I am the vine and you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
This morning one of the pastors at our church shared about the difference between trying to make a name for ourselves, and God making a name for us. He shared the passages in Genesis 11 and 12 that showed the fate of the builders of the tower of Babel as apposed to that of Abram/Abraham. The builders tried to reach God through their own work, while Abram believed God and trusted Him. How different those 2 approaches to life are, but they make all the difference. I think I struggle between the 2 on a daily basis. I really want to trust God with my whole life, but sometimes it is so hard to get over the fact that I don't know best and what I think is good for me is not the BEST that God has for me. I've learned that the good I want for my self is often the enemy that gets in the way of the best that God has planned.
Do you struggle with trusting God with anything in your life?
