Winning the CONTROL Battle In 2018
As a CEO in the marketplace early in my walk with Christ, I allowed career uncertainties to spill into my personal life. I allowed inexorable stress to surge through my soul. I allowed a ticking time bomb to pervade my world. And it produced horrific consequences.
My futile quest to make everything “perfect” had landed me in a slipstream of angst. While chasing money, prestige, power, and possessions, I had taken a front-row seat to a parade of negative consequences produced by worrying about an “uncertain future.”
I was playing boss and had forgotten about God.
If we think we can do anything on our own, it won’t be long before we think we can do everything by ourself.
That’s why I ask God to remind me every day that I am not the boss of my life. To keep me on my knees, looking up to him for direction and discernment. To give me the power to vanquish SELFISHNESS.
HOW ABOUT YOU?
Will God drive your life car in 2018 or will you be a back-seat driver?
“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.” 2 Corinthians 12:10
