If we own something chances are we know more about it than anyone else. Our car, we know how it works. Our business, we know all about the best practices there. Our home, yup, we know when it makes a sound that isn't in harmony with our ears. In other words, if we own it, we are responsible for it. We know it, and we care for it.
When I asked Jesus into my life at age six, I felt a deep desire to have a relationship with God. I wanted to have Jesus as my best friend. Having since discovered my Asperger's wiring gift at age 62, I understand just how precious His love for me has been. Because of how he created me, I needed him very much to become the person I am today.
At age 16, on a youth choir trip, I confessed God's complete ownership of my life. It has been a struggle at times because I am a fixer, an organizer, a planner, a controller. If God owns me, I do not. This is actually the most freeing place in my relationship with Christ. Total submission.
There is nothing like experiencing God. When we have confessed God as Adonai, the relationship flows instead of drips. To know Jehovah revealed, we must submit to Adonai.
We don't qualify. We are not good enough. We will always have some insecurity that we try and use, but God says, I'll be with you. I've gone before you. You will not fail.
If we question God at work in our lives, then we must ask ourselves, Is God our Adonai?
If in fact, we have declared him the owner, then we have specific responsibilities.
We are all at different places in our spiritual journey. Like the flowers that he directs to bloom at different times to constantly remind us of his beauty through his creation.
Colossians 2:9-10 “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.”
