🏋️♀️January 8th 2020: So, we are in the driving seat of us! Full control, alert, focused, able to make decisions and choices….lovely!🙋♀️ So where does God come in?🤔 There is a big difference between making wrong choices but with a good heart, and making wrong choices with a wrong heart! We HAVE to make mistakes because: 1) we are human, it is what we do best!🤣 2) we need to lean on Him to enquire and learn when something doesn’t work! Look at it like this…..
🚘Our free will is the driver of the car
🚘The car was chosen by us, but was influenced by our preferences, choices and desires
🚘Our preferences and desires were influenced by the creators of the car
🚘The purpose of the car is to get us to our destination, but the route and timings are left to our choices and responsibilities
🚘How safely and well we drive that car, is not the responsibility of the manufacturers, but us!
That is how free will is for us! We are free to choose our lives, but we are influenced by God to navigate towards a preference. The key here, is that this only works if we WILLINGLY AND FREELY allow Him to guide us, because He has been given the permission to influence us! 🙆♀️ I love it when I am in the place to let God influence me on different issues! When I give Him permission to mold me! I have that conversation with Him a lot! I have had some really hard things in my life that were hard because He was not influencing them.🤦♀️ I get to the stage where I can’t stand it anymore and I give Him full access to lead me. I still have free will, but He orchestrates extraordinary events that enable me to see a clear path out of my misery, and towards a safe place simply because I choose to let Him!☝️ Today, let’s assess our influences, do we have many influences that contradict and clash? Do we only have our own voice which only leads us to a place of self? or do we have the conviction of the Holy Spirit that leads us into ALL truth? Have you given Him permission to influence and guide you on issues? Because He won’t force you! He will let you be whatever you choose to be, but He wants to have the relationship with us to show us the better life, not because He is a control freak, but because He loves us and has plans to prosper us!🙆♀️ Man, I absolutely love this stuff! #permissions!❣ #influencedtotruth!❣
