Whether you envision a throne or a car, Jesus wants to lead your life. He wants to be the center of your life — around which everything revolves. This is not just a one-time experience; it’s a daily practice.
How can you do this? Commit to live your life for Him one day at a time. You can’t change your past. It’s done. You can’t change your future. That is in God’s hands. You can only live in this moment. So live one day at a time, and each day choose to let Jesus lead your life.
That may start in the mornings with prayer and studying your Bible. Before the day starts, you slip to your knees and pray, “Jesus, today I want you to be the center of my life around which everything revolves. I want to please you and live for you. I yield myself to you today. Please fill me with your Spirit to live for you today.” That’s a great way to start the day!
But be warned: Sometime during the day, you may take the throne or grab the wheel again. Anger will surge, temptation will win, selfishness will rise up, and you will sin against God. When you do, confess it quickly to God. (1 John 1.9 NIV) says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
Confess your sin and then yield yourself once again to Him. “Lord, I want you to fill me and use me today. I’m yielding the control of my life to you!”
