Acts 17:26-27 – ““The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’”
You’ve heard the phrase “looking for love in all the wrong places”. I find that this saying is true. Sometimes we are so consumed in our daily lives and circumstances that material things become our focus. We begin to depend on people and stuff (cars, houses, clothes, money, etc.) to make us happy and to fill the voids in our lives, so we begin to idolize these things unknowingly.
This passage confirms that God is Alpha and Omega, He is the author and finisher of all things. Take a moment to reflect on the circumstances that have moved you to a place to allow things and people in your life to become your god. Now take a moment to turn those situations over to God and trust that in Him, all things are possible. Though the situation may look bleak to you, remember that He is with you always carrying you through and that it in Him you will find your resolve. He is the answer to all your needs and desires. Without Him, you have nothing and you are nothing.
Prayer starter: My Father who are in heaven, hollowed be thy name, your will be done in my life, not my will. Please forgive me for allowing material things and people to take your place as gods in my life. I surrender all that I am and every circumstance in my life to you. I recognize that you are Alpha and Omega and that there is no one or nothing higher than you…
