Trusting God

Some people have control issues.  If they can't control you, they have an issue.  
Some people have a standards issue.  If you don't measure up to their standards, they have an issue. 
Some people have a perception issue.  If you meet their perceptions, they have an issue. 

Proverbs 3:5-6 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Some people try to control what they can't or shouldn't.  Some people set standards that are neither moral or achievable.  Some peoples perceptions just lead you to wonder what fantasy world they are living in?

All of this has led us as a society to develop a science to understand what is going on inside our heads, a multi-billion dollar business to know how to navigate through this emotional minefield and a cultural norm that is reaching all new lows to accommodate every kind of belief and philosophy.  

What should we do?  Trust God.  

If you believe that God is in control, then allowing Him to handle the problems you face isn't about controlling others, it's about allowing God to lead you. 

If you believe that God's standards are the only standards you should live by, then right and wrong isn't a philosophical argument that ends in a stalemate.  

If you would see the world as God sees it, then you wouldn't have to worry about how their actions affect your life.  You would be concerned how their actions affect their eternity. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus,  teach me to trust You today.  AMEN
