Hello everyone! Welcome once more to Moments Spent with God! I pray that as we spend this special time together with God today; that our hearts will be blessed with renewed hope…hope that will keep us standing, while facing the difficult times in our lives!
Yesterday, as I began a brand new week, I knew what I was going to be doing for the day; but for some reason I began to feel a struggle all morning long…you know, one of those days, when the ideas are there but the pieces just don’t seem to fit together right. After taking a short break to talk with God about the situation, it was as if the ideas not only began to flow quickly through my thoughts; but as the work was being done…everything came together piece by piece, until the work had been accomplished and at its best.
How many times do we try to accomplish something on our own? Don’t we realize that we can only do great things because of the great One that lives within us? I have found so many times that when I let God go to work for me; then I not only stand amazed by how it was done but I also seem to feel a closer connection with God that just makes me love Him more.
Isn’t it amazing, how we will choose to suffer needlessly through moments like these, when all we need to do is ask God for His help. You know…God knows us more than we know ourselves; for He designed us and knows the complete layout for our lives…more than we will ever know.
The one question I have often asked myself; is why do we ask God to come and live within our hearts, if we are never going to allow Him to work, in the way that only He can do? Do we realize that when we choose to try and make life work on our own; that we are only tying God’s hands and keeping Him from doing what He longs so much to do within our lives?
I don’t know about you but I am constantly being reminded of how much I need God to work in my life. Even when I forget to include Him, in the moments when I need Him the most; I find myself reaching back to Him…asking Him to forgive me, for leaving Him out of the moments, when I truly needed Him the most.
As I have traveled through life…I have come to see how much God really does for me each day. When a thought enters my mind and reminds me of something that I forgot; I know that it’s the presence of God. When I don’t know what to do and I’m hurting so much and a still small voice speaks within my spirit…with the answer that I need to a problem; then I know that this is God’s way of reaching out to me.
You know…God longs so much to help us through the times that are just too tough for us to handle on our own; but in order for Him to do the great work that can truly make a difference in our lives; we must first be willing to let go and let God have His way. When we are willing to let go of the reins to a problem and hand them over to God; that is when He will gently steer us in a direction that will eventually lead us to His very best!
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
