As I sit here and ponder on the things that have happened in my life, I sit back and think “Have I always heard God’s voice about the decisions I have made?” If I haven’t then why did I do those things? The answer is simple because I wanted to control the decisions made in my life and I refused to trust God. WOW, did I just say that? Yes I did and admittance is the first step to recovery.
I find that I am not patient when it comes to listening for His voice or even trusting Him to see me through. I want to take control and fix it myself and in the end God will win either way. There are a lot of times it comes as a smack in the face or a big fat I told you so.
I am reminded by what Paul tells us in Galatians 5:22 -23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Patience is one of the fruits but why is it so easy not to have patience and why is it so easy to want to control our lives and not listen for God’s voice and not to trust Him.
Our Flesh is what stops us, the enemy is what stops us. That is why we need to put on the full armor of God and stay in His word and always listen for His voice, His direction, His guidance and most importantly, that is why we need to trust Him, trust that He will see us through no matter what we are going through, no matter what mountains are in our way, King Jesus can move them.
When I am having these kind of days, I always listen to Chonda Pierce’s God Loves You, because it reminds me that no matter the mountain, no matter the issue, God Loves Me. He loves me even if I don’t listen to His voice or even if I don’t place my trust in Him. I leave you today with this video, I hope it blesses you like it does me.
