In life when we are faced with challenges, our first reaction is often “ok, how do I deal with this?” We try to work out and calculate the best formula to solve our issues; but we fail miserably. We realize that things are not in our hands to fix, we have to take them to the Carpenter, who turns a dead wood into a chair, where kings and queens seat.
So today like me, have you been trying to solve things with your own mind and your own strength? Let it go, let God take care of it for you. Its in the best hands possible. I have learnt that I need to stop striving, I need to stop laboring to see if things would work. Its like trying to use a certain machine you just bought and you have no idea how to use it, but you can’t be bothered to read the manual too; so you keep on sweating, trying to fix it and make it work, but the key is just to follow the Manual and you will be fine. SO let us read the greatest Manual of life- the Bible, if we listen to His voice and let Him guide us, what seems like a mountain before our eyes will be brought low as a valley.
“Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.” – Isaiah.40:4
“All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.” – Isaiah.64:6
“10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.” – Psalm.46:10-11
