When we know God, He reveals to us our identity, His ways and His dreams. That way, it becomes much easier for us to surrender control into His hands.
He is our origin
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them. Male and female he created them.”Genesis 1:27
When we want to know more about a fish, we need to dive into the sea and understand more about how the sea works. Just studying the fish won’t tell us much.
It’s like that in our lives too. If we want to know more about ourselves, we need to delve into God first and in Him we will find answers. For if we dive within ourselves to find ourselves, we will lose ourselves more and more. We don’t have the answers inside us, they come from our Creator.
Our paths and the steps we take should not be based on our own experiences, but on our origin. That origin is God. It was in Him that we were born even before we came into the world and it is in Him that we exist.
Nothing stops Him
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.”Romans 8:26
What I can do with my strength would not take me as far as God took me. What you can do in your own strength will never get you where God wants to take you. You would not approve yourself to be where the Lord wants you to be.
God’s plans often don’t make sense as we walk. But when we recognize who we are in Him, we will walk with the certainty that, even if we don’t feel empowered, the path He is leading us through will empower us.
When we are in the center of God’s will, if something or someone tries to stop us, they are not just trying to stop us, but to stop GOD. And no one can stop Him, nothing stops a word the Lord has released.
He acts, we react
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”Romans 8:28
God is not reacting to your life. He is acting.
Only reacts to a situation that does not have control and needs to solve the unexpected. Surprise brings the need for reaction. At all times God is at work. He has already given you your identity and the essence you have in Him. He also hands you the knowledge of who you will become in Him.
Don’t think that all He is doing is watching and figuring out how to react to what happens. He already knows tomorrow and is acting daily. The Lord is way ahead of us but, knowing that, we shouldn’t run to try to gain control and take it out of His hands.
The more we know His Sovereignty, the more we deliver. We must completely surrender control to the One who has given us identity and strength.
