“Trust in the Lord your God with all your heart, do not depend on your own understanding”
Proverbs 3:5

I feel like this is a lesson I have been learning for a very, very, long time. And I’m sure I’ll keep re-learning it. Our God is faithful and merciful, full of grace. I know He is constantly teaching us lessons, day after day, hour after hour. So don’t lose hope! Stay strong! He is mighty to save. Trusting the Lord with ALL your heart is very difficult. I know I’m not the only one who thinks so. I know the Father has a plan, I know He is faithful, He wants me to have the desires of my heart, but why does He take so long? Because God’s timing is PERFECT, we can’t have what we want in our timing because we don’t see the full picture of our lives, we don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. So we have to trust, and know, that He is God, and He has everything under control!
God’s timing is perfect… We can’t depend on our own understanding, because He holds the world in His hands, He understands everything, so we can’t take matters into our own hands because He already has everything written down, in a perfect plan for us! Surrender to His will, He knows you.
Recently, I struggled with saying “ Your will be done, Your kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven. “
I just didn’t want to let it go, I didn’t think giving it to Him would make a difference, but it definitely does! This has been weeks of battling myself, and lots of prayer, letting stuff go, and giving myself completely, to Him.
How do we give ourselves? Our everything to God?
Three steps:
Get on your knees
That’s it. Pretty simple right? Not really, but it’ll be simple once you let go and let God. Every time you feel anxious, feel stressed, just stop and take deep breaths and pray! Thank Him for everything you have, ask Him for peace! And repeat over and over, “ Your will be done Father” , I believe He honors that. He wants us to stop worrying! He wants us to give it all to Him! He wants your ENTIRE life! The whole thing, give it all to Him. Read the word, the word has power! It strengthens you, builds you up, gives you peace, gives you wisdom and understanding, because that’s how He designed it. Our God is strong and mighty! He knows you, everything about you that people know and don’t know, He knows, and He already knew you would be who you are! Crazy right? He designed you in your mothers womb before you breathed your first breath, He knew your personality, your looks, your heart, the whole you. You have to fall in love with Yeshua! He is so amazing! You won’t feel peace unless you ask for it, unless you give your whole life completely, and wholly to Him. I had a dream the other day, about a little girl who we adopted, and she was possessed. And I was afraid of her. All she did was taunt me, and she would show me her real self, her scary face, the face of a demon. Know one in my family would believe me that there was something wrong with her. So I got tired of it, so I grabbed her from behind and pulled her head back by her head ( I know, sounds harsh ) and her face was revealed to my family! So we all started to pray over the demon. I had it in my hands, in a sack thing, and it couldn’t get free, but it kept moving. The whole house was shaking. The prayers weren’t working, so we all started screaming “ Yeshua!” Over and over until our voices started to crack. Then all of a sudden, Yeshua walks in. The room was still, and my family disappeared. The demon kept moving, but I wasn’t paying attention to it as much as before. Then Yeshua sat on a chair in front of me, and took the evil out of my hands. Then I just felt an overwhelming peace hit me, so I fell to my knees and just melted with peace inside and passed out.
There is some more to the dream, and I know that dreams don’t mean the literal things that you dreamed, everything represents something. But just having Yeshua in my dream, was really cool! I have never had something like that before. I have been a believer all of my life. I started out as a Christian, but I have been a Messianic for about 8 years now, and I don’t think I have ever noticed how much I really do love Yeshua, how much He has changed my life, how much I depend on Him to be there for me when the world is crashing down around me, He is there to lift me up again! He will let you walk upon the waters, but do you have faith that He will pull you out if the waves over take you? He might let you fall, but He will never EVER let you drown. That’s the love of the Father. You are, we are, His children. He loves us so much! He takes His time teaching us lessons, showing us the way! He fills us up with love, understanding, peace, wisdom, hope. He is always there for us, even when we can’t see the grand plan of our entire lives. But we can look to the Creator and have peace, that He is in control, He is working everything together for our good. Your will be done Father, Your kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven… – Liv
