Read Luke 9:23-27
At times I can be the most selfish person in the world. As a society here in America, we are indoctrinated into believing that we are entitled to what we want, we only have to work to get it. With government assistance, work may not even be necessary.
Jesus said, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23.
Self will occurs when our wants do not align with God’s will. This doesn’t mean you cannot have things you want, it simply means you must fulfill God’s plans before you work on your plans.
I find this difficult often times. I had to start writing in the mornings to ensure I give the first portion of my morning to Him.
Will you give up your desires for His? I will do my best to achieve this, but it will involve reading the Bible to discover His full will, and spending time with Him in prayer. Will you join me in this journey?
