God is still in control.

October 13, 2010

Are you being tempted to give up? Are you thinking it’s just no use? Does life seem to have
more influence over your time and circumstances than you care for it to? Stay focused! God is still in
control. He does have a plan for you and you must continue to be ready as the opportunity will present
itself. There will be a time to step into His rest. Don’t give up.

The Man_Up study is a simple systematic approach of applying Godly principles in our lives
daily to become what God wants for us to be. This life contains some unexpected circumstances
that can cause us to lose our way. We often have some unrealistic expectations that can cause deep
discouragement, depression and disappointment that has the potential to scar for life. Even when
we know what is coming at us, seeing and recognizing what we are going to face, it still hurts. So is it
possible to make it through life victoriously? Yes it is —- Man_Up.

Accept that God has a productive place for you and purpose to pursue that place in Him. Learn
to recognize the working of the Holy Spirit in you. Don’t try to be something you are not but do your
best at what you are and then recognize how you need to grow to be more as opportunities arise.

At some point we need to learn how to say “here I am send me.” If we will listen there is going
to be a specific time and purpose that God wants to accomplish something special in our lives. It is no
mistake the time and place where and when God has placed us. When it is time to step up we must step
up.

No step in our walk with God need be taken lightly. Each is important. Some may be more
enjoyable than others however all of them are important. One of my least favorites is preparation. That
is where most of the work is and without it reward or accomplishment is much more of a monumental
task. Learn how to prepare. It will make life much easier. As a matter of fact preparation is necessary for
rest.

It is possible to bring some sense of sanity to this otherwise chaotic cycle of unexpected
circumstances and catastrophes called life. We don’t have to be moved by every wind of doctrine nor
tossed emotionally by every new experience. Daily put yourself in the place to hear and receive from
God. Man_Up
