Rules for My Life
Rule Number 2 – I do not resist my life situation or circumstances.
This rule keeps me focused on my walk with the Lord. It is, in part, through my circumstances that God speaks to me and helps me understand what He is doing in my environment. My life situation is continually changing and the events are usually outside of my control. The Lord within me never changes. He is constant, His ways are unchanging and He always has everything under control. I trust him absolutely because He alone is unconditionally trustworthy. When I try to figure things out on my own and fight my circumstances, I have no likelihood of succeeding because my attention is drawn away from the Lord who is the solution to all of my problems. The distractions are infinite and will have me focusing on things of which I have no control. By walking in the light of the Lord’s presence, He gives me a perspective to observe events, people and projects with an understanding that helps me navigate the conditions that surround me. By setting my mind on things above and not on earthly things, my focus is always in the Kingdom of Light. From there I discover what is really important and eternal. I know that in the world I am going to face trouble because it is dominated by people who are controlled by their egos. By humbling myself and surrendering myself to the Lord I acknowledge His authority in my life which gives me an abiding sense of His presence continually.
