He made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment - to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ. -- Ephesians 1:9-10 Oh Precious Father, I know my heart can be deceitful. At times I can even fool myself. But when I kneel in Your presence and am convicted by Your Word, I find myself reminded of those areas I have not yet fully submitted to Your control and Jesus' Lordship. Please, dear Father, use the Holy Spirit to gently show and convict of my self-deception so that I may be wholly lost in Your will. In the name of Jesus, Lord of Lords, I pray. Amen.
