God: ask this of you, then He does the rest…..
Luke 9:23 (KJV) “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me”.
In this life we get to make certain decisions about a lot of things that affect our lives, and it is prudent to seek God before making decisions on things that pertain to the major things in our lives.
Life was never designed to be an easy stroll in the park, and it get’s pretty dicey at times, but it can be enjoyable with the hand of God leading us every step of the way when we learn to depend and seek His guidance.
Jesus requires that we take up our cross on a daily basis and deal with the issues of life as they come at us, but the best compliment we can give Him is letting go of the things which easily besets us and let Him show us the best manner of dealing with situations.
Taking up our cross was never meant to be done by our own initiative.
