Psalm 116:12 (NKJV) 12 What shall I render to the Lord for all His benefits toward me?
What has the Lord done for you? If you’re like me there are not enough hours in the day or days in the year to describe how good God has been. Doesn’t matter if I’m up or down – He is still good to me. But the question begs to be asked…since He has been so good to me, what can I do for Him?
To be very honest, when I ask myself that, it can make me very nervous. I understand that I can never repay Jesus for all He has done. I know that His sacrifice on the cross was a gift to the world. Yet, I also know that to live my best life in Him, I’m going to get very uncomfortable at times. Why? Because He is going to stretch me, mold me and grow me in ways I never thought possible. I won’t be ‘unequipped’, but He is going to ask me to do things I would never in a million years attempt on my own. Because of that what I need to ‘render’ to Jesus is my will to do all He needs to do through me. Is it easy – NO! But as time goes by I can, with all that is within me, say it is the most remarkable adventure a person could ever have. The adventure of living a full life in and with Jesus Christ!
My prayer is that I not forget all the benefits my God has given to me…that I render my will to Him each and every day so I can grow as He wants me too…that I can be a testimony to others of the wonderful adventure to be found in living for Him. How about you?
