Are you tempted to take on everything life has to offer on your own? Most of us seem to a various stages in our life, and for some people it’s their only means of operation. I want to challenge you to answer this question: “How’s that working for you?” You see, most of the time we aren’t completely happy with the life we have built, but we are still not willing to let God take the wheel, and just relax and let Him lead. Matthew said it best in the verses below, what kind of a deal would it be to have everything this life had to offer, and yet lose everything – because we HAD to drive ourselves. If we intend to follow Jesus, He has to be in the driver’s seat. That’s how we help people see Him and make a difference in our world.
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 (MSG)
Don’t get stuck in your life, let Jesus take the wheel and drive the direction of your life. You’ll be more than glad He did!
