What governs the choices and decisions you make in life?
Are you ruled by fear?
Do you allow God to lead you based on your faith in Him?
Have you allowed your personal interests to steer your thinking and relationships?
Are idols, such as power over others, public recognition and fame, or wealth your motivating factors?
What are you ruled by?
The Word of God makes it very clear that we are not to be ruled either by fear or by personal desires. Instead, we are to be led, governed, and ruled by God, by His Word, and by His Spirit.
