John 14: 1-6
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are
many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I to prepare a place for you? And if I
go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am
you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we
do not know where you are going. How can we know the way? Jesus said to him. “I am the way,
and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

It’s not your way it’s His way.

Proverbs 14:12
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death

Matthew 26:39
39  Going a little farther, He fell facedown and prayed, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup
pass from Me. Yet not as I will, but as You will.”

It’s not my truth but His Truth.

Jeremiah 17:9
The heart is deceitful above all things,
    and desperately sick;
    who can understand it?

Colossians 1:16-17
16  For by [a]  him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible,
whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him
and for him.  17  And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

It’s not my life but his life

Luke 17:33
Whoever tries to save his life will lose it but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
