How willing are you to allow God to make you into His perfect design for you?
Really we all want to shout “Yes” to that. Without a
doubt we know our richest blessings, greatest fulfillment lies in being
perfectly in God’s will. But the real question is…what if His will is not the same as my will?
That sums up our frequent hesitation to simply let God work in our life! Letting go at times can seem so hard and even when we say we do, we still (in the deep corners of our heart) want to hold on, hold back or even yet correct God’s judgment. I have struggled with this too and
I share my testimony here.
It is all about your attitude and positioning to God.
- Do you honestly trust Him?
- Acknowledge His Lordship in our life? Being yielded to God is an active position of trusting him.
His work in us is progressive, so sometimes we can’t always see the end at the beginning, hence we trust God. Progressive also means over time. Here is where we can have a big challenge as His timing and ours rarely meet. We often operate in an environment where the urgent and the important collide.
Stay focused –
what is important is God’s will and allowing Him to fashion our lives,
inevitably what we think is urgent gets dealt with, in His time. And
what if seems God is not working to your time? Remember, God owns time it is never too late.
We have many verses of encouragement and directions to trust God. Take a moment a read a few:
- 1 Peter 5:7 - Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
- Isaiah 26:4 - 4 Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.
- Nahum 1:7 - 7 The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,
- Proverbs 3:5-7 - Trust
in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own
understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make
your paths straight. 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the
LORD and shun evil.
- Isaiah 64:8 - 8 Yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.
