply the unworthiness within me that refuses to bow down or to submit to one who is worthy.
When you pray, do you grant God the authority over your life, or do you ask Him to help you with your agenda? We are unworthy -- our prayers, even our prayers for GBC, are best when they we attempt to tap into God's agenda. Grant Him authority in your prayers today.
