As a Christian, I believe some of the easiest traps for me to fall into are the ones I have personally set for myself. Sometimes, the hardest things for me to overcome are usually the walls I have personally built with my own hands. And sometimes, the hardest addictions to conquer are the ones I have subconsciously self-inflicted upon myself.
The Reality Is: It’s really easy to get in a habit of doing things OUR way, on OUR time, and for OUR benefit. But, if we are to get really honest with each other, that is the exact opposite of who Jesus Christ has called us to be.
We need to realize that as Christians, we are NOT the directors of our lives anymore, and that we gave up that right the second we decided to GIVE our lives to HIM. In reality, we are supporting actors who have been blessed with the opportunity to be part of God’s bigger story. This role is not to be taken lightly, and I believe that God’s story is one that will break all box-office records.
When we begin directing our lives the way that we see fit, we will begin to lose touch with our heavenly father. That intimate and personal connection is the very thing that keeps us focused on righteousness, and turned away from worldliness.
Stay focused on your role as a supporting actor, and allow God to direct your life in the way He sees fit. It’s not about US. Trust me; if He can create the world, I’m sure he’s more than capable of directing your life.
Proverbs 3:6 – In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
