Have You Given God Your ALL? Are you letting Him handle the problems that come in your life? I Beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice , holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1 John Wesley said it this way! Somebody came running up to John Wesley and said, "Your house just burned down!" The great preacher replied, "I don’t have a house. I manage a house for the Lord, His house just burned down. Since I’m His son, and He wants me covered, I guess He’ll find me another place to live."That is how we are to live. As stewards, not owners. As renters, not home-owners. Have any of you ever rented a house? When a pipe breaks, whose problem is it? The Landlords. You don’t have to spend a dime of your money to fix it, because you are only renting this property—it is owned by someone else. What about if you own a house and a pipe breaks? Whose problem is it? Yours! Because the deed is in your name—you own it.What God is wanting you to do with your life, your house, your car, your children, is to sign over the deed to Him. If you let Him call the shots with your possessions, then when they break, it is His problem. Whose name is on your deed? Think about it! Are you letting God call the shots in your life and what it contains? Maybe we need to take inventory.
