LORD OF YOUR LIFE
I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Lord is one of those words used so frequently in Christian conversation that it runs the risk of being used too casually. The Greek word, kurios, can be translated "master, owner", or "authority",. However it is rendered, Lord suggests the one who is in charge, the one whose word is the final authority. If the same person who is Lord is also compassionate, loving, purposeful, and good, you have a combination that allows for total trust and contentment.
Paul had to learn this in his life:"I have learned..." (Philippians 4:12). But he didn't know it was at the moment of his conversion when Jesus said, "For I will show (Paul) how many things he must suffer for My name's sake." (Acts 9:16). Paul was sent out to suffer! And suffer he did (2 Corinthians 6, 11) But he learned to be at peace in his circumstances when he combined Lord with loving. If a loving master sent him into a difficult circumstance, Paul could be okay with that.
If you know Jesus as Lord, learn to trust His direction and plan for your life--day by day.
