Tonight in small group we went through 1/2 of Romans 10. The part that really got to me was verses 3:
Since they did not know the righteousness that comes from God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.
Before God broke me back in January of this year I was not submitting to God’s righteousness at all. I was not acknowledging God, I was acknowledging myself and that was it. It was the era of “Me,” and as long as things went my way I was content. God let me know that He had not forgotten about me even though I had let myself slip away from him. This reminds me of a verse that stuck out to me back in Romans 1:
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen
That is exactly what God did when I started doing as I pleased and it is exactly what I needed to land me where I am at today. It sure took quite a few years but Im here now and understand how all of the things I have went through have resulted in my current mind set. I praise God every day for what he has done in my life.
Now, God’s righteousness is extremely important to me and I submit to it daily. I lift up what few things I do correctly to glorify his name. God is so awesome and I am humbled everytime I start to think about what he pulled me up out of. He allowed me to dig myself a hole but once I was in it to deep he didn’t just throw me a rope he came in and picked me up.
