Isaiah 1:11 ” The multitude of your sacrifices – what are they to Me? Says the Lord. I have more than enough of burnt offerings, of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats.”

God looks carefully at what we offer Him.  But He looks even more closely at what we don’t offer Him.  Are you withholding some area of your life for fear He’ll tell you to stop it?  Are you denying Him a corner of your world because you enjoy it way too much?  What we offer up to the Lord is much more important to us than to Him…for what He’s looking for is a total surrender…a relinquishing of ourselves…and a giving up of control.  As  I Samuel 15:22 states, “To obey is better than sacrifice.”   God’s looking for our obedience not some ritual.
