Today’s thought — Yield

Good Morning,

Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Romans 6:13, 16

God can do nothing with us if we do not yield. We recall a day of sightseeing in the palace of Genoa. We entered a room seemingly empty; bare wall, floors, and tables greeted us. Presently the guide led us across the room to the wall at the farther side. There we espied a niche in the wall. It was covered with a glass case. Behind the case was a magnificent violin, in perfect preservation–Pagamini’s favorite violin; the rich old Cremona upon which he loved most of all to display his marvelous skill. We gazed intently upon the superb instrument, with its warm rich tints, sinuous curves, and perfect model. And then we tried to imagine the wondrous strains the touch of the great master would bring forth if he were there in that quiet palace chamber. . .

Nay,, but this could not be! He could not possibly do so! For it was locked up against him! It gave the master no chance.
It is not how much do you have, but how much of yours does God have.
Present your members as instruments to God.To present means “to place near the hand of one.” Yielded, readable, usable–this gives God a chance.

Make it a real transaction!

God-yielded wills find the God planned life. James H. McConkey

Trust God for your day, ….Today
With my prayers; desiring yours,  Leslie
