The Prayer of Consecration (Last Tuesday‘s Devotional)

In the prayer of consecration, we dedicate our lives and all that we are to Him. In order for God to use us, we must consecrate ourselves to Him.

When we truly consecrate ourselves to the Lord, we lose the burden of trying to run our own lives. I would rather voluntarily follow God than struggle to get Him to follow me. He knows where He is going, and I know I will reach my destination safely if I allow Him to lead.

I consecrate myself to God in prayer on a regular basis. I say, “Here I am, Lord. I am Yours; do with me as You please.” Then sometimes I add, “I hope I like what You choose, Lord, but if I don’t, Your will be done and not mine.”

Consecration and/or dedication to God is the most important aspect of succeeding at being ourselves. We don’t even know what we are supposed to be, let alone know how to become whatever it is. But as we regularly keep our lives on the altar in consecration to God, He will do the work that needs to be done in us, so He may do the work He desires to do through us.

The prayer for Tuesday’s devotional is:

Lord, I gladly consecrate myself – body, soul and spirit – to You today. Take my life, shape my life, and use my life for Your glory. Amen.

Scripture: Isaiah 6:8

8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

Remember ladies, follow God’s plan for your life. I know that sometimes we like to do things our own way and we might believe that we have it all figured out, but anything God has planned for us is one million times better than ANYTHING we could possibly have planned for our own lives. He knows exactly what he is doing and He already has everything all figured out. Trust Him — He’ll won’t lead you astray. He will never leave you nor forsake you. ♥
