When we realize that we are truly incapable of controlling life, we can surrender our will to God’s will. It may be a matter of finally saying we trust Him. This will open the door so that we may experience the fullness of all God’s will and His plan He has for us. After all, He is our Creator and our protector, our Father and He has a perfect plan of us when we surrender our will and let Him orchestrate our lives to reach His plan and will through us.
Be not moved and know that I am God, How can we know it’s God?
“…and know that I am God” denotes recognition, acknowledgement, and answering God. First, we must know that God is God, the one and only Supreme Being who created all the heavens and earth (ref,Genesis 1*1).
We can know Him by having an intimate relationship with Him. That does not come from knowing about Him, but rather getting to personally know Him by what He says He is (in His Holy Word, the Bible), recognizing the things He does in our lives, and by way of His Holy Spirit who comes to guide and comfort us. In John 14*26, Jesus says “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you”.
When we read the Bible, we will learn to recognize the way God talks to us, the kinds of things He says, and the merciful love He offers.
Our God is……
> Omniscient – all knowing
> Omnipresent – universal presence at the same time
> Omnipotent – all powerful
> Holy- Faithful, and Sovereign
> Infinite – without measure, forever
Be still and know that I am God.
Here are just a few of the things God says about you in the Bible:
>I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. (ref,Proverbs 8*17)
>Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this.(ref,Psalm 37*4-5)
>He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (ref,Psalm 147*3)
>Cast all your anxiety on him because He cares for you.(ref,1 Peter 5:7)
>The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.(ref,Psalm 34*18)
It’s important to believe God because He has only one motive: love. His love is unconditional, honest, and everlasting. You will never be able to comprehend how much God loves you. and blessed you are with the riches of Heaven,
Maybe you feel insignificant because you don’t measure up to the world’s standards. But don’t believe the world. Believe God.
He made you the way you are for a reason. You’re unique. Not another of the 6 billion people on this planet has your fingerprints or DNA. There’s only one you because God wanted it that way.
So often we’re influenced by people who want to sell us things. They flatter us or make us feel inadequate so we’ll buy their product or service. But God’s not selling a thing. Scripture says He knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb. God cares about you so much that He even knows how many hairs you have on your head. Nothing in your life escapes His notice, no matter how trivial it may seem. By the way He is your Father, He loves you more than limited thoughts of others. He made you to be success.
BELIEVE HIM ONLY, NOT WHAT OTHERS THINK…..
How the heart is the place of true belief not just the mind.
“If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes resulting in righteousness.” (ref,Rom 10*9-10)
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.”
The importance of what you say or do in your heart, as it reflects the real you.“If you should say in your heart, ‘These nations are greater than I; how can I dispossess them?’” (ref,Deut 7*17)
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (ref,Mt 5*28
(ref,Mark 11*23)“Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.”
This is why we are told to guard our heart with right thinking and acting.
(ref,Ephesians 6*14) “Put on the breastplate of righteousness.
How true forgiveness comes from the heart
(ref,Mt 18*35) “My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.
Good advice comes in(ref,James 4*8)
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
