For many years I ran my own life. Well why not? I was a grown adult! Granted, I didn’t know the Lord at that time. At the end of the day, I did a tremendously good job messing up my life almost completely.
After receiving Jesus as savior, I promoted Him from stranger to Trusted Advisor. I would bring my life plans to Him and hope He would bless what I’d come up with. I felt very spiritual as I proclaimed my utter reliance on God to help me accomplish all I had set before Him. I still found myself frustrated with the mediocre results I was getting.
Finally, realizing that everything rises and falls on leadership I fired my life’s CEO-me! Jesus is now the Chief Executive Officer of my life and I’m doing my best to function as the COO, Chief Operating Officer and carry out His orders.
What about you? Are you ready to open your life under new leadership? Consider this from God’s resume. I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. Jeremiah 29:11 (GW)
Success and Progress!
