Stop struggling, stop trying to do it on your own, with your own power. Be like a trusting child who has no doubt that her Father will see and respond to her need.
He is so much bigger, so much stronger, so much more loving and compassionate than you can understand. Do you know what this means? The “God” of your head does not match the God of the Bible, who is the Most High.
He says, “You struggle inside your mind with a conception of me that is not true. Be still. And know me. Know that I am God.”
Stop expecting progress. Stop interfering in his work. Just be calm and trust Him.
Lord, in my own sin, I’ve deceived even myself into thinking that I am in control of our relationship. Help me accept your outreached hand and trust.
