Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/05/13

This week’s scripture is from Proverbs:

Jesus Christ 4“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him …”
                  (Proverbs 3:5-6a)

The giants, the trials and troubles in our life, are often bigger than we are, bigger than we can handle, but they are not bigger than our Lord. Too often we try to take them on alone when we need to get out of the way and let the Lord handle them. We need to surrender ourselves to Him, surrender to His authority, surrender our resistance, surrender and wait upon the Lord, get out of His way and let Him cut down the giants in our life. He commands us to give up our burdens to Him, to give up our interpretation of events,  to give up our weariness, to give up our striving and let Him, let Him take care of us, let Him resolve the situation, let His mercy and grace surround us, and just trust Him, trust Him, fully and completely.

May the Lord give you the grace to submit to Him in all circumstances and be at peace.
