Surrender

Wednesday, November 11, 2015

"Each strand of sorrow has a place within this tapestry of grace.  So through the trials I'll choose to say: 'Your perfect will in Your perfect way.'"
I was listening to the song "The Perfect Wisdom", and this line stood out to me.  Just yesterday God showed me how I've been responding to a particular difficulty that I'm going through by escaping.  Escaping into books, a dream world, sin - anything but running to the only One who can truly give me refuge.

In running to anything other than my Savior, I'm telling Him that I don't trust Him.  I'm telling Him that He made a mistake.  I'm telling Him that I deserve better. 

But He never makes a mistake!

His wisdom is perfect.  He is completely sovereign.  He is completely good.  The truth is that I deserve hell because of my sin, but He has rescued me from the kingdom of darkness and transferred me into His Kingdom.  He has given me everything I need for life and godliness.

Who am I to complain that life isn't going the way I wanted it to?

The only logical response is to humble myself before Him, trusting that He is using every circumstance to bring Himself glory and to make me like Him.

His plan is better than anything I could think up on my own, even when it doesn't feel like it.

And no matter what, He is good.
