We're on a collision course with "self'' when we choose to link arms with the Father.
Our way is self preservation, of time, money and relationship and His way is of sacrifice. Our way is of ease and comfort and His way for us at times feel full of uncertainty.
It's the desire of man to obtain what we think is control of situations in our life.
But, as we choose to walk with Christ, with His arm in ours, His direction for us pulls against the direction we would naturally go. Therefore, we have decisions to make all along the way.
Do we desire God's way above our own and surrender to the pull of Christ. Do we allow Him to lead even when the path seems rough and never the direction we would choose. Or do we think our way is best and ask Him to bless our path as we lead the way.
When our arm is linked with the Father, there can only be one directing our life. "There is a way that seems right to man, but the end result is of destruction." Allow Him to lead as He knows our final destination.
