Sometimes we struggle because we are attempting to manage our lives on our own terms. But as children of God, how often are we inviting Jesus to whatever the situation is? Or, how often are we asking God to fix the problem according to what we believe is the solution?
Have You Invited Jesus Into Your Situation?
My grandchildren give me a vivid picture of this. From the babes (under 5yo) to the young adults, their attempts at independence is both laudable for the confidence they exhibit, and fearful because of their lack of experience. Time always presents an occasion for me and their parents to interject the safety words, “…let me help you.” In these parental rescue attempts, my grandchildren far too often resist the assist, not understanding they lack either the skill or the experience to recognize the potential dangers I and their parents know are ahead.
God’s children can be like my grandchildren. Far too often, we are operating independently from God trying to figure everything out on our own, instead of INVITING THE LORD into the situation. I’ve had to gain some of my experience the hard way, but I learned. It’s taught me that it will end up working out better when we do as Jonathan McReynolds sings … by inviting Jesus into our ‘SITUATION.’
