“God is using me from His great personal perspective, and all He asks of me is that I trust Him. When I stop telling God what I want, He can freely work His will in me without any hindrance. He simply asks me to have absolute faith in Him and His goodness” (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest).
Instead of me asking God to work in me, maybe I need to stop and look at what He’s already doing in and around me. Perhaps I need to look for what God is doing in my midst and join Him instead of asking Him to sanctify and bless my own plans.
In nearly every circumstance, we’re tempted to try and help God out instead of trusting unconditionally. The trusting part is always more difficult than the doing.
Starting tomorrow, maybe you and I need a little more trust and a little less trying, a little more faith and a lot less fretting. That’s a good place to start.
