Put your hands in the hands of the man

Did you ever wonder why things just don’t seem to be going your way? You keep praying and making promises…telling God how you are going to live if he would just get you out of the mess you seem to always find yourself in. Well maybe, he is just waiting for you to get out of the way. I don’t mean getting yourself together before you come to God, but I mean seeking Him first. God wants us to go to Him first and to stop trying to figure it out on our own as he instructed in Matthew 6:33. You won’t be able to do it alone.

If we ask God to increase in us, how cup will over flow and we will have to decrease as we learn in John 3: 29-30. So, stop trying to do it yourself. As He tells us in Matthew 11:30, His yoke is easy and His burden is light. We tend to make it more difficult for ourselves. 

As this year comes to an end, reflect back on 2007. See if you can identify at least one time when you felt like God had forgotten about you or wasn’t hearing your prayers. Then look at how things could have gone differently if you would have just sought Him out first and allowed Him to take control. God wants to love on us and show us the way. We just have to stop being control freaks and allow Him to do what only the Almighty God can do. 

Happy New Year!
2008 ~ The year of YOUR breakthrough!
