Where is God in your heart?

It always happen...just when we want to trust the Lord and proclaim His lordship in our life, trials set in. It is will be in the form of pride, envy, busy schedule (the wanting to do more).

Pride and envy because it always seems that others is doing better than you. "Luckier" it seems. And because of that, the wanting to do more, to prove to others and perhaps truely yourself, that you have what it takes to make it too. Make it to what? the foundamental question is what matters to you.

Of course, we will be a liar if we deny the fact that material/emotional needs (having wealth, to retire early, choice of doing what we wanted); do not matters to us. Since we are living in a physical world where we are constantly in need of goods and services, we cannot be detach from money.

But all this chasing makes people lose their direction. Many are merely "floaters". Floating from schedule to schedule, month to month and year to year.

Where is God in your heart? Only when you need his blessings and protection?

Is He charting the direction of your life?

By letting Go and Letting God chart our life, we have to drop our control.

Our control of the situation, our control to justify everything in our life, our control to compare...By Letting Jesus be the Lord of our life means we have to lose our pride and envy.

By trusting in Him means trusting in His purpose which we will sometime never understand. Why He put us in a certain place and allowing certain things to happen. Why some people are more successful than us. By letting Him be King, we have to drop our 'Why'. We never ask a King why? We just obey knowing that all things work for good to those that love the Lord because He is a good Lord and King.

Not everything will work out the way you plan. Not even when you tried very hard.
But
We know who is in charge. God.
We know that He will chart out something good in your life if you let Him and not tried to change the course yourself.
We know that He will not test us beyond what we can bear.
We know by hiding his words in our heart we can resist those thoughts plant by the evil one.
We know that by praying, we are reaffirming that HIs will be done.
We know that by trusting in Him and not situation, He can lead us out of the wilderness. walk by faith and not by sight.
We know that we are loved by Him and are called to love.
We know that fear has no place in our heart, only love.
We know that we are the salt and light of the world and he has placed us for His purpose. He has a purpose for our talent no matter how limited it is.

We have to Let Go,Trust,Obey,Exalt,Meditate His Word,Give Thanks and Love.

Are we doing it?
