Stop Fighting

Outside brings me joy

“If you knew what I had in store for you, then you would stop fighting me so much.”  These words came out of my mouth as I was getting my 1 year old son, Shia, ready to go play outside.

Shia loves to play outside.  What kid doesn’t?  But sometimes getting him ready to go outside can be somewhat of a challenge.  I am sure all mothers can relate.  He just wouldn’t sit still for me to get his shirt on or his pants, socks, shoes or jacket.  Needless to say, he was fighting me every step of the way and all I wanted to do was bless him by letting him go outside to play.  Of course he doesn’t really understand yet when I say, “lets get ready to go outside and play.”  If he did, I bet he wouldn’t fight me at all.  He would definitely be more cooperative.

So as I said, “if you knew what I had in store for you, then you would stop fighting me so much,” I immediately heard in my spirit, “yes Abby, if my children knew what I had in store for them, they too would stop fighting me so much.”

So why do we resist and fight God every step of the way when all He wants to do is bless us?  It is time to let go and let God flow.

You can tell if you are resisting God if you live with fear, worry, depression, anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, jealousy, lust, greed, hopelessness, panic, addictions, control issues, judgment, hatred, loneliness, guilt, shame, frustration, sadness, envy, doubt, boredom, just to name a few.

There is so much in store for you….just waiting for you.  I am sure, just like Shia, if you knew what was in store for you, then you wouldn’t fight God so much.

God wants to bless you.  All you have to do is stop fighting and just be still and know that He is God.  He is waiting, arms open wide, to love you unconditionally, to heal and restore you, to bless you.

Stop the fight….turn and face Him.  I promise He is there and the blessings are just waiting.  The longer you fight, the longer it is going to take.
