“He must become greater; I must become less.”
“You’ve got to let go,” God whispered to me as I sat pondering a situation that felt overwhelming. “Don’t rely on your understanding. Lean on me. You have my Spirit inside of you. Nothing can harm that. All things are going to work out for the good,” God explained.
“It’s hard to trust that. You seem out of touch sometimes,” I confessed.
“It’s your ego that gets in the way of Me, in the way of love,” He reminded me. That’s why it’s important to have faith. Let Me become greater, while you become less and less. You’ll arrive at peace and serenity when you do that,” God promised
I thought of the emotional hooks the situation I was pondering contained. I was being pulled into negative thoughts and judgment, and away from God’s Spirit, away from His love. I was seeing the world through my eyes, not through God’s eyes.
“I’ll do my best to become less and for you to become more,” I promised.
“Good! You’ll find that life is much easier when you hand the reins over to me,” God said. I knew He meant it.
