We want to be closer to God’s heart. We want to grow in Him. We want our lives to please Him. We want to be used by Him. But many times we want to control the journey … to choose the route … for God to follow our way instead of us following His way. In this journey to His heart we much choose to trust Him and to trust the process He chooses for us on the journey. Even when it makes NO sense to us! Look at what Jesus says…
“Then he told them what they could expect for themselves: “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 good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you?” Luke 9:23-25 MSG
Each day we must choose to let God lead … to keep Him in the driver’s seat. It won’t look like we think it should most of the time but as we follow Him in this journey to His heart we will find our true, real selves … the person He sees in us right now, the person He is processing.
Trusting God and His process in my journey today! How about you?
