“He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30, NKJV
“Saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”” Luke 22:42 NKJV
Jesus had the hardest battle of His will to get on the cross, yet it yielded the greatest results, the greatest impact, the greatest blessing in His life. What He knew He could not do, or even wanted to do, He set Himself in prayer to humble himself and decrease, so the grace of God, the power of God, the will of God could increase. The more you decrease, the more He can increase, birthing the results you’re looking for.
There are things that in spite of how tough it may seem, it can all be accomplished as you go before God and decrease. Decrease and you’ll hear Him. What you can’t do, allow Him to do in you. He works in us the will and the ability to do what pleases Him. It is the key to every victory, every inward fight, every calling fulfilled.
Prayer: Father, increase in my life, and I must decrease before You. I desire to walk in your calling for me. I humble myself and I decrease, so I can hear You, so Spirit can lead me. Give me the strength to accept what Your will is and submit to the leading of Your Spirit. Increase Lord and birth the greatest results in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
