I agree with this statement, but not wholeheartedly. I mean, yes, everything is in God’s hands, and we shouldn’t stress, lose sleep, or not eat; however, to accomplish our goals, there are steps we must take. We can do nothing and be stagnant, but that may not be the best choice.
If you hear from the Lord to trust in him, that is a beautiful thing. There is no one better to trust. However, if you feel him instructing you to take action and do more–make sure you do it. Because no one else is going to do it for you, you must take action. Sometimes we don’t realize that. We sit and let problems resonate without doing anything.
Sometimes we think that this is the way God wants things for us. Little steps can make a big difference, though, and sometimes there are small steps we can take to make it better. Sometimes God will instruct us further. We have to ask him to lead and guide and be in constant contact with him.
Again, I’m not saying we shouldn’t pray and leave it in his hands. Of course we should. At the same time, we should listen for instruction, and if our intuition tells us there are certain things we should do, we shouldn’t ignore it and assume that God wants our life to be a certain way.
