Good morning people who let go of the reins of control in your life.
I find myself asking the question: Who is your source?
Theologically, I am sure we would all answer that God is our Source. We would be correct theologically.
But how about in reality?
Too many times, I have lived life like I was my own source. I would never say it in such an honest way, and yet the fruit of my life would affirm that this indeed has been my reality.
When I believe that I can be good enough in my own strength, I am relying upon myself and not the Lord God Almighty.
When I believe that I can manage circumstances in such a way that I keep my joy and peace, I am once again relying upon myself and not on the Lord God Almighty.
When I believe that I know what people need – whether it be while ministering or simply in relationships – you guessed it, I am still relying upon myself and not on the Lord God Almighty.
I am waking up to the truth that I cannot be the source of my life. (I am aware that my honesty here might be a little shocking to you, but I am compelled to be real and not paint a false picture).
I need God, I really do. And not just for some things. I need God for everything. And not just sometimes. Every moment of every day. I need God fully, always, I really do.
And so do you. We cannot be the source of our own lives. In fact, the Bible says that we no longer live but Christ lives in us. Now we must live allowing Jesus to live in us, and we need to do so without trying to manage Him.
May we all know what it is to live life with God as our Source. Fully. Completely. Always. In everything.
