It’s been on my heart for a while to make this post; a post about freedom. A post for you, who’s heart will unmistakably always remain somewhat hardened, but can unmistakably always become softer. A post about becoming free from the restrictions our world puts on us that force us to harden our hearts from God. But what if you throw away all the bad stuff for a second, and you become vulnerable. And in a time of vulnerability you say yes to God, you let him sit in the front seat of your life, what can he do with you then? What journey will he bring you on? That, is what this post is about.
Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10 NIV
Sometimes, I need to repeat verses again and again aloud to feel the sometimes hidden intensity of them. This is one of them. “be still and know that I am your God, be STILL and KNOW that I am your GOD!”, Don’t allow yourself to be fooled by the facade of simplicity this verse gives off, all of God’s words are so full of power and purpose. God wants us to be still, to surrender to Him, to stop trying so hard to live in this world alone and start trying to live in this world with Him by your side. God can take each instability in your life and do magical things with them. He, puts joy in EVERYTHING.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
Your path is His. He made it for you. He constructed it for your success. But don’t forget that you have a part to play in this, you chose to accept God into your life, but to act this choice out you have to begin to allow him to guide you. Don’t allow your heart to become hardened, but rather let it become soft in your vulnerability towards Him. Know He is faithful, have trust in His loyalty to His own child. I promise, He will remain faithful. He will remain good. He will remain steadfast in love. Because He, Jesus, is love. Give Him your worries, give Him your anger, give Him your love, and see what He can do with it.
Thank you so much for reading this message today, and I hope that it compels you to grow more faithful on your journey with God.
See you next time!
