Let’s face it, as much as we want to be on top of things, there’s just some things that’s out of our control. Sure we can take precautionary measures, there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, however nothing is guaranteed. One thing is for certain though, God is real and He is all powerful. Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
Quick testimony. Three weeks ago I was in church. With my heart and mouth I was praising God, but my mind was stuck on an issue that I felt was hopeless. My mind kept going before God saying, “I can’t. I can’t. I can’t.”
Remind you that although I was doubting my abilities in the natural, my soul was continuously praising our supernatural God. The more I praised God, the less the issue pressed me, and as I praised Him even more, it was like I (my abilities and my way of thinking) was being peeled off of me. It was as if I was a banana, and God was peeling that layer of I off of me, until it was no longer I but He who was revealed in me. Sometimes we just don’t realize the goodness on the inside of us! In that moment when I realized that it was no longer I, but Christ at work in me, I knew He could do anything through me, all I had to do is believe!
Maybe you’re like I was, feeling like a banana, with peelings of self doubt covering up the God in you. Maybe you’re dealing with something else. Your peelings could be anxiety, depression, heartbreak, sickness or insecurity. I want you to know that the answer to your issues aren’t in your capabilities, it’s in God’s power! Yet praise Him!
Praise Him through what you go through, and watch Him pull away all those things that’s hindering you, until you recognize the God in you! His Word says that “He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20). Come out of that I mindset, which causes anxiety and hopelessness. When you are in Christ, there’s no longer I, but Christ who lives in me. ❤️
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
