V is for Valiantly and Victory

V is for Valiantly and Victory

When they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. (Matthew 10:19)

As a writer for God I sometimes struggle and try to force the words to come. I forget that God will give me the words when I let go and let Him. The times when I relax and let the spirit move me, the words come and the writing becomes almost easy. I am not the only person who tries to stand in God's way, we all do.

We like to think that we can do it all without help, without guidance. We are all powerful and can do anything. Even when our bodies, our minds, our relationships send signals that it's time to let go, we still refuse using platitudes like I've failed, how will other people look at me.

Yet, God wants us to turn to Him. He doesn't see it as failure, instead He sees Victory. Victory for you, Victory for Him. When we don't turn to Him we impede His work in us. We prevent Him from accomplishing all that He wants to accomplish in each and every one of us.

Valiantly rest in God. Don't seek work or make opportunities for Him. Valiantly live with Him and for Him. Let Him seek the work and make the opportunities. Then with Him you will see Victory.

  1. Enjoyed this one Chris. Sometimes I find myself trying to hard to come up with something to say and this is a great reminder to rely on Him to speak through me.
