The other day I told you……..“Get to know Jesus and find out who you really are. See yourself through God’s eyes instead of your own….God made you, He called you, and He designed you with and for a purpose. Find HIM and allow HIM to show YOU who you REALLY ARE!!!”
Now, here is HOW you do that.
Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self–help is no help at all. Self–sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for? (Matthew 16:24-26 – MSG)
For you and me to find and fulfill ALL of the will of God for our lives we must, “let Him lead” and remember that “we are not in the driver’s seat.” Follow (and obey) HIM and HE will show you every detail and provide every resource necessary to complete every task. Trade your will for His will. So, I ask you, “WHO is driving and steering YOUR LIFE?” Only you know. Adjust if necessary. All you to do is…………scoot over!
