How many of you reading this find yourselves in a relationship with someone God has already told you to stay away from, that it is not going to work out and that they are not going to change?
Did He not say, “let them go? ”
Why do we cling on to hope? Do we know something that God perhaps over looked? Maybe we didn’t understand. “Maybe it wasn’t God, it was just me. ” We love to reason.
Let me re-iterate what we already know:
When God speaks to us, we receive the message- LOUD&CLEAR.
As clear as a text message. We can delete the text message but it will make no difference. We already read it. We understood it. We immediately mark the message ‘unread’ to make it easier when we decide to tell ourselves ‘we read the message wrong, maybe it wasn’t God.. we texted ourselves by mistake’, and so on and so on.
So what do we do? We pray again. Just to be sure. Maybe this time He will decide to take it easy on my heart and He will change his mind.
Or maybe He will notice all the recent sacrifices I’ve been making to place Him first and somehow that will sway Him over to my side of the matter.
And you know what the craziest part of all this is? It is that we actually continue this scharade for as long as it will take for us to scream out in agony to Him and ask Him ‘Why is all this happening to me Lord… this is totally not fair! ”
Then like a lighting bolt, the suppressed memory flashes upon the forefront of our mind.
“Jesus Christ… He did tell me. ”
“How could of I been so fucking stupid and blind…. Why the hell am I so stubborn? Fuck. ”
“I tried to tell you Son. I did tell you. I love you. You know I want the best for you. I’m sorry this has happened to you.
This is what happens when my children insist on having things their way. They need to learn how to put their wills aside and hear my will that I have planned out for their lives. They need to learn how to trust me and not themselves. How many times do they have to fall flat on their faces before they realize who I am? Depend on me son. I will never abandon you. I will help you. Difficulties will arise but I your God will bless you for turning to me for help and not turning to what you want. Remember me, call out to me. I made you. I know what you want but before you ever open your mouth. I know what you need. Trust me. Let go of the wheel. Let me drive. Let me lead you where you need to go.”
“For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord… I shall make them known to you clearly, so that you may walk in my ways, in my statutes. They will heal your bones and fill your life with many blessings. ”
