Give God the Run of the House
Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way. Col 3:15-17 MSG
There is a rhythm to life that is available to those that choose to utilize it. It helps you stay in tune with people and bring harmony to situations. It also allows you the ability to "cultivate" thankfulness which means that being thankful becomes a lifestyle for you.
So what's the key? How do I stay in step and remain thankful? By letting the Word of God, the Bible, have the run of the house. I read it, a pray about the things it instructs me to do and it breeds good ole fashioned common sense for me and those connected to me. I do what I do for the Lord and not for people or their approval. And ultimately that ushers in more peace and better direction.
So today, download a Bible or dust off the one in your library and let it begin to speak to your heart and fill you with faith. You will love the difference when you give God the run of the house!
