God’s View Of Our Problems-Part 5

May 7, 2014

 

We are to live our lives moment-by-moment surrendering our wills to God’s will. This is something hard for us as Believer’s to wrap our minds around. My friend, we need to surrender to God’s will and say, “It is no longer I, but Christ.” When we surrender our wills to God’s will, we will begin to have the mind of God and the pleasure of God. This is the way God has designed it to be. This is eternal thinking. This is the upward view. When we choose the upward view and look at our problems from God’s perspective, we will clearly see His matchless grace bestowed upon us. You see, as we choose to live surrendered lives, God himself will form our minds. As we grow our wills become His will because the Holy Spirit is working His will in and through us as we abide in Him. My friend, Colossians 2:6 has this to say, “Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,” The same way we received the Lord Jesus Christ by grace, we are also to walk in Him, by grace.
