I thought I had to micromanage my life or it'd go to hell in a handbasket. Second guessing and believing He can fail to keep our path. It's not possible!
For the Christian there are no true intimate relationships apart from being in Christ. When all of our relationships are in Christ, then all of our knowing is of Christ.
There's only ONE relationship. We connect with people all the time, but even with all these connections, there is only ONE relationship in them all—GOD.
Life's to be lived in the moment. Truly this moment is all I have. Only in the present moment can we experience our place of union and relationship with God.
In my quiet times with God do I have a shopping list that has to be filled by the Great Grocer in the sky and my payment is whatever gyrations He requires.
Christ made it so that He would speak Life through us. The Spirit anoints my life and then He can bring forth words that deliver His Life.
There has to be a beating heart behind His words we deliver or they are just words formed together making up sentences.
Our life’s power will always be within our YES to God. This is our way into the Kingdom, a path full of YES’s to God.
So here is the ease of the Christian life. ALL God’s promises have been fulfilled in the Life of His Son.
What if we simply, whole-heartedly opened our lives up to God when He poised something to us? It's as easy as YES!
When people meet us, do they meet our need or Jesus? When we walk through the world, is it “Christ” or “me” they see?
I might not be able to manhandle God nor force His limitations but He’s still my Abba. He's in control and even if I don’t like it, I’m still safe in His safety.
