God does NOT want to be my co-pilot!


He will never settle for second place. He expects to be put first. He has the plan for my life and He wants to be the pilot of my life. He alone knows what is best for me ( and for you too   )

Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my favorite verses. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."  Doctrinally it is part of some precious promises to Israel, but if God has a plan for His chosen people - I am sure He also has a plan for His child.

When the Lord called His disciples He said "FOLLOW ME".  Way too often we ( and believe I am too often guilty of this myself) go our way and say Lord, come follow me, but sheep don't lead the Shepherd - the Shepherd leads the sheep! John 10:27-28 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

We may not always understand the way the Lord leads us, but we can trust Him to know best. On the newest McKamey's CD there is a song called "One Step at a Time". Part of the song that I love goes "I don't know where He's taking me; But I know He'll take care of me. " (if you want to hear part of it or download it click here then go to Music Download and you will find the song there.)

That song is true. I don't always understand what the Lord has in mind but thankfully I can trust Him even when I don't understand. 

My prayer for my life is that I will listen and follow the Lord better. His way - not mine.

My prayer for you is that first of all you know the Lord Jesus as your Saviour.

If you are flying your life solo without Him  you are heading for a crash.  Only one Pilot has permission to land in Heaven and that is Jesus. If you are flying without Him, Heaven is restricted airspace for you and you will not be allowed in. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Then I pray you will follow Him. Seek His will for your life and obey. Put HIM first. We weren't put here for our pleasure, to make money or any of the millions of things we get distracted by. Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

We were created to please the Lord. Revelation 4:11 "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." We can only do that by faith - Hebrews 11:6, "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."

Follow HIM

Obey HIM

Let the Lord Jesus Christ be the Pilot of your life today - He is the Way!
