We establish unrealistic expectations on God and others to rescue us out of our predicaments. These unrealistic expectations turn into frustrations, disappointments, resentments, envy, and bitterness. It stifles the voice of God and our relationship. We inevitably create our own sufferings and prevent ourselves from moving beyond.
When we trust in our own strength, understanding, and will to make it through our suffering – we may inevitably become lost, hurt, betrayed, bitter, and resentful. This leads to us being separated from God’s divine love and grace. Through the Gift of Faith that is offered through Jesus Christ, accepting this offer, we need to put aside our own will and desire. Surrendering to God’s will and trusting in Him to strengthen us and walk with us through our struggles is where we find peace that surpasses all understanding.
When we seek God – we seek to live a life that is spiritually abundant and full of grace and truth.
Our Heavenly Father desires to help us through our journey. This includes guiding us in solving our problems. When we are walking in obedience to His divine will and plan, he will help us face those difficult issues and bring us through them. This means that we submit ourselves over to doing that which we may find uncomfortable.
This is a lasting and eternal peace that gives us confidence, wisdom, and empowerment to endure. It is different than the false sense of security and peace that the world may offer us. Instead of chasing after our illusion of happiness – let us chase after the reality and truth that is found in Jesus Christ.
Our faith and assurance on Christ and Heavenly Father rests on experiencing their presence and know that they are reigning in our hearts and minds.
Let us approach the throne of God in humble submission. Quietness of mind and heart. Devoting ourselves in praise and worship with eternal gratitude for the gift of the Infinite Atonement through Jesus Christ. His sacrifice provided a way for us to enter into the Kingdom of God.
