We live such a beautiful and busy life, and within this life it's easy to forget the person that gave it all to us in the first place. I know for me I tend to believe this lie, that I know so much more than I actually do. I hate that. Getting so sucked up in pretending ; pretending to have my life all together when in reality its a big mess, pretending I know myself better than God knows me. Am I the only one that does this? No.Everyone pretends these days, but Why? Maybe because its scary to give up the little control we do have to someone we've never met? Whatever the reason, I'm personally done pretending. I'm letting go and letting God.
Earlier today at church we read Psalm 139, and two verses stood out to me... Psalm 139: 7-8. "Where can I go from your spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there." I realized that so many of us, me included, try to run and flee from God... as if He's going to harm us. But that's another lie, God is here for me and you. Imagine the best love you've ever experienced, imagine that moment where you felt overwhelmed with love... well take that love and triple it, and then double that, and even then that doesn't amount to the love God has for you. God saw you before you were born, He's completely fascinated with you. And no matter how hard you try to run and hide from Him, He's with you.
So as the title of this post says, "You are not the expert, God is", and it's true...He is. As well as we think we may know ourselves, our friends, and our family, God knows more. Always more. He knows what's best for us and the people we love, the timing of when things will happen and how it'll happen. So one of the things I'm working on personally, and challenge you to do, is have trust in Him and the decisions He's making for your life. It's not easy and there are people that believe the decisions I'm making in order to let God step in are wrong, but those people's opinions don't matter. What matters is following Christ and the plan He has set up for you. And that my friends is scary. But step out in faith, because the end result is going to be amazing.
Remember that you don't have to carry all of this weight on your shoulders, Christ can lift that away. Have comfort in that and rest. So what are today's truths?
God loves you so much, and He has a plan specifically for you.
You don't have to put up a front for God, He already knows you.
