“But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.)” Romans 8:9 NLT
Living under God's control happens when we submit ourselves to the the Spirit of God living in us; when we surrender our will to follow His will for our lives.
Just as Jesus submitted himself to the will of the father, we are to do the same. ““Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”” Luke 22:42 NLT
This is a difficult thing to do for many of us, because by our nature we want to be in control. Allowing God to take control of our lives requires an intentional act of surrendering ourselves to God's control.
How about it? Are you willing to wave the white flag and give it all to God?
