In our do it yourself world, we think of ourselves as self-reliant and independent. We think we are our own person. Our lives touch many other lives and we were created with a purpose. The truth is that we often set out on our on and then get frozen by all the fears and trials we face. This is the moment when we need to know that God is in control and has power over all the storms around us. It is not weakness to rely on God. When we know that we are in need of renewal and support, we become stronger by leaning on the power of God.
Our purpose in life was designed and created by God. By seeking out our purpose in life and pursuing those goals, we are completing the destiny God created us for. It only makes sense that we would have faith that God is in control. We can face the storm because God is stronger than the trials that are in our path. He can be our shelter as we continue on the road that he wants us to walk.
For people of faith, trying to go it alone is excluding our creator from the path he designed for us. We are setting ourselves up for failure by removing him from the process. Part of our journey as believers is making a change within ourselves and being in closer relationship with God through our walk. We are being obedient and faithful by relying on God. Take a moment to let go of the tight hold you have on your life and let God show you the amazing things he has in store for you.
