‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts (Zechariah 4:6 KJV).
It is human nature to want to “sort things out.” We know what we want to achieve, and how we’ll achieve it; tackling a situation or problem with our own preconceived ideas. Then we battle with the issues in an effort to reach the desired outcome which, more than often, ends up with “battle fatigue.” Tired, exhausted and downcast, with bloodied faces and torn clothes, we collapse and wonder we we’ve gone wrong.
We need to learn to relinquish control to God. Our obsession with control just causes too many “casualties” on life’s battlefield. We need to let go and let God… Today is the day to stand back and let God take over – He’s got it all “sorted.”
Prayer: Father God, I confess that I rely so much on my own power and usually then make a mess of things. Please forgive me… Please come and take control. I stand back Lord – please take over in totality.
