Move Over

This morning I was reading from “Jesus Today” by Sarah Young.  The reading was about going through a dark time and trusting in God’s Sovereignty.  One line read, “So it is crucial at such times to remember that I am your constant Companion.  Moreover, because I am Sovereign God, I am able to turn your darkness into Light.”

But I misread it and read, “Move over, because I am Sovereign God, I am able to turn your darkness into Light.”   I think I like that better because “maybe” too often I get in the way of Him and slow down the process He’s working in me. 

Philippians 1:6 says “being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”  I wonder how many times I slow down that work being completed because I get in His way like when I attempt to retain control or exercise control that is not mine or when I try to find my own answers rather than search for His.  Just wonderin’…Maybe, just maybe, I need to learn this before He has to move me over or out of the way…just maybe…

Today, Father,, please help me not to get in Your way of accomplishing what You want to accomplish in and through me.  Help me to move over and let Your Sovereignty bring LIght into my life.”
