Although He is The Rock of Ages, and although He never changes, He does not do things the way we expect.
Soldier of The Cross, is it beautiful to you to be dead to the world and alive unto Christ?
What about Romans 12, and agreeing with God to be a Living Sacrifice?
You can't have it both ways. You are either a Soldier of The Cross and are submitting to the surgical knife of the Lover of Your Soul, or you are desperate for predictability and for things to go as you think they should.
No Living Sacrifice has a fit of pique while lying on the alter.
No Living Sacrifice is going to make demands to the Lord.
No Living Sacrifice is going to have a tight fist around a list of issues that must be resolved now.
So, are you yours or are you His?
Tell Him today. Aloud.
