“Less of me and more of you.” From time to time I hear this in the prayer room. I would have to say this may be the best summary of what the Lord taught me in PA. It was my first time leading a group of peers, and I learned quickly that this was key. One morning I got up early to spend time with the Lord. I had grand thoughts of sitting down and planning out the day ahead. The Lord quickly humbled me in the form of a question. “Are you leading this trip, or is my Spirit?” I repented to the Lord for my attempt to take over, and went back to my team. I looked at the team a few hours later and admitted, I am not sure what we are supposed to do today, and I need you and the Lord to help me figure that out. The Lord very clearly showed us what He wanted us to do that day, I just needed to step out of the way. There are many other things the Lord is faithfully teaching me, but for now I will just summarize with this verse.
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
