First Place Affections

00:00

Description

Sometimes the deals we try to make with God reveal what has first place of our affections.

Have you every tried to make a deal with God?

Thirty years ago, my Dad was getting ready to graduate from seminary. My parents were thinking and praying about what God might want them to do after graduation.

Mom said that one afternoon during her prayer time, she was telling the Lord that she would follow Him anywhere, even the mission field, once her parents were gone. She said she remembers God's gentile reminder, "Be careful Bonnie. I can make that happen."

Sometimes the deals we try to make with God reveal what has first place of our affections. Mom said in that instance she realized that God had the right to ask anything of her. And in that moment, she said, "yes," turner her and her aging parents' futures to His capable hands.
