We ALL, whether we like to admit it or not, have THAT THING that brings us to our knees. It is a place where we find ourselves ARGUING with reality…trying to push against what IS, hoping that it really isn’t. One thing I know for sure is that when we argue against reality, WE WILL SUFFER! A lot of times we are looking at the circumstances of the moment and it seems overwhelming. We begin looking for quick fix or a door to be able to escape from, and if we are not careful, we will make lifetime decisions based on a moment of problems.
Sometimes, just sometimes, God will create a problem that we cannot fix. God will wreck your plans when He see’s that your plans are about to wreck you. He will then put you in a position where it looks like DEFEAT is the ONLY option, so HE can the Hero, to come in and save the day. He wants to woo us, protect us, and to love us, to hold us, and to cup our faces. It is a picture painted so beautifully in the Song of Solomon:
His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me.
Can you imagine the sound of His heart as He pulls us closer to Him and further away from the things of this world? Listen…as long as you are holding onto THAT THING God will not touch it! So take a deep breath…and LET IT GO!
