The problem is, we usually want to be the manager of our own lives, and so we argue and disagree with God.
We think we know what’s best.
The reason you’re under a lot of stress is that you’re constantly fighting God in your mind—“I know God says to do this, but I want to do that instead!”
Every morning when you wake up, you have a decision to make: Who’s going to be in charge of your life?
Who’s going to be in control—you or God?
Who’s going to call the shots—you or God?
Every day, moment-by-moment, you are making this decision.
When you choose to make yourself the manager of your own life, it causes conflict, confusion, and stress.
It’s easy to be consumed by problems and difficulties in life and become ingrown and only think about our own situation.
But Psalm 37:3 says, “Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.”
When you’re in a time of need, sow a seed.
If you need happiness, make someone happy.
If you need help, help someone else.
Have a problem?
Help solve someone else’s problem.
When you not only trust God but do good to others, that’s the seed God will use to bring a harvest in your own life.
As you refresh others, God will refresh you.
JESUS IS LORD
