What is it about being in control that so appeals to us? Is it that we think we can do a better job at running our lives than God can? How’s that working out for you?
I know in my own life that whenever I try to control things, things get out of control. Whether that’s my circumstances or other people or whatever. It just seems to wind up a mess if I’m not working in cooperation with God. This reminds me that I need him, oh, I need him; every hour I need him.
If I want things to go well (and who doesn’t?), I need to seek God’s wisdom, God’s direction, God’s help. I need to have the Holy Spirit dwelling and working within me. I need to let Christ live his life through me, rather than me trying to live my life ‘for’ him. Every resource I need for godly living is accessible to me when I live this way.
