I truly feel God was trying to gain a genuine connection with me this year to fully believe and understand this concept when He allowed a lot of these circumstances to take place this year.
Let's be honest, many of us like playing those pseudo Christian games until we find ourselves in the fire.
Not sure what I'm speaking of, well let me give you some good examples that I was also guilty of myself.
Familiar with these heavily used sayings:
“We are more than conquerors”.
“God will make a way out of no way”.
“God said the weapons shall form but they will not prosper”.
“There’s nothing impossible for God”. (My personal favorite!)
Mind you, each one of these statements are true.
However, this is easy to say or believe when you’re not the one going through it at the current moment.
Better yet, it's easier to say those things over yourself when you feel like it's still within your control to fix yourself.
For me, I think I got too comfortable in my relationship with God.
It was like I could only trust Him with very specific aspects of my life, but not all of them.
I had a very bad tendency of placing Him in a very small, familiar and routine box of faith that I moved Him in and out of for my convenience.
But when my back was against the wall I had to ask myself, “Do you really believe that God is BIGGER than ALL YOUR PROBLEMS?”.
“I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”
So right from the beginning God pretty much called my bluff.
He reiterated to me, that as much as I challenged others to believe this notion, that I myself was going to have to genuinely believe it for myself!
And believe me this was no easy task.
While I knew God was capable of doing the impossible, the logical side of my brain wanted to reject this truth.
Some days clinging to this faith was easy.
Other days it was quite difficult.
There was an internal battle between my natural and spiritual being fighting for just peace of mind and patience during this entire year.
However, when I truly let it go - which was a conscious and daily decision I had to make each and every day - God was able to go to work on my behalf!
Remember He's our Creator.
He hand picked and uniquely designed each of us.
Meaning, the One who created us knows just how much we can or cannot handle and will allow us to face difficulties according to the way He specifically designed us.
In other words, the game is rigged in our favor!
We win because we are His and He is ours.
Now genuinely wrap your head and heart around that!
