Today my daughter (10) and I had a rough morning. She complained about wearing a t-shirt, complained about putting on a sweater and even complained about what she wanted for breakfast. It was very frustrating, she was resisting everything that was good for her, but right in my frustration, I thought of how we as children of God can show that same resistance to God’s protection and provision. It’s pretty hard to care for someone that is resisting you. The t-shirt was because it was chilly out, the sweater was just a layer to keep warm in class and breakfast was to nourish her body. All good things for her, but still she resisted. Maybe because she couldn’t see ahead the way that I did or believing that this was for her protection. How are you resisting God’s protection and provision? You will not always understand the twist and turn that your life may take, but ALWAYS trust; like a good Father He loves you, He is there for you and is protecting you. Relax your resistance and Trust!
Repeat After Me…Just like a kid, I do not have all of the answers. I trust in God’s love, His mercy and His grace for me, knowing that through the dark times and light I am constantly protected. I have no need for resistance…. I am Relaxed!!! Now Believe it and Know it!!!
