Hello Brethren. Thanks for allowing me time off to reflect on the direction that I felt the LORD taking these devotionals. I thank those of you who have been praying for me, my family and the word of GOD as part of the devotionals. His word is Life, and I am here to speak Life. I pray you enjoy the following.

   “When the Galilean boy brought his bread to the Lord, what did the Lord do with it? He broke it. God will always break what is offered to him. He breaks what he takes, but after breaking it he blesses and uses it to meet the needs of others. After you give yourself to the Lord, he begins to break what was offered to him. Everything seems to go wrong, and you protest and find fault with the ways of God. But to stay there is to be no more than a broken vessel – no good for the world because you have gone too far from the world to use you, and no good for God either because you have not gone far enough for him to use you. You are out of gear with the world, and you have a controversy with God. This is the tragedy of many a Christian.”

   “My giving of myself to the Lord must be an initial fundamental act. Then, day by day, I must go on giving to him, not finding fault with his use of me, but accepting with praise even what the flesh finds hard. That way lays true enrichment.”

   “I am the Lord’s and now no longer reckon myself to be my own, but acknowledge in everything his ownership and authority. That is the attitude God delights in, and to maintain it is true consecration. I do not consecrate myself to be a missionary or a preacher; I consecrate myself to God to do his will where I am, be it in school, office or kitchen or wherever he may, in his wisdom, send me. Whatever he ordains for me is sure to be the very best, for nothing but good can come to those who are wholly his.” 

   “May we always be possessed by the consciousness that we are not our own.”  

-Watchman Nee
