05 Jan Halt! God is in control
Are we tired of struggling? Yes! We’re exhausted and don’t know what steps to take next. We break ourselves by attempting to be the super-mom, super-wife, and super-woman, all at the same time. There is nothing wrong with trying to be the best versions of ourselves, but everything goes a little pear-shaped when we embark on achieving expectations using only our human wisdom and strength and taking God’s help off from our life-map.
Our physical strength is limited without the help of the Lord. In Christ, our strength and hope are built with the confidence of withstanding life challenges, and no matter how hard we strive to accomplish our goals, without God’s help, frustration and depression become inevitable from our life.
It’s time to halt!
Tell yourself it’s time to take a break; A break from worrying about the cares of life and how to go through the storm, remembering that God is in control. What a privilege! God is the only father who cares so much for us, that even in our depressed moments, He never leaves. Instead, He understands exactly how we feel and whispers to our heart: everything is going to be alright!
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. -1 Peter 5:7
We’re able to harness revival and strength as we surrender our totality to Jesus. God is saying; daughter allows me to handle your worries and burdens, they aren’t meant for you. God never intended us to endure life but rather enjoy life, for His glory and pleasure.
In this present time, many Christian women are becoming afraid of stepping out of their boat of challenges and walking on the waters of peace towards Jesus for rest. Harboring the feeling of, “what if God doesn’t come to my rescue and I end up failing?” Beloved, I dare you to quit the “what if things go wrong cycle” and focus on Jesus, He is stretching forth His hands waiting to receive you, He wants to hold and walk with you through life challenges.
Forget about what could go wrong, stick to your side of the deal by permitting God to take control, and He won’t disappoint you. The Lord is visiting our homes, and He will definitely bend our broken hearts, calm the raging storm, heal every disease, wipe away secret tears, and transform us into His beautiful bride.
Your challenges don’t define who you are before the Lord, neither is your circumstance too difficult for him to fix. The devil always tries to weigh us down with discouraging thoughts, you know what? You’ve heard enough of the devil’s ugly music. Halt! Put on your confident amour and talk back at the devil: I serve a powerful God, the creator of the heavens and earth, I’ve made up my mind allowing Him to take the center of my life and I believe he has everything under control and won’t disappoint me. Therefore, I smile in expectation of a breakthrough.
God has never failed, trust in Him confidently. Fix your gaze on Him, and continually draw strength from His words. Be reassured that God is in control.
