“He must become greater; I must become less." John 3:30 NIV
When life quickly moves us along, we often become consumed by our own agendas. We race to move ahead and try to handle life on our own. We forget who’s in charge of ALL things and have difficulty releasing control. But, God knows the plans He has for our days. And, when need to be reminded to trust, He opens our hearts and shows us how to be led by the timing of His will.
The selfish side of want will affect us, if we refuse to leave the driver’s seat and never trust Jesus in the journey. But, if we surrender to Him, He will He will show us how to examine our lives and recognize why we need a Savior. He will humble our hearts when we understand why He must become greater in our lives.
Jesus will lead us. And, when our hearts have been renewed, He will guide us to the cross. He will humble us to remember why He painfully took our shame. He will cover us in grace and help us see why we need the strength of His everlasting love. And, He will remind us why HE is the only way to the Father.
God WILL provide opportunity to be led. He WILL grow us in greatness. He WILL fill us with peace and help us find a path of purpose. And, He will help us desire MORE of Him, when we have learned why there must be LESS of us.
Dear God, Thank you for Your everlasting love. When we become too full of ourselves, humble our hearts and forgive us. Help us see beyond our own desires. Teach us to recognize why You must become greater in our lives and show us how to humbly love You more. Amen
