These words today come from my new friend on the web, Jeannette. She is a gifted writer who posted these words from her journal on her blog, and has given me permission to share them with you.
Jesus was not driven. He was led. If you’re driven, there is a furious fire that is never quenched, growing larger and hotter and more dangerous. If you’re led, you are always listening for My voice, and your heart is open to changes I may make in your agenda. There is no panic or force. If you are aggressive, it is not because you fear—it’s because I’m leading you to be bold. If you are quiet and restful it’s not from laziness, but My hand of peace upon you.
You can be like Jesus if you are willing to follow and not insist on “leading your own life.” Leading is my job. I know how.
Teach me how to follow, dear Lord. Give me a heart to obey, in Jesus' Name.
