Take your stand!
What is the first thing a child does when it goes from crawling to walking?
Establishing thier stand, gain balance, learn what caused them tip or fall. That is how it has been for me going from unbelief to faith as I wrote on yesterday.
I have stood by faith and waivered and fallen.
I have stood by faith and crossed right back into unbelief which landed me on my butt so to speak (LOL).
Its a trial and error to find a balance in standing in the faith.
But he who stands firm in his heart, being under no constraint, but has authority over his own will… 1 Corinthians 7:37a NASB
It been a matter also of establishing my authority as a believer within myself. The more I am able to do this, this can bring about a balance. Knowing exactly who I am in Christ and what He has given me dominion over I have to learn to walk in.
I have also been able to tap into learning that I can control myself and subject my will, choices and desires to God.
By doing this it has alleviated some drama by not going into any and everything. As to know that everything isn’t Gods perfect will for my life.
To know His will for my life has had to come with a learning of Him and who He is, as well as, what He is purposing in my life currently. Anything outside of that could wear me out, cause overwhelm or burnout.
By learning to take that stand it has also helped bring some balance. It will take time and a few tries but balance does eventually come then the walking begins.
