Last week I mentioned not going on what it looks like well here we go let’s dive in.
T- ake you out of the equation.Our lives are designed with not only us in mind. You and I are blessed to get to influence others around us. Our lives and actions never usually affect only us and therefore an OMNIPRESENT, OMNISCIENT, OPNIPOTENT God is required.
R-elinquish to God what you can’t handle. If we are honest that’s a lot of things. This removes you as serving as your own God. Idolatry and pride can take one many forms.
U- nderstand the need to not lean on your own understanding of things. Your view can be manipulated by satan. God’s view is infinite and untouchable. This is why you can’t analyze things based on our limited knowledge. You likely have tunnel vision. Focusing only on what’s in front of you unable to see the other things around you.
S- ubmit under God’s authority and power. Submitting shows that your faith in God is intact.
T- ake God at His Word. He’s the only one with a perfect track record. He is to be trusted.
for we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7 ESV
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
John 14:27 ESV
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
Hebrews 11:6 ESV
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6–7 ESV
I’m not sure about your week, but I found myself fighting for my focus on God’s Word. Distractions have been prevalent, and discouragement has been waiting to see if I’d accept its invitation and advances to ruin my peace. Tears have been flooding my face some days. However, God is still God ladies. He is bigger than anything we will ever face so let’s Trust God as we cry and repeat. God bless you.
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58 ESV
