Most people don’t trust God with their life, they want to be in control. And that’s what being conscious and observing the present moment does. It says, “Lord take my life, take control, I don’t want to be in control, I want my life in this world to die, so that You can be Lord of my life; because the spiritual blessings You’ve promised me, I know await Your control over my life.”
If God was to give you everything you wanted, it would destroy you, but when you give up your life He can give you more than you can imagine, think, or believe; but you have to trust Him.
This is only a small portion of the teaching, “The Melchizedek Priesthood“.
