“He must become greater; I must become less." John 3:30 NIV

When life moves us along, often we 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 we need to be reminded to allow Him to guide, He opens our hearts in truth and reminds us we are being led in the timing of His will. 

The selfish side of want will rule us, if we refuse to leave the driver’s seat and forget to trust the One who navigates our days. But, Jesus will show us how to examine our lives and recognize why we need a Savior. He will humble our hearts so we will understand why He must be greater in our lives. 

Jesus will lead us to the Father. And, when our hearts have been renewed, He will guide us to the cross. He will allow us to remember how He painfully took our shame. He will cover us in grace and helps us see why we need the strength of His powerful love. 

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 be greater in our lives and show us how to humbly love You even more... Amen
