John 3:30 He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.

Our thoughts, our ideas, and our plans must decrease. His thoughts, His ideas, and His plans must increase. How do we do this? By renewing our minds to God’s word (Romans 12:2).

When we understand that our lives should be governed by the word of God, He becomes greater in our lives. As long as we’re skeptical of His word, the more room we make for deception. Satan uses our skepticism to decieve us into thinking our way is right. When we have a few successes doing it our way, we’ll be even more deceived into thinking our way is best. In actuality, our way leads to destruction (Proverbs 14:12).

Let’s reflect. Have you been doing things your way instead of God’s way? If so, let’s reposition God to be the head of our lives instead of ourselves.
