Why is it such a stronghold to control our lives with the intention of making everything "perfect" or "right"? God never offers us this idea of perfect lives on earth, he actually says this place is not our home, and our real home is in Heaven, the only place where perfectionism exists, because we will finally be in HIS perfect presence.
Worry, doubt, confusion, distraction... they consume our thoughts and invade our lives... yet Scripture says:
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
This idea of not worrying, is completely foreign to us, Satan uses worry and the desire to control to distract us from what really matters, to change our outward Kingdom perspective, to an inward perspective that is consumed with ourselves and our lives.
Today I want to encourage us all to let go, we serve a God who is faithful, loyal, and worthy of our trust. To be responsible for what we can control, and to not worry about what we can't control. To trust that HE is sovereign over everything. To every morning wake up and lay our lives, out joys, our burdens, our sorrows, and our victories at the feet of Jesus, and give him thanks, that he is better than all of those things, that he matters more than all of those things, and to use us in a mighty way each day, that he might be glorified. If we don't ask, by default we will be swallowed by this worlds worries.
