Proverbs 3:5-6 (AMP)5 Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.6 In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
When you receive Christ as your savior, the Holy Spirit comes to live inside of you. Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We don’t have to try to find God when we need Him because He is already inside of us. There is not a thing wrong with our Spirit. We are made Holy through the death of Jesus.
The problem we might have is our flesh – not our spirit. Anything God asks us to do we can do it – we just may not be able to do it on our own – we just might need God’s help to accomplish some things in life. Everything God asks us to do is for our own benefit.
Sometimes what we want for our life and what God wants for our life are two different things. If your life seems miserable, it may be helpful to take a step back and ask yourself if you are doing with your life what God wants you to do with your life. God wants us to be one with Him.
We all have a journey we will take in life. It is not so important to finish the journey to but to at least be on a journey. The beginning of the journey is usually the hardest because if we are not used to cooperating with God it will take some time to get used to. We seem to start out right but then life just gets tough and it is easy to take a detour or stop for a while in doing what we need to do.
There will always be obstacles as we are on our journey – those obstacles are strategically placed in front of us by the devil. He uses our flesh, people, negative circumstances, our attitude, and lots of other things to keep us from progressing. As we learn to obey God and ignore the Devil’s obstacles the easier it will become to be obedient to God. For most of us this does not happen overnight.
If you feel stuck and cannot seem to progress on your journey, the best thing to do is to pray and study the area in the bible where you feel is keeping you stuck where you are at.
Philippians 1:6 (AMP) 6 And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.
