There are times that those dreams that I planned 10 years ago is too far from where I am right now because I didn’t include God in my plan. I didn’t include Him when I am dealing with difficult situations because I thought that I can do it on my own and everything will be alright. Until I found myself broken and helpless. I should be more honest with myself that I cannot handle every difficult situations that I have.
So Jesus said to the Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32 ESV
This doesn’t mean that I am too dependent with God but its simply because we both have a relationship together that no enemy can destroy even my dreams. Truly, we can do nothing without Him. That without His word, it would be difficult for us to live this life we have. We are similar to travelling a new destination without a map. We are similar to a woman who is so much in love that she is blinded with the truth.
Sometimes, being broken and helpless is a blessing. Because brokenness will lead us to humility and obedience. Obedience to do His will and our mission. It will only take guts to say, “Jesus, I need you right now. I’m a mess. I am tired of wearing this mask. Can you please come to me now?”
But He gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6 ESV
Are there areas in your life that you still didn’t allow Jesus to takeover? Or are you still afraid to be honest to tell Him everything? If so, I urge you to come closer to Jesus. Pray about it to Him. And let Him takeover your life.
In His grip of grace,
