Do you ever feel like you are dealing with something that can’t be changed? Like your life is at a stand still? Like you are working towards something and there is just no moving forward?
Everyone will feel like this at times, and the only solution is God. Sometimes the desires of our hearts and the plan for our lives don’t match up to God’s plan. I cannot reiterate that enough. Our plans for our life are in no one else’s hands other than our Creator’s. If you’re like me, and have a controlling personality, it’s hard to remember that at times. But, we must remember that we are not in control. Of anything. Nothing we have is our own. Everything in this world is God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says, “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” This means that Jesus paid the price for our sins. We are not our own. John 5:30 says, “I can do nothing on my own. I judge as God tells me. Therefore, my judgment is just, because I carry out the will of the one who sent me, not my own will.”
If you want peace in your life, you need to stop trying to control things that you were never intended to control. If you have trouble with this, ask God to change your heart so that you can see things through his eyes.
