My Devotions for the day....

"The God who made the world and everything in it, this Master of sky and land, doesn't live in custom-made shrines or need the human race to run errands for him, as if he couldn't take care of himself. He makes the creatures; the creatures don't make him. Starting from scratch, he made the entire human race and made the earth hospitable, with plenty of time and space for living so we could seek after God, and not just grope around in the dark but actually find him. He doesn't play hide-and-seek with us. He's not remote; HE'S NEAR! We live and move in him, can't get away from him! One of your poets said it well; 'We're the God-created.' Well, if we are the God-created, it doesn't make a lot of sense to think we could hire a sculptor to chisel a god out of stone for us, does it?
God overlooks it as long as you don't know any better-but the time is past. The unknown is now known, and HE'S CALLING FOR A RADICAL LIFE CHANGE! He has set a day when the entire human race will be judged and everything set right. And he has already appointed the judge, confirming him before everyone by raising him from the dead.
At the phrase 'raising him from the dead' the listeners split: Some laughed at him and walked off making jokes; others said, 'Let's do this again. We want to hear more.'
Acts 18:24:32 MSG

This was my devotion for the day. I found it to be good stuff, so I thought I would share. God is looking not only for a radical life change, but for RADICAL LIVING! A life lived for HIM! He's easily found when looked for! It is well worth the hunt! But, mind you the hunt will be short lived. Because he is waiting for you to turn your every move to him. Just like my status said, He is looking for us to go to HIS FEET FIRST in EVERY decision that we make. "For everything that we give to God is his responsibility, EVERYTHING WE KEEP IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY!" -unknown I think I would rather God have the responsibility. I would rather live in peace and know HE HAS IT UNDER CONTROL!!!!!!!
