John testified about Him and cried out, This was He of Whom I said, He Who comes after me has priority over me, for He was before me. [He takes rank above me, for He existed before I did. He has advanced before me, because He is my Chief.]
-John 1:15 (AMP)

John really knew his place.  He regarded Jesus as his chief.  A chief is a boss who is in charge.  Most of us have trouble with someone being in charge of our decisions.  We like to think we are capable and self-knowledgable to make most of our decisions on our own.  Because os this misguided thinking we tend to set off on our own without consulting our Chief.  This can take us off course until we realize God wants us in a different direction.  It’s hare because it’s so simple.  All we need to do is pause and seek God’s direction for us.  Why do we forget? We allow ourselves to be distracted with ourselves.  Let us realize He Who has priority over us, Who has been from before the beginning of time,Who is our Christ – our Savior and Chief only wants the best for us. Why do we settle for the good when we can take our direction from Him and have the best.
