Does God Control Your Life?
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight". Proverbs 3:5-6
As we mature in our walk with God, we gain knowledge because we are spending time with Him in His word.As we grow, we begin to understand our identity. As His children, we desire to see God's truths available to others so we begin to reach out and go "fishing" fulfilling His commission for us. We love as He does, living according to the two great commandments. This practicing the faith opens our minds, renewing the way we think. This gets us into alignment with Father's sovereign will, His perfect will.
Guess what? Transformation is taking place. As we grow closer, our "free will" should diminish to the point if being nonexistent due to our will being occupied by Father's sovereignty, or complete control of us, mind, body, and Spirit.
We begin to understand that each of us do not hold the keys to our vessels anymore. We are completely surrendered and submitted to God. You and I do not have rights to ourselves. This brings greater glory to our Father.
We become bond servants. Released from the slavery of sin to the freedom of living out a life in God's hands co-heirs to His Kingdom. Living out the call, the same call as Christ, living as Christ did making every decision based on our Father's understanding, not our own.
Get there, and Holy of Holy is experienced because you are by Him, in Him, for Him, and living through Him. People will see Christ in your son, daughter of God. You will look and act as He did representing His Father here on earth. Very important today.
