Relying on God
Fri Jan 5, 2018 08:48

“Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.” C.S. LEWIS

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing oil.” ISAIAH 10:27 NKJV

You can accept Jesus Christ into you life once and have no need to continually do it again and again. Oh we might rededicate our life or make a new commitment again and again, but when we first believe in the forgiveness extended to us by the Father through the Son Jesus, and the finished work of the cross, we don’t have to go back and re-believe again and again. Relying on God is different, if I don’t make a decision to rely on God each day I can find myself out there thinking that I can do and handle it all on my own. Of course my own strength and emotions always get tweaked when I come up short of what I thought I could do on my own. At these times I often find myself turning to God in prayer and asking that the burden be lifted from me. Surprisingly many times as soon as I turn it over the burden is lessened. Once the burden is lessened I get new insight and new light shed on the matter. Then with renewed strength and emotions that have been reinforced with spirituality, I am able to get back in the race, and work on the problem. I find the problems more often than not to be centered in the self-will, self-reliance, self-thought, self-seeking, self-contempt, self-pity, and just plain me. May I continue to turn my life over to One who can see beyond what I see. God is doing for me what I could not do for myself………………….wolf
