“Listen to me, descendants of Jacob,
all you who remain in Israel.
I have cared for you since you were born.
Yes, I carried you before you were born.
4 I will be your God throughout your lifetime—
until your hair is white with age.
I made you, and I will care for you.
I will carry you along and save you
Isaiah 64: 3-4
You have a control issue, it’s the reason you always have a Plan B and the reason you live in anxiety and fear. You want to control everything because you are afraid that things will go wrong. The way they went wrong in the past.
The past…. that fear of the past repeating is the ROOT of your control issue. You can not live in fear nor make decisions based on fear. That
control issue that in the end always messes things up and gets you in trouble, stems from the fear and lack of trust in God.
The pain you lived has misconstrued the truth and makes you think God was at fault. Pain has lied to you and told you God doesn’t care or is a bad Father. Pain distorted your identity and God’s identity in your life.
Today I challenge you to take it back. Take back your identity and see God for who He is. Be brave and surrender. IT is not an act of cowardliness but rather of courage. It takes valor and bravery to surrender your control, fear and self to God. Trust, in His hands you will be safe. Trust Him, He will take care of you.
That doesn’t mean it will all go smoothly and you will never cry again, but He promises to hold you. Read the verse again, and this time believe Him.
Today as you pray change it up. From God I want to ___________ to father, what do you want me to do today? Do you want me to ______________? He will answer; and when He does listen and obey.
LET GO AND BE FREE!
