Oswald Chambers writes today that there is just one thing we truly can dedicate to God and I think I agree with him. Paul mentions it in Romans 12:1. It's the one thing we have a right to -- we can say we dedicate this or that or whatnot but all that belongs to God already and any dedication we do is tied up with the one Chambers write about.
When we do this we no longer complain about our situations. We know that God is in charge of them. We know that God will get us through them. We know that God will provide. We know that God has got this.
Giving up your right to yourself is a scary thought but it is a choice full of joy and freedom and incredible delight. Only you can make this decision for yourself. And only you will truly know if you have or not. It happens within you, the deepest part of you that only God can see.
