Controling our situations
To often people believe that they can control their own situations... They say "Lord here take this situation for me and do your will with it," but without realizing we still cling onto that thing we told God to take care of. What is it with us that we feel we need to control everything? That maybe if we did this or said that, that it would change our circumstance. It's not like we know the outcome either way until we actually reach that point. So analyzing everything in our heads and making up ''maybe" situations doesn't help, in the end it just drives us crazy. If we truly had faith in God if we truly believed Him we'd leave every situation up to Him with confidence right?
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
If we claim to truly have faith in God we'd let go of trying to control our own lives. They turn out so much better, than when we hold on. No matter what the outcome...It's God's will not ours. That doesn't mean we wont get anything we ask.... If God agrees and says ok this is my will, than believe that you already have what you asked of God or better. He knows the desires of our hearts and the better path for us. So we should have no problem in approaching God and LEAVING our situations up to God and really having confidence in Him <3
