Don’t Fight, Trust

Will you let God touch the parts of your heart that hurt? The parts YOU try to hold together? It is made to break open–and it is made to become whole. God doesn’t breaks hearts, but He will mends them.  What you know and what you remember and what you predict will happen next are largely determined by how open you are to possibility–or not. What you believe determines how you heal. Do you believe you matter? Do you believe it is worth spending time with God for the purpose of healing? This week, take a step toward God. Open up your heart and let His armor defend you against any threat. God’s Word, hope, and love will shield you so, as He heals you, you have nothing to fear!

Don’t Fear Change

It’s time to hear God’s words above and release to Him our fear of change and need for control.  Take time today to ask Jesus to reveal how He wants you to trust Him in those areas. Also ask Him for courage to surrender every single area of your life to Him. Don’t hold back and ask Him to free you from your pride, so you can lose your life and let Him lead you however He wants, while YOU trust that leading!

Experience Freedom

Start putting aside some time today–even setting a timer for 5 minutes is a great place to start–and asking God what is blocking you from experiencing freedom in your life.  Then repent and confess the areas of you life where you are not experiencing freedom. Search your heart, and journal about those places where you are living enslaved instead of living free.  Ask God to forgive you for trying to be “enough” on your own and then surrender every area of your heart where you’ve tried to be self-sufficient.

God’s Love

While God loves us with abundant love, He does not force us into experiencing it or even acknowledging it. You see, even though Holy Spirit lives in us from the moment we first accept Christ in our hearts, we only experience the freedom He offers to the extent that we surrender, receive God’s love, and trust Him completely.  Are you doing that?
