His Searchlight Upon Our Hearts

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“Shall not God search this out? For He knoweth the secrets
of the heart.” Psalm 44:21

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Christian author and speaker S. D. Gordon said, “In every
man’s life there is a throne. And when self is on the throne,
Christ is on the cross. But when Christ is on the throne, self is on
the cross.”

There is something you hold to be the highest good that captivates
your attention and controls your life. Your decisions are made in
light of whatever this thing is. Is it Christ? Or something
else?

God’s plan is not that Christ have “a place” in your
life or that He have prominence in your life. Jesus Christ deserves
and even demands preeminence in your life. That means there is no
rebuttal, no refusal, and no rival.

ACTION POINT:
Ask God to reveal to you if there is anything is your life that is
controlling your decisions, apart from the Lord Jesus Christ. Give Him
permission to reveal that today.
