To start this lesson off, I want you to ask yourself a question.
Ask Yourself: When was the last time I talked to God and asked him his opinion on how I should go about doing things in my life?
Most of you would probably answer and say, I'm unsure. This answer comes because as humans we have a tendency to want to do everything ourselves, our own way. I often times here people say, "It's my way or the highway", and most prefer it like this. Most people haven't been taught how to ask God his opinion, they've only been taught how to ask God for things. You must learn how to follow God's way at all times for it will never lead you wrong.
When submitting to your own way you will find that things won't work out, arrogance will arise, and corruption will travel. Things never work out how we want them to when following by our own ways, but following God's Way will always cancel any trail of corruption.
Jesus after The Last Supper prayed on the Mountain of Olives when he said,
"Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done." -Luke 22:42
Jesus started to request for his own sake that the cup be removed, but then he asked that God's will be done and not his own. He had an understanding that God's will better than his, for all things work to the good of those love and serve God. In all circumstances, we must be like Jesus when considering whether or not to follow by our own way or giving into God's way. God's way always brings a different approach, it always brings comfort and direction from Godly sources. Following by our own way always brings chaos and confusion. We must not be self-centered and selfish, we must put our will's down and always be submissive to the will of God because his way is the best way.
Why does our way not work? It's a simple answer. God's Way will lead us to places that our way could never, mostly because it isn't covered up with worldly things. I live my life not by my own will but I live my life by God's Will. Here is why you should follow God's Way: GOD'S WAY OVERCOMES ANY TRAIL THE ENEMY MAY TRY TO TRICK YOU IN GOING INTO!!! Follow it and you shall never go wrong!
