God didn’t plan that man should lead himself and you need to understand that. No matter how intelligent you are, you can’t direct yourself. Beware, because the devil is in the business of making you belief that you can direct your life; he knows that once you do that, you become a cheap prey for him. A sheep follows the leader and once you as a sheep do that, you won’t follow a stranger.
David, a great man that lived on the earth said, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delights in His ways (Psalm 37:23)”. Every one of us should start seeking the One who can direct us. Regardless of how many mistakes you have made in the past, to know the next step you need to take, find out from God. Settle down and say, “Father I agree, please direct my steps.”
God didn’t plan that we should live a life of trial and error. Even if motivational books tell you Thomas Edison tried a thousand times before he succeeded, you must understand that his experience is not scriptural. Even though David was a warrior who didn’t run from battles, he didn’t rush into battles. See 1 Samuel 5:17-21 and 1 Samuel 5:22-25. The Lord is the OVERALL LEADER. In the world maturity is seen in continuous independence however, in the kingdom, your maturity is seen in your continuous dependence on God.
PRAYER: Lord, I submit total leadership of my life to you, lead the way and I will follow in Jesus’ name. Amen.
