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

When life moves us along, we often become consumed by our own agendas. We race to get ahead and try to handle life on our own. We forget who’s in charge of ALL things and have trouble releasing control. But, God knows the plans He has for our days. When we need to be reminded to trust, He opens our hearts and guides us by the timing of His will. He provides what we need to make us stronger… 

The selfish side of want will affect us, if we don’t leave the driver’s seat and trust Jesus in the journey.But, if we surrender to Him, He will He will help us examine our hearts and recognize why we need a Savior. He will help us understand He must be greater in our lives. 

Jesus will lead us. And, when our hearts have been renewed, He will guide us to the cross. He will help us remember why He painfully took our shame. He will cover us in grace and help us see the need for His amazing love. 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 His 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 for You. Help us see beyond our own desires. Teach us to recognize why You must become greater in our lives and show us how to gratefully love You more. Amen
