A New Tool: Thanks and Belief

toolsGod gave me a new tool to use for victorious living. It’s found in 2 Chronicles 20:21, “Give thanks to the Lord, for His love endures forever.”
This past August, God asked me to let Him plan my daily schedule. I’d been holding on to it way too tight and putting so much into it that it only left me tired and stressed. He was and is trying to show me that He’s better at the controls of my life than I am. I know that’s a “duh” statement, but I bet you’re challenged in this area as well.
I have a list of projects and activities that I believe He wants me to accomplish (“the good works, which He prepared for me”). So each day, I sit with Him and ask what parts of the projects and what activities that He wants me to do with Him that particular day.
When I start to stress out over what is not or the results of the items on that list, which can lead to drug taking, I can chill out by remembering the truth from the above passage. I can give thanks for who my God is. His yoke is easy. I can do what He wants done with Him. Then I can believe Him for the results, which really don’t matter. I am loved by Him, regardless of the outcome. I am accepted whether I mess them up or do “it” right.
I’m using a new tool (aka biblical truth) today to enjoy my walk with and allow the Spirit to make me more like Jesus. What tool is Jesus asking you to pick up today? Don’t know? Keep listening to Him in the Word. He’ll show it. Know it? Keep asking the Spirit to empower you to use it.
