Have you ever felt so burdened by the battles in your life that you get very depressed? You have a choice: take it to God or do it your own way. Most of us prefer to do it our own way and when we fail we then look to God for help. Somehow, that strength we never thought we had begins to manifest and solutions to problems start to appear.
We may have free will but after all is said and done we cannot do it by ourselves; we need the sovereign hands of God upon our lives. ‘ I look to you’ by Whitney Houston captures this truth. In all her struggles, Whitney eventually realised she could turn to no one else but God. ‘After all my strength is gone, in you I can be strong’ she sings. She knew she could find her strength in God after all she had been through.
The same applies to everyone of us. Do you find life to be very difficult? Are the problems too much for you to bear? God wants to take that burden off you. Look to Him today and you will be amazed at the difference it would make.
Here’s ‘I look to you’. Listen and know that God cares about you.
