My Way

 

A few years back, a newspaper in the Philippines reported that in the past year, eleven men were killed in karaoke bars because of the song, My Way.  Apparently, they were angry that someone else sang their song.  Multitudes adore that song because its words speak what is deep in their own heart.  No matter how hard life was, I did it my way.  I was not anyone’s slave or servant.  I was the king over my own life.  Nobody could tell me what to do and I didn’t bow to anyone.  I stood tall and did it my way.  I find it all so amusing, to think I did all that, and may I say, not in a shy way; Oh no, oh no not me, I did it my way.  How sad.  That’s how sin entered the world.  Adam and Eve wanted to do things their own way.  They wanted to be independent from God and make their own decisions.  They wanted knowledge of both good and evil so they didn’t have to submit to anyone.  That’s called rebellion and rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.  1 Sa. 15:23.

God has been trying to bring His children back to Him ever since, through our acknowledgment that He is the only God in the universe and He is in total control of our lives.  We are totally dependent on God.  We are to trust in Him and have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  He is our provider, our high tower, our healer, our everything.  We are His children and members of the family of God.  He is our Father.  “. . . (Y)e have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”  Ro. 8:15. Even in the Old Testament, God was called “Father,” by the people of God.  Deut 32:6 ; Isa 63:16 ; 64:8 ; Jeremiah 3:4 Jeremiah 3:19 ; 31:9 ; Mal 1:6 ; 2:10.

God loved David because David understood that his life was totally in the hands of the living God.  He relied upon and was dependant on his Father in heaven.  He was king over Israel, but he sought to be dependant on God and to do His will.  There were times when David failed to do this and paid a heavy price for it. 

We need to have a heart that is humble, submissive and obedient to God and those that represent Him and have the rule over us.  “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief, for that is unprofitable for you.”  Heb. 13:17.  Jesus Christ was humble, submissive and obedient to the Father in heaven.  We are to be like Him.  Ro. 8:29.
