John 3:30 (NIV)30 He must become greater; I must become less.”
These words were said by John the Baptist and what he meant by that was he had to put aside his own agenda to follow God's plan for him and his life.
I've heard it said that in order for us to strengthen our walk w/ Christ we must let Him consume every part of us until all that can be seen in us is Him. This is easier said than done a lot of times because we as humans like to stay in control of things. I have witness first hand however that if you can give up control and let God's will for your life take place you just may be surprised that He really does know what's better for us.
