Relinquish Lordship

There are a few questions that every Christian needs to ask themselves regularly.

Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

2 Corinthians 13:5

Who is lord of your life?

In Romans 14:8-9, Paul tells us,

For whether we live, we live unto the LORD; and whether we die, we die unto the LORD: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the LORD's. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be LORD both of the dead and living.

If you are truly honest with yourself, would you say that you seek His guidance in all areas of your life?

Proverbs 3:6 says

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.

Do you follow Him based on your own understanding, or do you trust Him and seek His guidance through prayer, Bible reading and Godly counsel?

Proverbs 11:14

Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

Is His will for your life more important to you than your own?

Matthew 12:50

For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.

What is the endgoal?

John 7:18

He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh His glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace
(Num. 6:24-26).

    If your desire is to do God’s will above your own, how can we know that we are following him, and not leaning to our own understanding?

      Carrie,
      I took a little longer to respond because I wanted to spend a little more time on the answer. Please see Trusting Decisions.
