Hello everyone! It’s so good to have you with me today, on Moments Spent with God! I pray that we all will truly experience the loving presence of God in our day and that we will always be open to His still small voice within our spirits.
Yesterday…after returning home from a morning of grocery shopping, I decided to put my headset on and listen to some music, while I spent some quiet moments alone with God. As I was sitting here quietly in my office, I began to look through God’s word and open up my heart and thoughts to Him. Within a short time, He began to enter my thoughts, as my fingers glided across the keyboard, while writing the thoughts and quotes that He had placed within my mind.
Later, as I began to do a little work online, I found myself sharing my thoughts and burdens with God, along with other people that had come to my mind. I was right in the middle of my work, when out of nowhere, I began to feel God’s presence even stronger. You see… for quite some time, I have felt as though I have been putting too much into my work. As some of you may know…I am a person who longs to give my best to God…especially after all He’s done for me, over my lifetime.
Anyways…God began to work with me and answer some of the questions I’ve had on my mind, for quite some time. He began to make my workload seem much easier than what I had made it out to be. As He began to speak through my thoughts, I began to see that I was making life much more complicated than what God had intended for me. In other words, He was trying to convey to me; that all I had to do, was what He expected me to do and from there…leave the rest up to Him.
That afternoon, as I sat and looked at a favorite photo of Jesus on my wall, I began to see that all God expected of me, was to be His secretary…not the boss. In other words…all I had to do was listen for that still small voice that would prompt me, to what He longed for me to do and from there…leave the scene and let Him take over.
How many of us can say that we can let go and let God have His way? You know…it’s so easy to want to do everything on our own but the only problem with that; is that sometimes we find ourselves getting in God’s way.
How do we ever expect God to be seen, if we are in the limelight? These trials that God allows within our lives, is not only a means of allowing us to experience new things and grow from these difficult moments but they are also allowed by God, so others…including ourselves can see Him, for who He really is…a powerful and mighty God.
Just like me…when we go too far and try to run the show; then we are only blocking the presence of God, from working in a way that we can never live up to. This is one reason why we need to listen for God’s still small voice within our spirits…for His loving words can tell us when to go forward and when it’s time to stop.
How is life for you today? Do you feel that God has only worked to a certain extent? If so; then maybe it’s time to let go and allow God to complete His work.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
