Don’t Lead. Follow.


“What if I start Monday?” I told the Lord in my heart.

Note I did not really ask. I honestly told. Like I knew best. But I made it sound like a question. As though I was submitting to Him and His will for me.

His answer came quickly.

“What if you let me lead you,” the Holy Spirit of God spoke to my heart.

And there it was. And is. The truth. Believers in the Lord Jesus Christ are to be followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our lives are to be surrendered to Jesus.

Whereby our schedules are to be yielded to God.

Whereby instead of trying to plan our lives and fill our calendars and agendas apart from the Lord, we are to pray to God, wait on God, hear God, and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit of God.

What I thought best to do Monday was not God’s will.

I humbled myself and chose to follow the leading of His Holy Spirit instead.

Please don’t try to plan your life without God. Cry out to Him in prayer and let Him lead the way.

May we all do the right thing.

Believe in Jesus – and follow Him faithfully and forevermore! Amen!

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27 NKJV
