Stop Taking Control
Pastor Joe

Verse:
 

"Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such 'wisdom' does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice." James 3:13-16

 
Lesson:
 

Are there areas of your life that seem to be chaotic and confusing right now? Have you considered how much you allow God to control that area? Chances are it's an area you have never even thought about praying for, or asking God for help and really thinking about his purpose for you. Perhaps your "selfish ambition" is the very thing preventing you from keeping that area in order. Let God worry about that and in turn, seek out others who might benefit from your help. These are the things that will bring you much success and fulfillment.

 
Prayer:
 
"Lord, we submit to you those things we hold so close to ourselves. We know we cannot handle these things of life on our own, and we ask that you take them from us. Help us to lean on your mighty hand." - Amen
