God can only show up in your life in the areas that you surrender to Him. We try and try to do it our way. We know the solutions. We have the best ideas. We’ve studied this or that. Somebody gave us their expert opinion and so forth. If we are not careful we can fall into the trap of trying to sustain ourselves because we think we know it all. We need to just step back and say, “OK Lord, do it Your way.”
Take a look at David and Goliath again (1 Samuel 17). What if David had protective armor or more advanced weapons? What if a bigger stronger warrior had fought instead of the boy? The glory may have gone to the person instead of God. However we know in David’s situation it was God and God alone who won the battle. God wants all the glory and praise for the victories in your life. You may not understand why He wants you to do things a certain way, but just do it any way. He’s setting the stage to perform a miracle in your life!
