Who’s in charge?
I’ve heard it said, “If you have a price, the devil has a checkbook.” For most of us the area of control is something we place as a great priority in our western society. But when we come to God we not only surrender our life to him for eternity, but also into our daily living. The devil wanted Jesus to control and take authority in his own hands. Rather than do God’s will in His own Way, Jesus chose to do God’s will, God’s way.
Are there areas in your life you are trying to do God’s will your way? Take some time to pray and listen for God’s voice to show you these areas. Once you have discovered them surrender each one to him in prayer. Write down what changes you need to make.
