When my kids were toddlers, I can recall them "fighting their sleep." I know most of you who are parents can relate. I would think to myself, why is this child fighting so hard against what is needed. Now, once my little one stopped resisting and took a nap, they looked so peaceful sleeping and receiving what was most needed...rest!
As an adult, the resistance doesn't seem to stop. God has a plan for our lives, and we often resist, thinking we know a better way. We sometimes put up a fight until we have no choice but to surrender and rest in the plan that He prepared for us. Once we take His rest, we can then see it was what we needed all along.
My reminder for you today is to cease resisting God's plan. God wants you to know that you can trust Him. You will be safe in His arms and His plan for your life is always good, perfect, and pleasing.
Prayer for the Journey
Father, I know you are with me and predestined a great plan for my life. Help me to yield to your will. Your love towards me is unconditional and my submission to you relies strictly on my trust in you. Today, I choose to rest in you! In Jesus name, Amen.
