Can God Get Glory from My Life?
by Dominique Henderson
“I have no other choice, but to trust you.”
Any fans of Tye Tribbett out there? Here’s #1 right here. I remember that not too long after the decision to leave my job, my wife and I took the kids to Houston for a weekend. There were a lot of things going on in our lives at the time to include the fact that I only had two more weeks with the employer that provided for over 80% of our household income!!! We needed a trip to get away from our routine of life and spend some time with each other and in close fellowship with God. During that trip though, I was bumping my Tye CD (Victory Live!) while making a run to the grocery store. I was in the car alone and track #10 came on. My life hasn’t been the same since. (For my Tye fans you know what I mean.) I encourage the reader that hasn’t heard this song “No Other Choice” to listen to it. God used this musical message to speak to my spirit and let me know that everything will be alright if I chose to trust Him. Did you know that you have to make a conscience decision to trust God in spite of your circumstance? I mean trusting God is an active exercise that must be employed daily. It hit me really hard when I came to that realization. For those of you that are really feeling me on this, you understand that it is a daily siege to wake up and have things go wrong. But here is the trusting part, to say like Job, "though He slay me, yet will I trust Him." The second part of that oft quoted verse has Job saying that he will maintain or defend his ways before the Lord. Job understood that although his friends had a lot to say about his situation, his trust was in God and he knew that he had lived his life before God as a living sacrifice and had nothing to hide. God is waiting on those that realize that this life that we live is not our own and that we owe him everything. We have to live a sold-out life to God. We must live a sold-out life to God. Who cares what people think, say or do? My pastor put it this way, "we should anticipate criticism". Jayson Graves of Blazing Grace has a powerful saying, “it is none of your business what other people think about you”. I love it because it is so true. Let God be responsible for handling your critics--you just learn to trust him as if it is your only choice. Today, can you make a conscience decision to trust God for everything in your life? Hey, what other choice do you have?
Trusting in a promise that God has made to you is foundational to victory in your current situation.
