In His Hands 

“He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭10:39‬ ‭

“Have it your way”, “Because you’re worth it”, “Obey your thirst”, “Just do it”. 

That must sound familiar, as we have been raised hearing those phrases from some of the top selling companies in the world. The way of the world is always telling us that our greatest chance and the best hope for our destiny is to follow ourselves. Not principalities, not powers of darkness, not the devil, but just simply follow yourself. Jesus says the opposite. Jesus says the greatest thing you can do with your life is to put it in His hands. As I look at those top selling companies not a single one of them has ever really made any kind of sacrifice for me to be better off or for my well-being. But Jesus, what a reference point of his love, and care for my life, when I look in his hands.
