Am I complacent, Lord?

“This people I have formed for Myself; They shall declare My praise.“ But you have not called upon Me, O Jacob; And you have been weary of Me, O Israel.” ~ Isaiah 43:21-22, NKJV

“So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain.” ~ Ezekiel 33:31, NKJV

“And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” ~ Hebrews 6:11-12, NKJV

Am I Complacent, Lord?

Lord, You are my everything, my all-in-all. I love to tell Your story, to be an instrument of Your peace. But somedays, all of my focus turns back on myself and I don’t want to put forth the effort to walk this journey of faith. Am I complacent, Lord? Is this how You see me?

I don’t want to be complacent.

Some days I disengage — I disconnect from this virtual world we live in. Some days I feel buried beneath my own burdens and don’t have anything left to invest in others.

Am I complacent, Lord?

Not in my heart, though. My heart loves to serve You and others.

But my body gets tired, my mind gets overwhelmed and I become self-absorbed. I’m sorry, Lord. Please forgive me. I don’t want to think more about myself than I do others. I don’t want to serve myself before I serve You.

Yet there are times I know I do.

The Conflict Between Spirit and Flesh is Real

You have made me an overcomer. You have called me to be a minister of reconciliation. You have called me to be available.

These are the desires of my heart. Strengthen me in my resolve to overcome the enemy who wants to distract and discourage me. The conflict between spirit and flesh is real — the flaming arrows of the evil one are hot and distracting.

Am I complacent, Lord?

But in You, Lord is where I live and move and have my being. In You my passion for others burns bright, my strength and resolve are strong.

Thank You for prompting me to ask the question, “Am I complacent?” Thank You for making me aware of how easily complacency can slip in without my awareness.

My Yes is On The Table

Give me Your eyes to see, Your ears to hear the pain in others’ lives. May I never grow complacent at the hands of the evil one. I want to be used by You, Lord. I want to glorify You in my life.

My yes is on the table for You, Lord. Melt me, mold me, fill me, and use me. I am Yours.

In the Name of Jesus I pray,

Amen ~ let it be so
