Ever have a large pile of yarn that got tangled? You can sit for hours trying to untangle the mess and someone else comes in, picks up one piece and pulls and the whole thing straightens out. Maddening, isn’t it?
Stress and strain can do us in, but another’s perspective can change everything. You may be staring at a pile of bills that you don’t know how you’re going to pay. Perhaps a doctors report that looks hopeless or a pink slip that says your job ends on Friday. Whatever you’re facing, God wants you to step away into His arms and see it through His eyes.
“So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you!” Hebrews 10:35 NLT
How much time do we waste trying to figure out things we weren’t meant to? God wants us to rest in His ability, not our own. I wonder how much further we’d be if we’d learn that simple act of pausing to adjust our thinking?
Can’t you see that God is standing next to us with outstretched arms waiting to carry our load. Let’s not insist on carrying it alone anymore. Turn to Him, place it all in His hands and say this, “I will rest in you until you tell me what to do with it. I will not come out of this place of rest.”
Do you feel the weight shift from you to Him? Ephesians 3:20 NLT says, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”
Today, I’ll let You take care of me!
