No Time Left for You
How can we expect to know God, when we don't spend any time with Him?

What we can walk away from, we have mastered. Whatever we cannot walk away from has mastered us. Whatever is controlling you - you do not have authority over. 2 Peter 2:19 ... For you are a slave to whatever controls you.
Jesus Take the Wheel or Take a Seat?
Sometimes we just want Jesus to go along with what we want to do, instead of us following what He wants us to do. John 10:27 The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me.
They All Fall Down
Don't put people on pedestals. People fall from pedestals - it's not a good place to be. Only Jesus deserves to be on the pedestal of our hearts. “Have no gods other than Me." Exodus 20:3
