Your emotions can make you feel rubbish at times. They are based on your thought pattern. What you are thinking and what you are dwelling on. Most of what you think about doesn’t change anything. You can end up just going round in circles. Probably coming to slightly different conclusions each time. Not really helping and changing nothing.

You were not made to worry. Fear is not meant to be your master. It is not in your DNA. Does God worry? Is He afraid? If you are going to fear anything/anyone, then fear God. Your thought life is what determines your actions. You become what you think about. A lot of your thoughts are based on lies and twisted truths. You hear and see things which cause you to create a set of thoughts. A process which can spirals downwards. Unless you turn your thoughts to Him and renew them in the light of His revelation.

Your natural inclination is to fix a problem yourself even if you need God to do it for you. The problem with that is that you have put the need before His kingdom. You have put yourself before Him. You are trying to solve the problem by an act of your will rather than by faith. Disappointment can swiftly follow.

You have an option either to stay there or let Him sort it out. Hand it over to Him, stand back and watch Him at work. Do you think you can work everything out? Do you think you can sort everything and help everyone?

Imagine two power cables plugged together. When they are power can flow. In the same way His power isn’t from you otherwise people would have to rely on you for everything. Instead you help them get plugged into His power. He will do the work in and through them. Make it your ambition to draw them to Him so they can draw from Him themselves. Point them at Him. Show them Him. You will become exhausted and depressed if you try to do it all yourself in your own strength by your own effort.

Be humble, submit yourself to Him, yield yourself under His mighty hand.
