Control


A major part of following Jesus is giving up control, and that involves change. There is a change that must happen in your mind to make a lasting difference. I pray that has happened to you already. Jesus knew that His life was about to change, but He kept His eyes on God. Control over His life was given over to the Father.

 
Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.  Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.  Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.  “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour.  Father, glorify your name!” Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” John 12:23-28

He was willing. Are you? Wherever you are today in life know that God loves you and has a better plan for you. Give Him control. Amen?
