There are some things in all of our lives we just need to let well enough alone. We don’t give our scrapes, bruises, or wounds time to heal. We keep checking on it in our minds. It’s called worrying. We pick at the scare tissue forming around the edges of a former crisis in conversation. We may invite others to share the pain at our personal private pity parties. We may bleed all over our social network outlets letting the world see our wounds. Sometimes, we just need to let the paint dry before we walk on the floor!
Faith is the substance of the things we’re hoping for even when we cannot see it. Faith often requires us to leave some things alone. We can entrust the issues and injuries to God, even the self-inflicted wounds. Faith to believe that God can bring us out even when by our own actions we paint ourselves into a corner.
Put your hands up and step away from the issue! Give God and the healing process time to work. God knows our circumstances and will work at the right time in the right way on our behalf. God doesn’t need us to get in the way when God is working on our future. O Lord, help me to get out of the way so that you can have your way in my life!
“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”
Let us pray:
Lord, today I get out of the way and entrust the entanglements and perplexities of my life into your hands. In Jesus name amen.
