BIG IDEAGod’s power is so great that mountains melt like wax before him.

KEY VERSEPsalm 97:10
You who love the Lord, hate evil! He protects the lives of his godly people and rescues them from the power of the wicked.

Don’t lost sight of who I am or ignore my power. My presence illuminates the world and mountains bow before me. Those who reject me are consumed and those who put their trust in idols are shamed. Still, I invite all to turn to me. I will respond to anyone who invites me to lead their life. Now is the perfect time to surrender. Give up control and allow me to lead you.

By surrendering to me, you are not giving up on life. Instead, you are freeing yourself from the false notion that you can live an effective, independent life. You may appear to live successfully on your own for a season, but you cannot do so for eternity. Don’t wait to start a relationship with me. Begin today. You will find  joy. You will find peace. You will find freedom and hope and love. You will find everything and more than you hoped for or imagined. And I will protect you and deliver you from your enemies.

Humble yourself before God. Is there a sin or unhealthy habit you’ve been ignoring? Ask God for help and thank him for his power to help you overcome temptation.
