Romans 10:9 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

When people read Romans 10:9, they think of making Jesus Lord over their lives from a broad, distant perspective. They usually don’t specify His Lordship down to each individual area of their lives.

He wants to be and should be Lord in our finances, our health, our relationships, our employment, in parenting our children. Everything. We shouldn’t say He’s Lord, but deny Him access to certain areas in our lives.

We shouldn’t make a move without His approval. It’s not because we’re incapable of making decisions. But, it’s because we’re honoring the One who saved us by including Him in all our affairs.

When we make an effort to include Him in everything we do, He provides successful results. Stop leaving your life to chance and let God be Lord.

Philippians 2:9-11 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
