Do Not Make Yourself Your Own Savior

Neil Vermillion —  May 7, 2020 —  Comments

Your deficiencies will not disqualify you. Your inability will not prevent the completion of my will in your life, for my plans were never dependent upon your strength, ability, or effort to begin with. There are so many directions in which you could move and progress, so do not allow confusion to hinder you. I will honor your faith as you step forward doing the best you can, with what you have at this time. I know there is confusion in your heart, mind, and circumstances, but it is in the stepping you will come to understand in greater measure the details of the plans I have for you. (1)

As you surmise, wrestle, speculate, and doubt I will be with you. You search on every side, looking for the answer already before your eyes, though you do not recognize or perceive it. Because you do not discern, or understand, you continue your quest, in search of that which you already possess. Allow me to calm your mind, feelings, and insecurities. The resistance against you will hit you wherever possible – usually where you are most vulnerable, if you permit it. (2)

I will close the mouth of your accusers, and will calm the storm within your heart. I will project hope where you see fear, and will demonstrate courage, where you find no answers.

Do not lean on your own understanding. Do not make yourself the savior of your own life. Do not carry the burden you were not meant to carry, for it will weigh you down and tire you out. In your own strength you will not be able to sustain for the long term, but my yoke is easy for you. If you will make yourself small, and allow yourself to be like a child – to think, trust, and love like a child – you will find just how easy it really is. (3)

I am encouraging you today to choose the path of life I have for you. Choose the path of abiding in me and resting in me, for in this place you will experience the joy, peace, and freedom available for you. I will make myself known to you and you will come to know me face to face, and heart to heart. (4)
