We want to be in charge, commanding, demanding. Do we have authority over evil or do we submit as unto the LORD.???. A question so many ask, with so many varied answers. When trouble, sickness and pain come at us again and again and...what do we do.??.
It is soooooo hard to rest, to be still and know that He is God. He is God, not me. It is hard to allow Him to pick up the pieces of our brokenness, allowing Him to heal, deliver and restore. It is hard to grasp that He is in the midst of our circumstances, "with God, all things are possible," that He will never leave us or forsake us and to hold on to and trust in His words: "all things work together for good...." We want to fix it, make it better, make it go away DO SOMETHING - ANYTHING but rest.!??!
But rest we must, for it is God' desire that we conform to the image of His Son. He loves us too much to allow us to remain in our fallen, faithless, faltering condition; taking charge, charging ahead, rushing in where angels fear to tread.
And God said to Moses: "Enough! Speak to Me no more of this matter." Deuteronomy 3:26
It was time for the old man, Moses, to die so the new man, Joshua, might live to serve the Living God. If we are born again, it is time....
I will attempt to walk out in my life what I know in my heart - one day at a time.
