Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11
Where am I going? A question that repeatedly haunts every single person on earth. If it were merely an inquiry that involves simple geography, it would have been very easy. But what if it were more than that? When it becomes a question of life’s direction, we are suddenly caught off guard, feeling lost in the jungle of options and possibilities. Where am I going?
Yet, an apparent reality seems to address this challenge of ours. We just need to look around and the world spoon-feeds us with fads and trends we can follow. Why not? All we have to do is to choose what’s in for most people and immediately the problem of a direction-less life is solved.
However, months or even weeks later, reality sets in – the fad fades, the trend trampled by a new one. So here comes another invitation to walk on a new direction, to follow the crowd. And the cycle goes on and on. And we let ourselves be swayed by this, solely because we want to prove to the world that everything in our life is in control.
Is this how we must really live? With all the ideas that try to dominate our perspective in life, how do we reach the right decision? In such moments of searching for direction, the Word of God speaks to our hearts: JESUS CHRIST IS LORD.
The real Lord who leads us in the right path towards experiencing life in its fullness. He is the One who gives meaning to our existence and carries us as we march through our hills and valleys. And this makes following Him as our Lord the best decision we can ever make. For He is neither a fad nor a trend that eventually vanishes into thin air.
Every knee should bow… In total surrender, we see no reason to doubt His sovereign knowledge and loving plans for every aspect of our life.
Every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord… Publicly, we declare that we fully entrust our entire being to Him and Him alone.
Hence, in the midst of all options that the world offers, may we wholeheartedly choose to let Him reign over our life and bravely affirm that Jesus Christ is our Lord!
