Man was not designed to direct his own steps
I know, O Lord, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.
— Jeremiah 10:23
A quick glance of the world from a “bird’s-eye-view” would suffice to conclude that things are messed up. The way things are, are not the way they ought to be. Why is the world the way it is? The world is messed up because man was not designed to direct the path of his life. Man was created to submit to the direction of God. However, since Adam, we have been in a state of rebellion towards God’s direction and consequently most of us float along in life without even consulting Him. We make a mess out of life then ask God “why Lord?!”
Submit your life fully to the Lordship of Christ. Follow God’s direction through His word, and the leading of the Holy Spirit. Think about those areas in your life that you have been holding on to, and release them to God.
Heavenly Father, forgive me for trying to be the director of my life. I commit myself to your lordship, in Jesus’ Name I pray, AMEN!
