A CONSECRATED, DEDICATED LIFE RESULT IN PEACE.

God's Word instructs us to be vessels fit that is consecrated, for the Masters use. To be consecrated us to be set apart for a special use,
2 Timothy 2:20-21 says

In a wealthy home some utensils are made of gold and silver, and some are made of wood and clay. The expensive utensils are used for special occasions, and the cheap ones are for everyday use. 21 If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work

To God, we are precious treasures. According to His great plan, we are vessels He set aside for special purpose. God wants to show His glory through us. He wants to use us to bring others to Himself. We are His representatives, His ambassadors here on earth. God is making His appeal to the world through His children. 2 Corinthians 5:20

So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!

To dedicate is to give, to offer to another, or to set aside for a purpose.

It is not too much for God to ask us to dedicate every facet of our being. It is actually our worship and spiritual services. Under old covenant law, God required animal sacrifice to atone for sin. He no longer wants dead sacrifices; He wants us offering ourselves as living sacrifice undo Him for His purpose and use.

There is nothing we can offer to God that He has not first given us, so we are only offering what already belongs to Him anyway. In reality, we are stewards, not owners.

Offer Him your mouth to speak through, your hands to touch through, your feet to walk through, your mind to think through. Dedicate every area of your life to Him, remembering that anything we give to the Lord He gives us back many times over, and we get back in much better condition than we have gave it.

God wants you to enjoy a life of peace, the peace that passes understanding, and it begins by being at peace with Him. This requires regular surrender, consecration, declaration and willingness to let God be the driver's seat of your life at all times. But beware ; you have am enemy who plans to make it difficult to surrender your life to God. So do everything to overcome at all times.

GOD BLESS YOU.
