Everyday there is a lot of babel coming our way!
We get it from media affiliates, friends, our jobs, family, and even ourselves. This is the white noise that breeds on our emotions and feelings. While we navigate life, we filter through this babel to stay focused and linked to God’s heart.
Dealing with the babel is probably one of the greatest challenges we will face. If left untamed, it can lead our lives into frustration. The good news is that Christ gives us an antidote to overcome.
With Him we have the plan and purpose of a GENIUS! He knows everything, and He has exact moves that will bless every area of our lives. He is the beginning and the end for us and the world. The best thing we can do is trust His genius by letting Him complete His plan. This is HUGE as we break through the babel that tries to haunt us.
“The Lord directs the steps of the Godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.”Psalm 37:23
I love this verse as it speaks to our freedom over the babel.
The opinions, the advice and the pressure we face can be overwhelming, yet we have peace in Christ. Babel resists the genius of His plan and purpose for our lives. It’s vying for our attention and belief to trust ourselves or others more than God. It can be subtle, but it’s very real.
Jesus will lead us through the babel. Our part is to let His genius be displayed. Here are two practical steps we can follow.
First, trust that He is directing our steps. That trust can touch the small stuff as well as the big stuff. Through His genius, our steps are ordered into a life of peace and victory. His plans are good and they have a good end. Our part is to let Him do it!
He has clear direction for every step we take.
Second, believe that He knows every detail of our lives. This covers everything. Christ desires to alleviate our stress by filling us with faith, knowing that He cares and loves every aspect of our lives. Our part is to let Him fulfill this!
He does not get lost in the details and has everything planned for good.
While this may be a challenge for us, we can start today. We can begin to let go of the babel by trumping it with His genius.
What babel do you need crushed? Locate it and use these two steps as a way to overcome.
May the Lord bless you and give you peace!
Love you and the best is ahead!
