Are You Standing?

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. – Ephesians 6:13 (NIV).

Some times when you are doing your best to rest, to recharge, after a long week at work, that is when everything goes wrong.

Some times when you are really trying to hit a goal, obstacles block your way.

It is in these moments that we have to let go.  We have to surrender the outcome we want to God.  We have allow Him to create the best outcome rather than one that comes from our infinite mind.

This is where this Scripture comes in.  We have to do all we can toward our goal, then surrender it to God.

For instance, let’s say, you want to move to another state.  You put out applications in that state online.  You look at housing.  You do everything you can do.

Then you surrender because you can’t make anyone hire you, offer you housing or put the whole thing together.  Only God can do that.

It is when we surrender, when we say, “Lord, I don’t know what You are doing, but I trust You,” that we start to see God’s handiwork in our situation start to unfold.

When you have done all you know to do, stand and see God fight on your behalf (Exodus 14:14).
