‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty…(Rev. 4:8)
Do you ever fear people who have a sense of power over you? I do. In fact, that’s most certainly been a struggle of mine over the years. I’ve gotten better about it as I’ve learned to trust God, but I’ve noticed that when something has a deep significance to me, maybe too much significance, I can become easily worried or anxious when I feel like I might upset the person in charge of it.
Yet, I am reminded that human beings are not who I should fear, but God alone. After all, if God wants something for us He’ll work it out. If not, than we don’t have to think its because we upset the powerful people. Truly, we can go crazy over analyzing things we said or didn’t say that might have upset them.
Friend, if you want to be free, then let it go. Walk today in the goodness of Jesus. There is joy for you in His presence. Set your heart and mind free by releasing your worries to God. Offer Him the proper worship as you revere Him as King and not human beings. Please don’t make any human a king or queen in your mind.
Whenever the devil tries to bring something back up, just lay it down again and cover it in the grace and mercy of God again and again. Trust me, if all the powerful people spent as much time thinking about your situation as you did, they’d never have any time in the day to do anything else, so please, don’t give them so much space in your heart and mind. Treasure what you do have, and that’s Jesus. Let go of what you fear, so you can live in green pastures today. Don’t feel the need to walk in insecurity, but rest in the one who makes you secure, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Truly, before you can go with Jesus, sometimes you must lighten your load and let His love and mercy guide you. So stop treasuring what’s weighing you down and start lifting up empty hands of praise instead. Let His word wash over you like water as you sing it from your heart today into the world. It’s the song we all need to hear and He wants to sing it from your lips too.
Lord, I surrender my fears. Forgive me for holding on too tightly to things I wish I would have said or done. Sometimes I can cherish things far too much. Forgive me for that. I pray instead I would walk by faith, let it be so, I pray, in Jesus name, Amen.
