Are you one of those people who manages everything for everyone? You’re probably really good at it. Hopefully you get paid well for it. But there’s a balance between managing everything and trusting God.
Do you get white-knuckled when it looks like your best plans are falling apart? That’s called fear—fear that you are losing control. The enemy loves that. God hates it.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (Matthew 6:33)
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; (Proverbs 3:5)
There is a way to give it all over to God and still do what you need to do. But it requires faith. It requires that you will not stress when stuff starts to go bad. That’s when you turn to God and say, “You said you would take care of this, so I am trusting you.”
Keep your peace. God has your back. The kingdom of God is about righteousness, peace and joy. If you can live there, no matter what happens, you’ll be ok. You can have peace when problems come at you. But if you refuse to trust God, you’ll be filled with fear and stress. That’s the opposite of what God wants for you. It’s going to be ok. Let go.
