In the previous lesson, we learned why our way doesn't work. We touched on how leaning towards God's Way will always be the best choice for his people. God's Way is the right way, in every scenario.
In this lesson, we will discuss the importance of following God’s way versus our own.
Let me just be honest, walking for Christ isn’t a easy walk at all!! Because I walk for christ there are a lot things that I am unable to do and a lot of places I am unable to go to. There are lots of people God won’t allow me to be with and quite frankly I don’t have the life of a regular 16 year old. However, walking with God is, as I say all the time, the joy of my life. I have the opportunity to serve and walk with a God who could be a better friend than many. I have learned and am learning while serving God that my will has to be put down in order to receive God’s. Why? Because his way will always surpass ours just because he already knows the plans he has for us and we don’t. Although, I am submissive to his will now that doesn't mean I was submissive in the beginning. In the beginning I just wanted my ways to work and I wanted to go in the route of those who I saw on social media but God told me on February 11, 2019,
“It’s Gonna Be Different, Their way is not yours”- God
I truly didn’t get this until now. This year God transformed my life in such a big way. I launched my own t-shirt line “I’m Fresh When iWorship.” I released my debut EP “Do The Work” along with a Sold Out Concert at The Perfect Note. I released my newest single “Blooming Season” and I became an Official Business entitled “Jaeden Henderson Enterprises, LLC.” The thing people don’t know about all of these things is how much faith it took to accomplish them. I didn’t and don’t have networks, executives, partnerships, recording labels, or anything. All I had was God’s word and my faith. My way couldn't work because I didn't have one, I only had his way. How is this important? This is important because without God’s Way none of these things would be possible, there would be no t-shirt line or business. I had to submit to his will for my life and accept that his will was ultimately the best way for me. He told me on October 14, 2019
“I will not take you in the route of others. I will take you on the outskirts and I will soar you through me. I will remove the things that are not of me and replace them with things that are.“-God
This journey of life is not easy but when you follow by God‘s Way instead of your own it makes things less difficult. Submitting to God’s will for your life is something that is hard for most people just because of our human tendency to want to control everything and everybody but NEWS FLASH, WE CAN’T CONTROL EVERYTHING!! With this being said give in to God’s Way, watch how things change when you give it all over to him and he will shift everything in your life for the better!
