Equipping Your Reimagine Journey

Taking a do-it-yourself approach to life? Or  trusting the Master?

It is for men to choose whether they will govern themselves or be governed.”

- Henry Ward Beecher, Proverbs from Plymouth Pulpit (1887)

 

Who would you say is in charge of your life?

Whoever controls your heart controls everything.

All facets of your personality are dominated by your will. 

 

If you live by self-rule, anarchy will confuse you and misguide you.

If you live by majority-rule opinion polls, you’ll find the crowd is wrong.

The only perfect government in the world is the monarchy of the King of hearts.

 

Jesus reigns as Emperor of the soul, annexing His subjects to His out-of-this-world empire.

One day an angel will incarcerate hell’s despot-dragon, and paradise will dawn over new Jerusalem.

Until that golden day, storms hide stars, making it hard to find your bearings; high seas may disorient you.

 

Do not merely use Christ as a figurehead on the bow—

surrender the ship’s wheel to the Captain and He will make sense of it all.

 

“These are the kings who reigned in Edom before an Israelite king reigned over them.”

Genesis 36:31 NLT
