“Since Jesus went through everything you’re going through and more, learn to think like him. Think of your sufferings as a weaning from that old sinful habit of always expecting to get your own way. Then you’ll be able to live out your days free to pursue what God wants instead of being tyrannized by what you want.”
1 Peter 4:1-2 MSG
Are you frustrated today?
You may be dealing with a bad habit that needs to be broken also known as: things aren’t working out the way you want them to.
You may well not even realize it is a habit until you go through something difficult.
Until you are challenged.
Until things don’t work out the way you expected them to.
Jesus said that you are free when our lives are not centered around what you want but around what God wants.
When you struggle, you may think it is because God doesn’t love you.
In reality, He loves you so much that He will use the stressful circumstance at hand to break the habit of the-only-way-I-will-be-happy-is-when-I-get-my-way.
God has more for you than that and He calls it freedom.
