Have you just added God to your life? And is He just a part of your life? God doesn't want just a part of you, He wants all of you.
And he doesn't just want to be a part of your life. We are not to just add Jesus to our lives, and go on as normal.
Or make Him just a part of our lives, He needs to be our life, at the center of everything. The breath that we breath.
We got to move from co-pilot to pilot, or backseat driver to the driver of our lives.
We got to take our hands of the controls and give it over to the one who uatilmately is in control in the first place and do better at than us.
Every thing we do needs to with wheather it's pleasing to God or not, kingdom focused, and not self or money focused or driven.
But all our descions and things we do should be driven by God. A man makes his plans, but God directs His path.
A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps. Proverbs 16:9 KJV My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord , and depart from evil. Proverbs 3:1-7 KJV We got to be very prayerful when making descions and rather it's for the right reasons. And live He is the one in control and not us.
But how do we really practice that and live that out in our lives. Like the verses say, It's no longer I that liveth, but He that liveth in me.
But how do we do that daily? I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20 KJV I guess as Paul said, "I die daily.". 1 corinthians 15:31 It's a daily thing.
To choose to lay down our selves, our will and and desires for His. Choosing His way.

My first 7 years of blogging.
Great inspirational reading!
