He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.
The way I always think of this verse is...More of HIM and less of me. I have used this verse many times in my posts and lately I just can't get away from it. Just this morning before church I visited a blog and this was the verse she used. Again in church this morning the speaker used this verse. Coincidence...probably not. I know that God has been talking to me about this in a few areas of my life. Sometimes we just have to get out of the way and let GOD do what GOD wants to do! That's hard...something I am really struggling with today. So many things can come into your thoughts...distractions...that keep you from letting GOD be GOD in your life. The main distraction for GOD things in my life is fear...mostly of the unknown. You might know all about something...head knowledge...but you don't know it for yourself. For me that brings on fear. For most things of GOD I am good. But sometimes there is just one thing...the same thing...that stops me. Why?...I ask myself. The same answer all the time...I don't know. Maybe...it's just fear of letting go of self.
