“Practically everything that goes on in the world – wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important – has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out – but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity.”
I tell you, I want to be set for eternity. But I have to confess I frequently want my own way; I frequently want to feel important. This is a tough scripture for me. I think it is in my very nature to want my own will, to be self-centered. When I seek God’s will ahead of my will, I’m less isolated from Him. When I’m less isolated from Him or closer to Him, I have more power, His power.
PLEASE GOD, SHOW ME TODAY YOUR WAY AND HELP ME TO PUT ASIDE MY WAY. HELP ME TO DO WHAT YOU WANT. AMEN.
