The Benefits of Making Jesus "Lord"

May 04, 2014

“No one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.” 1Co 12:3 NKJV

Making Jesus “Lord” of your life means that He must have the first and last word in all things that concern you. It means you are called to walk with Him, to prove yourself valuable to Him, to please Him and do what He wants, when He wants it, and in the way He wants it done. Here are three great benefits that come from putting Jesus behind the wheel and making Him “Lord.” (1) When you don’t know what to say, He will tell you. “The Sovereign Lord has given me his words of wisdom, so that I may know how to comfort the weary. Morning by morning he wakens me and opens my understanding to his will. The Sovereign Lord has spoken to me, and I have listened. I have not rebelled or turned away” (Isa 50:4-5 NLT). (2) When you can’t defend yourself, He will fight for you. “The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? When evil people come to devour me…they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident” (Ps 27:1-3 NLT). (3) When the burden feels too heavy, He will carry it for you. “Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall” (Ps 55:22 NLT). And these three benefits are yours when you make Jesus “Lord” over every area of your life.
