Not Your Battle, But God’s

One of the most difficult things to do is to step back and disassociate yourself from  circumstances that you are involved in. Detaching yourself from the event runs contrary to the natural DNA of humanity and does not fill like a normal and natural response. The more critical and difficult the situation, the more you feel that it demands your attention and involvement. Stepping back and/or being still and waiting is even more difficult for those who have the “I can fix this mentality.” How many times have you attempted to “fix it” only to make the situation worse. This is why you find it difficult when God tells you to be still and wait! Hurry up and wait rattles you to your very core. However, the benefits of recognizing that the battle is not ours, but God’s and giving the battle to Him produces greater results than you realize.
