Trust God instead of yourself


By Tony A. Woodson - Pastor, Townsend Grove Missionary Baptist Church



Too many of us are walking around unhappy!

The Lord never intended for us to put off our happiness. We have a choice to make each and every day. We have to set our minds in the right direction. That’s why David said, “This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.” He was saying, “This is the day to be happy; this is the day to enjoy God’s blessing… not tomorrow, not when the weather clears up. not next week; or when we don’t have to work so hard. Today, give God the praise. Not next month. Not when we make it through this difficult time.” Remember this… this there is…excuse… choose to honor the Lord right now by choosing to enjoy your life. Get rid of the excuses and rejoice because this is the day that the Lord has made!

Be grateful for who you are and whatever you have. Everything you have is a gift from God. If we are to receive the blessings God wants to bestow upon us, we must be willing to give Him the messes in our lives. It is God’s will to bless us, but not necessarily on our terms. Sometimes what we think would be a wonderful blessing would not bless us at all. God knows what’s best for us; so why not trust Him instead of ourselves.

And the church said… Amen!
