A big day for a small man

Over the last few weeks I have come to realise a couple of hard truths about myself.

I am a small man. I have accomplished small things. Lived a small, largely meaningless life.

I am not saved. Yes, I have made a decision to become a born again Christian when I started this blog. But I did not make Jesus the Lord of my life. I did not make Him master of every area of my life. I looked at Him, but did not follow Him. I used salvation as my safety net. I just checked the box. I did not understand the cost thereof. The price I have to pay.

Today is a big day for me. Today I will choose again. I am scared. Scared that I may fail again…I have no choice though. I am tired of being a small man. Tired of searching. Of not being at peace. Of failure. And I know I am destined for great things. All of us are. We were created in God’s image. And He is not a small God. And I know that my only hope of becoming a great man is to become God’s man. Because I know now I will never become a great man if I do not hand Him the steering wheel. I do need to stay in the car though to enjoy the ride. And that will take commitment. Discipline. Tough things for me to do. But I have an expectancy. An expectancy that if I die today – truly crucify my own, selfish and sinful nature – He will rise with me, in me. I have an expectancy that I will be filled with the Holy Spirit today. That His mighty power will become visible in me. That He will guide me. That it would be easier for me seek Him, diligently. That I would truly experience His love. His love for me. And that I would love Him back.

Today a small man will die. I pray that a big man will take his place.

Praise the Lord!

“Praise the Lord, all you nations.

Praise him, all you people of the earth.

For he loves us with unfailing love:

the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever.

Praise the Lord!”

Psalm 117:1-2
