How To Stop Striving and Resting in God?

WOW! What a mighty God we serve. So many of us are always are trying to straighten things out. Fix someone, only to simply weary others and worry ourselves to be a mess. BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD. Your persistent nagging and trying to do everything on your own, when you finally stop and say God I can’t do this anymore on my own, God will intervene and do IT! What a powerful, precise, and perfectly penned word for so many of us. Have a blessed day everyone!! 

In the midst of a heartbreaking trial that you maybe going through, God clearly gave me the verse from Psalm 46: “Be still and know that I am God” ~Psalm 46:10

Maybe you have been doing everything you knew to do, everything  you could do, in order to fix this painful situation – and then came the Word of God: “Be still, cease striving… know that I am God.”

God’s Word is clear. We couldn’t fix it, and we need to stop trying. You had wept. You had prayed. You had tried to make things right. You had searched your heart, rehearsed all your failings, and experienced the grief of them all. Yet nothing had worked. The situation hadn’t changed; the incredible pain had not gone away. Now I hope it is clear. If you were to walk in faith, if you were to live by faith, you had to cease striving. You were to shut your mouth and quit trying to teach, to instruct, to straighten out, and you were to know God. He sits as sovereign on His throne; He hasn’t moved. And you haven’t seen “the rest of the story.” Your part in this situation was simply “to be” rather than “to do.” Whatever happens, you need to know that you are to continue to rest, to relax and to remember that He is God. You are to walk by faith and remember that you are not God, that you cannot fix the situation. Your responsibility is simply to trust and obey and to be what He wants you to be. You are to embrace truth and to live by it.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

  1. Every time I say, That’s it! I give up!” I can sense the Lord say, “Whew! It’s about time.” 😉
