Change: Surrendering your way in exchange for God’s way
No need to become frustrated or fatigue anymore; again, why not change your method of operation if you desire change. As a reminder, frustration is the end result of expectations not being met.
I can not emphasize this enough, but the source of your frustration is because of what you do not know! To be freed from your cycle of frustration will require adding to your knowledge base. In fact you can begin the process of that change right now if change is truly your desire:
“Lord,reveal to me whatever it is that I am ignorant to as it relates to my frustrating situation and provide me with what I need to know to change my situation. I now understand what you meant when you said that I must not lean on my own understanding. Instead I must acknowledge or recognize you in “ALL” my ways and then and only then will you direct my path, Proverbs 3:5.
Father, I really and truly need you to direct my path in this and in all of my frustrating matters. I am literally tired of going around the same defeated mountain over and over again. Yes Lord! It is crystal clear to me now, when you said that there is a way that would seem or appear right to us, but you also guarantee us that at the end of our way we will be met with failure and destruction, proverbs 16:26. Clearly, I have had enough of the results of my own way of doing things!
Lord, I am honestly asking you right now to help me in abandoning my fruitless, non-productive, frustrating and defeated way and help me to come on board your way of doing things, which is and has been your counsel for my life even before the foundation of the world. Now Lord, I stand in total agreement with your word that says, “There are many devices, ideas, plans and desires in our hearts BUT only your counsel for us or that which you have determine for us shall come to fruition, Proverbs 19:21.
Father, in the name of your son Jesus Christ, I truly give up and surrender my way in exchange for your way so that things can finally turn in my favor in the matchless name of our lord and savior Jesus Christ. Amen!
