Submit to God; Resist the Devil and He will Flee.

resist the devil and he will flee

Have you ever felt that if one more responsibility were to get laid at your feet that you would implode? Life happens and responsibilities sometimes seem to overtake us. It leaves us vulnerable, tired, and weak, and unless we learn how to cope with the added onslaught of situations that we will be required to endure in our lifetime, we will feel forever defeated.

How often have you said, “I just can’t take it anymore!”? We are all faced with those times, but I’m here today to encourage someone with five simple words: Give Them All to Jesus.

Are you tired of chasing pretty rainbows?

Are you tired of spinning round and round?

Wrap up all those shattered dreams of your life

And at the feet of Jesus, lay them down.

Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus

Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, and broken toys.

Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus

And He will turn your sorrows into joy.

He never said you’d only see sunshine,

He never said there would be no rain.

He only promised a heart full of singing

About the very thing that once brought pain.

 Matthew 11:28
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

You may feel that you are losing control of yourself and instead of feeling peace and security in your walk with God, you have allowed things to become the enemies that you must conquer to keep your sanity. Never take on more ministry than you can support in prayer. Sometimes it’s important to step back and take a deep breath and be reminded of your purpose in doing all that you do. You may ask yourself, who is getting the glory for this? If it isn’t God, then maybe it is time to rethink your priorities.

Everything that I do, say, feel, should be filtered through God’s plan for my life. I can tell when I start to get off course in his will. I may struggle, or get super fatigued, maybe even discouraged so much that it feels that no matter how much effort I give to a task, it still seems to be empty of satisfaction. Could it be, that I am placing too much emphasis on the task, and not enough effort on the Lord who promises to direct our steps?

While rowing a boat requires great effort when you are rowing with the current, it still is not as hard as it would be, if you had decided to follow your own course, and row against the current.

God is in control of all situations even when we think that our world is falling apart. Family may reject you, friends may turn away, you may get disappointed by something someone has said that brought up the past hurts and mistakes, or you may not have a care in the world; but God is still in control and he is working out all things for our good.

What should we be do? Keep praying, and believing God. If we are wrong we must learn to forgive and make it right; if we are right in our eyes, we must still forgive and seek peace. Life is too short to harbor ill feelings against others. Do the best you can to make it right and then, let’s trust God to know what is the best for us and he will restore unto us the joy of our salvation.
