|“NOTHING MAKES SENSE FOR A REASON.”
(this is what He spoke to my heart.)
We must be STRIPPED of our VAIN ATTEMPT to “LEAN ON OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING” if we are to TRULY TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL OUR HEART”
How many of us have prayed for a particular situation (or person) for years, and have not YET seen the fruit of our prayers….???!?
And some of us have prayed and seen the EXACT OPPOSITE occur!
I am telling you, we are practically being FORCED to “LEAN NOT ON OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING “!
Why do I say this?
BECAUSE FOR MANY OF US, WHAT USE TO “WORK” FOR US, SIMPLY DOESN’T WORK ANYMORE…and it just doesn’t make any sense.
WE HAVE LOST CONTROL OF OUR OWN CONTROL….
WHICH IS EXACTLY WHERE GOD WANTS US!!!!
Our sense of our “losing control” in turn propels us to GIVE ALL CONTROL OVER TO GOD, AND “TRUST HIM WITH ALL OUR HEART.”
We are learning to “walk by faith and not by sight…”. (2Cor 5:7)
It seems our God is making 2 Cor. 5:7 a very part of our being. It seems MUCH of His Written Word (The Seed, Who IS CHRIST, Gal 3:16) has become the LIVING WORD in us.
(THE WORD IS BECOMING FLESH AND HE IS DWELLING WITHIN US).
As sons of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, (Gal 3:26), we must not lose heart.
We must TRUST IN THE LORD with ALL our hearts and LEAN ON CHRIST, and NOT ON OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING…
So, when nothing makes any sense, and my own efforts to FIX situations cause them to appear WORSE, I am beginning to realize I HAVE GOT TO receive His GRACE to LET GO AND LET GOD HAVE HIS WAY….
Those who KNOW me PERSONALLY, know that “LETTING GO” doesn’t come easy for me.
Maybe I am not alone?
I am so thankful to The Lord for His FAITHFULNESS to COMPLETE the work HE BEGAN.
