God is my light.
It is His job to dispel darkness for me.
God is my salvation.
It is His job to provide for my needs.
God is my stronghold.
It is His job to keep me safe.
If God is my Light, Salvation and Stronghold, then why am I so concerned about warfare, needs and safety? Do I think He is not enough to fulfill those roles for me? Do I think that I have to help Him out by spending my energy to assure they are done well?
If I could just let go - let God do His job in my life, I would lose my need to fear. Gone.
When trouble runs at me, I could run at it with boldness. When people make me crazy, I could stand still and not duck out. When war breaks out in my life, I could take a nap and still be confident.
If I could just let go - let God do His job, I would lose my need to fear. Gone.
I would be free to put my focus where my heart is;
To stare at His beauty until He unveils something new,
To chat and ask questions until I'm fully expressed,
To live in a habitation with God and never leave.
Friends. Consider this. When we find ourselves without time to enjoy God's presence, it could be because we are multi-tasking unnecessarily, trying to accomplish both God’s job and our own in our lives.
What if I told you that you don't have to worry about warfare, needs or safety today? What kind of fun would you throw yourself into instead of worrying about those things?
God is my Light. He is my salvation. He is my safe place. He is good at His job. I can let go. You can too.
Let's let go.
Let God be God.
Then … we will be free to put our focus where our heart is and enjoy the ride.
