“Watch how your life changes when you allow the Hand of God to direct your steps”~TB
I’ll admit, when I get a plan in my head, I’m stubborn enough to bust down doors to make it happen. However, as I listen to and apply God’s teachings into my life, I realize that He’s not asking me to forge my own agenda, but rather simply follow Him. It’s taken me a while to wrap my head around this. After relenting, I discovered how effortless it’s been to walk behind Him instead of trying to be in front. I thank God for his patience in dealing with a stubborn child like myself!
Without the hand of God, our efforts are futile and worthless. Ironically in life, we’re told that “we need to make it happen”. I would argue that while perseverance and grit are necessary, operating on His instructions will give us results far better than we could have imagined. That said, following His will is not without its trials. To be perfectly honest, in the beginning, you will face opposition and it will be fierce. However, it’s just a smokescreen to scare you off of the right path. How else do you think evil works? Friends we cannot forget that this world is temporary and only a blip in comparison to eternity.
Question of the day
Are you going to allow yourself to be guided by the Hand of God or are you content with banging your head against the wall?
