This morning I was reminded that my desires to create balance, foster joy, and eliminate stress in my schedule are futile. Ok, I know this sounds silly, but it is true. We can build so many things in this life. God, as the ultimate creator, created us with drops of His own creativity. However, He ultimately is the sovereign one. The ONLY sovereign one. This means that no matter what we put into place, no matter what structure we build…be they towers of Babel or simply well organized lives, God has the last word. He is the one who eliminates stress. He is the one who brings balance. He is the one who brings joy through His presence.
“Our lives get in step with God and all others by letting him set the pace, not by proudly or anxiously trying to run the parade.” (Romans 3:28 MSG)
Today, let us simply determine to surrender it ALL, our schedules, our desires, our each and every step to Him. As we live God ordered lives, we will be gifted balance, peace, joy and so many other blessings!
LET GOD SET THE PACE!
