 The Spirit Controlled Life

The natural tendency in the life of most Christians today is to let Christ in but not relinquish control.

The reason so many professing Christians are living carnal lives is they recognize His presence but not His Lordship. They consider Jesus Christ as a factor in their lives when it is convenient but never let Him be the major factor.

The committed Christian puts Christ in the driver’s seat instead of Him just riding along as a passenger. It doesn’t make life easier, however. In fact, it becomes somewhat harder but infinitely more joyous.

Prayer: That I relinquish all control over my life to the Holy Spirit’s control.

(These notes are by John Griffin. To more fully understand these comments, read the daily devotion for the day dated the same as this in “My Utmost For His Highest”).

A Little Bit MoreSpiritual Markers

A spiritual marker identifies a time of decision when you clearly know that God guided you. Can you remember the moment you became a child of God? Were there specific times when He called you to His ways of living? Can you point to times when He clearly guided you in a decision? Were there times when He spoke powerfully to you about a commitment you should make?

Keep track of these important moments! Regularly rehearse them and notice the steady progression in the way God has led you. This will help you understand God’s activity in your life and give you a sense of direction as you face future decisions.
