We try so hard fighting what God is moving us away from. God wants to give us something or take us somewhere, so much better, but we fight it. In essence, we’re fighting God. What we don’t realize is, we have already lost the battle. So why fight? We can’t fight against God and expect to win.
Every time we go against what God wants us to do, we are rebelling against God. We are being disobedient. And with disobedience comes consequences.
We don’t know more than God, neither do we have power over God. We think we know what’s best for us, but we don’t. Look back at all those times you took control of your life, and see how much of a mess you made. But thank God for his mercy and grace, that he didn’t leave you there.
God knows what’s best for you. He knows how to take your mistakes, and turn them around for your good. He knows how to turn your sorrows into joy. He is the way, the truth and the life.
Stop fighting the one person you will never win against, and let God be the wind beneath your wings! Soar — and let Him take you where you never been, and do what you could never do on your own.
Romans 8:28 (KJV) – and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
John 14:6 (KJV) – Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Psalm 107:11-13 (KJV) – because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High: therefore he brought down their heart with labor; they fell down, and there was none to help. Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.
Job 5:17 (KJV) – behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty.
