I was led to this message for everyone this evening. We create much of our own unhappiness we create much of our own frustration by constantly resisting and fighting what’s going on in our lives. We don’t understand why our prayers aren’t being answered; why things aren’t changing sooner we end up with all this unrest and uneasiness on the inside. But I want challenge you tonight to learn to relax and to just accept where you are it may not be a great place we all have things we want to see change, things we want to see happen sooner, but if we really believe God is in control, if we really believe he is directing our steps then each one of us is exactly where we’re suppose to be and we shouldn’t be resisting it all the time we shouldn’t be fighting and struggling with it turn it all over to God.
Our attitude should be God I’m trusting you I know that you’re in control of my life and I may not understand everything that’s happening but, God I believe you have my best interest at heart so I’m not going to go around resisting and struggling, I’m going to relax and start enjoying my life, that will take all the pressure off of you.
The Bible says “to be still and know that I am God”, you need to get at peace of where you are right now. Things may not be perfect you may have some areas you need to improve in, but as long as we’re living upset, worried stressed out we’re just tying the hands of almighty God.
If you can just get to a place of peace then God can fight your battles for you, then He can turn those situations around. The scriptures says “those who have believed enter into the rest of God”, being in God’s rest means that you have a problem but you’re trusting God to take care of it. It means that you have a situation that you don’t understand but you’re not constantly trying to figure it out. It means you have a dream in your heart, but you’re not in a hurry you’re not frustrated because it hasn’t come to pass yet. In other words when you’re really in God’s rest you know that God has you in the palm of his hand and no matter where you are you accept it as the place God wants you to be right now.
I’m not saying God wants you to stay there but if you’re really trusting Him if you really believe He’s in control then wherever you are either good or bad is exactly where you’re suppose to be. We have to understand that God has promised He will use whatever comes into our lives for our good he’ll use that difficult to do a work in you. It may not be good but if you keep the right attitude he’ll use it for your good. Just remember where you are today is exactly where God’s want you to be learn to embrace the place that you are that will take all the pressure off of you.
