‘I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go’ (Isaiah 48:17). Lord, You know what’s best for us. You help us to say, ‘As for God, His way is perfect’ (Job 23:10; 2 Samuel 22:31). How do You help us to see that Your way is best? You invite us to consider Your love. We are to think about all that You have done for us – ‘the mercies of God’. You call us to dedicate our lives to You – ‘present your bodies, as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God’. Dedicating our lives You, Lord – This is ‘our ‘spiritual worship’. We are not to live for this world – ‘Do not be conformed to this world’. We are to live for You, Lord – ‘be transformed by the renewal of your mind’. ‘God’s will is good, pleasing and perfect’. May we learn this for ourselves as we learn to dedicate our lives to You (Romans 12:1-2).
