I had one of those mornings this weekend when God overwhelmed me with Himself and I have no choice but to spill it out with words. You ready?
It’s. not. about. me! I know. Revelation.
I’ve felt distracted lately with this book release and wondering if people will like it or like me or crucify me with rejection. Me. Me. Me. I’m sick of me!
Which is good. Because IT’S NOT ABOUT ME. Or you! Sorry to burst your bubble. It’s all about HIM!
This world deceives us. There’s an underlying mantra whispered around every stinkin’ corner, “It’s all about you. It’s all about you.” It’s all about how many likes you get and how many subscribers you have and how many people buy your book or laugh at your witty little jokes.
I needed a jolt. Again.
This life, it’s not about you or me. It’s all about Him. It’s all about this God who radically loves us and made a way for His enemies to be forgiven and set free. It’s all about us reflecting and declaring that truth to the ends of the world. It’s all about Him increasing and us decreasing. That’s the point.
“He must increase, but I must decrease.”
So I had a little church in my living room this weekend, pointing to Him. Telling Him to use me as He wills. Hoping He allows me to write slam poetry and maybe rap one day…for His glory of course. I’m half-joking. Half.
He’s so patient with us. He’s so gracious to lift the fog.
Fill me, Lord…
How have you been tempted to think it’s all about you lately?
How do you remind yourself that it’s all about Him?
