S – “Jesus answered him, ‘You would have no authority over me at all unless it had been given you from above. Therefore, he who delivered me over to you has the greater sin.’”
O – This verse is another reminder of the sovereignty of God. He has all power, all knowledge, all authority. There is no one over Him. No one who makes decisions unless He allows them to do so. He has authority over all powers, over all that exists.
A/P – The LORD God has authority over my life. I belong to Him. Jesus is my Lord and Savior. Nothing comes into my life unless He allows it. I acknowledge His authority over all that I am. Help me Father to walk in submission and humility, help me to not resist you. I want to yield my heart and soul. I want to walk open to you will, whatever it is, whatever it looks like. Please forgive me when I act as if I know what I need. Please forgive my rebellion and foolishness. I want your will and not mine. Please Lord. I know there is nothing good in me apart from your Spirit. I am your creation but marred by sin. Thank you for rescuing and restoring me. Please help me remember I am a sheep and I always need my Shepherd.
