#FEARLESS365 is a yearlong study of God’s commandment to us to live without fear. For 365 days, we will focus on one scripture and volunteers from all over the world will share their personal thoughts and what God has shared with them on the specific verse. For more info… go here.
And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
This verse is telling me that I do not have any power over my own life. I cannot add to nor take from my life without God. He is my Creator and I am under His subjection. He is the one in control. He gives life and He takes life. It lets me know that I cannot do nothing without Him. I have to live in the designated time that He has given me. While living I need to walk in the purpose that He has set for me. I cannot change my height. I should be proud of my height. I have to accept how God has created me.
He is the reason why I live and breathe. He made me fearfully and wonderfully. I am to be content and accept what He allows. It lets me know that God has a plan for my life. His plan is to help me to be the woman that He created me to be.
Worry, fussing, and crying is not going to change anything. I have to lean and depend on Him to provide my needs. He knows what I have need of before I mutter, groan, or ask. God wants to provide for me. He wants to show me love and His wondrous works. He wants me to do wondrous works in His name.
I need to start praising Him more and doubting/trusting less. I need to stop wondering how and know that it is already done in Jesus name. I need to stop trying to fight the battle and know that victory is mine. I need to let go and let God. I need to lean and depend on Him. Shelly cannot do it on her own. Shelly cannot change it by herself. Shelly would not even know where to begin. But God can do everything and He wants to do things in my life right now. Without God, I am nothing. With Him, I can do all things.
