Psalm 55:22 says, “Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall”.
What do you do when it’s not working? I think your first question would be, “Can you define what “it” is?” I most sure can, in broad terms of course. “It” can be a relationship, a strategy- business or raising your kid or a work strategy. “It” can be your brain when you are having one of those moments when your brain does not want to cooperate with your intended level of productivity. “It” can be managing your chocolate cake cravings or managing your finances. It can be whatever it is that you want it to be. What do you do when it is not working?
You surrender it to God. Nothing ever fully works when we are trying to control everything. It is when we surrender our will over to God that He shows us how to make “it” work. This week, let us take on the investigative task of finding those areas that are not working that we are yet to completely surrender to God. Once we have found them, let us make time to intercede for those “its” and surrender them up to God so He can show us how to make them work. His word promises that He will not permit the godly to slip and fall. However, we must first give Him our burdens so He can take care of us. We, by holding onto our burdens can make way for ourselves to slip and fall. Do not wait until you slip and fall to release your burdens to God. Give Him your burdens today and He will take care of you and help you make it work.
Have a blessed week.
