Who/what are you calling Lord?

You can serve God and still call something Lord. Let me break it down for you. You see, we recognize God as a source for what we need and sometimes, we don’t recognize the fullness of who He actually is.

You see, David was a king or lord over people. Though he ruled over people, those people ultimately still obeyed God. They listened to David because he lead them (like a shepherd), but God was still Lord of all despite David’s position.

So, we too can serve or make something our “Lord” and allow that to take the place of God.

We do that when we place more trust in the things around us we feel can save us, instead of trusting God. God is God of all and everything as well as Lord of all and everything.

Shifting our focus from a problem is one thing but what are we then looking at? You can look at all of the possible outlets, or you can look to God and trust that HE will bring forth your deliverance from the place He chooses.

That is Faith in action. Learning to rest in God is sometimes the only action we need. Here’s a reminder to you: God has this in control.

We all have to carry our cross at some point in life. In fact, maybe multiple times. Here’s the lesson: You must trust God. When He speaks, trust. Where He leads, trust. When He says go, Go! Believe that He is not only God the sovereign one, but also LORD.

Listen. Trust. Have Faith.

When it’s most unbearable, that’s when He’ll step in. Carry your cross—-(whatever situation is at hand), and know that it’ll will be over after this. But you must endure. Remember what Jesus said in the Garden of Gethsemane before the moment He had to bear His cross:


Matthew 26:38 “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death. Remain here and watch with Me.”

Matthew 26:41 “Watch and pray, that you do not enter into temptation.”


Watch and Pray. Pray that you keep the faith, until the very end. It’s a moment not only for you, but to show those around you what God will do.

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing the word of God. Faith comes by taking in the word of God. It must be a daily resource you run to.

Deuteronomy 8:3- “He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna…to teach you that man shall not live on bread alone but on every word that comes out of the mouth of the Lord.”


Kirk Franklin says it like this: “Right before I live I have to Die.” -Song (Before I Die)

It’s not punishment, it was “re-direction”. God is leading you into a place where you fully Trust In Him.


Stay blessed,
