The words of scriptures we know in memory, that’s knowledge. But we don’t know the words in our heart, that’s life. It’s not in our blood pumping and motivating us to live according to trust as we should. Just where am I going with this?
What are we struggling with in our life? Why are we stressing out? What makes us impatient? Why are we out of control? Why must we be in control of everything and everyone? Why do we worry? Why are we anxious, depressed, and angry? Why are we co-dependent on people or things?
You see, we have already made the most critical decision for our life that we will ever make. That was to believe JESUS is the CHRIST and to receive HIS forgiveness and salvation. But most of us stopped with just that and we are no better off than we were before we received our gift of salvation. We never discovered that our life has nothing to do with our human efforts but has everything to do with the might and power of JESUS. In every circumstance, we are to stand still in Esperance because of the might of JESUS and not of the might of ourselves.
Most often than not when we go forward of our own might and power things do not go smoothly. But when we wait and allow JESUS to show off for us, we will get a better return than we could have ever hoped for.
Zechariah 4:6; Hag. 1:1-2; Hos. 1:7
