When Will Your Life Begin?
Yes, I am guilty of worrying about things I don't have any control over. It takes me a minute to turn it over to God. I love the Lord, however, I always believe that I can figure things out or fix it. We are all guilty of that. It's simply because we look at our problems through natural eyes.
We just don't recognize the supernatural eyes that God sees our situations through. We believe God for some things some of the time. We trust Him only when it's convenient for us. The inconsistency lies in us all, because we are human. It's a daily process that requires prayer. Life begins when we let go and let God. He wants us to trust Him completely and turn over all our problems and cares to Him. In our waiting, we pray and remain faithful. Hard to do? Of course, it is! The flesh wants immediate results and we tend to get frustrated if God is not operating on our timetable. Then, we think about everything in our lives that is not "working" right. That overwhelming feeling can cause sleepless nights and a restless spirit. Today, think about where you are stuck. That area in your life that keeps repeating itself over and over in a negative way. Relationships? Finances? Losing Weight? Following your passion? What is it that you have yet to turn over to God that you've been trying to do on your own? Ask yourself why you haven't.
The core of that answer will most likely boil down to fear. We may want to stop choosing the wrong mate, become debt free, lose weight, or pursue our dreams. But we get into a comfort zone and start to believe that things will always be this way. The problem is too big or has gone too far. We don't have what it takes or dreams were meant for someone else. What will you lose by giving it over to God? What will you lose by starting to believe that you are worthy? Let the fear go and let God handle it. Yes, it will be hard. But think about the last 5 years, 10 years, or more that you've been stuck in the same thing! In order to get what you've never had, you have to be willing to do things you've never done. You are going to have to step out on faith and allow God to work. He won't do it without your permission. You have to turn it over to Him freely and trust in His result. In the meantime, make room for the blessing. Make room for your the life you were meant to live.
