Today's Daily Devotional

“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.” Hebrews 13:5-6

06/12/09 God is definitely a better helper to me than I am to Him! He is more faithful. He has more integrity. He loves better. He forgives better. He forgets – Hallelujah! I need to give up more control to Him each day. I need Him to shine through my life more tomorrow than He did last week. I want to let Him be the beacon inside of me that everyone sees, but too often I don’t give up control. And when I don’t give up control, people only see me. Not Him. And I am nowhere near as beautiful as He is. Because I am a lousy helper. Compared to Him, I am selfish and irresponsible. I am vain and ignorant. But He is the wonderful, selfless, beautiful Creator and King of the Universe. I should be His helper, but I am incapable. Lord, be my helper so that You may be glorified in Christ’s name. Amen.
