It's the same way in the spiritual. Often we try to force our way with God.
There have been times in my life when I have manipulated things to work my way and the results have always been the same - frustration, tension, and more than a few tears.
You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, “He did not make me”? Can the pot say of the potter, “He knows nothing”? Isaiah 29:16 NIV
God has proven over and over again that His way is best. When I let go and let Him have His way, He uses me in ways I never could have dreamed or imagined. Nothing I can force is as beautiful as what God can do when I surrender to Him.
Today I want to encourage you to stop trying so hard. God's promises are true and He always keeps His Word. You can rest in the knowledge that what He says He will do. All you have to do is yield to His Will.
