Recently, I’ve been happier and so in love with God’s goodness in my life. I have opened my eyes to his wonders and appreciated everything he has been doing in the life of others and also my own. I have seen mountains been moved and situations turning all for his glory. And believe me, it is wonderful. No one loves you like him, no one protects you and accepts you the way he does. And when you put others in that role you only bring frustration and anger into your life.
So choose peace, and let him show you how amazing he is. As for myself, there were many seasons where I was battling and fighting with God over what I want and what I need, without understanding that his wants and needs for my life are so different. And he will take you into the furnace and put you in a place where you will humble yourself and learn that you are not in control, he is. Just follow his path and stop being stubborn because all you’re doing is hurting yourself. I call it a furnace because a lot gets tested, your wellbeing, your friendship group, even your own initiation. You’ll discover that you don’t know yourself that well.
He will show you that. And you’ll realise that all the strength you have, even all the wisdom, the beauty. Everything comes from him and without him we are nothing. And as scary as it is, it is actually an amazing feeling because you know where your source is. Where to go to for renewal of strength, wisdom and love.
The general notion here is that resting with God starts from understanding who he is and how powerless we are on our own. Through that, you will build confidence in his power, his direction and his will.
I will leave you with Isaiah 40 verse 31 which says:
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Meditate on this during the week, may you be blessed as you do so
