♕ Today's Promise: "Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:" 1 Peter 5:5-6
Firstly all glory to God.
I just recently realized that my frustrations when things don't go right or my way, that anger usually explodes because of a failure mentality and I have noticed this area dramatically subside.
My wife's brother lent my wife a vehicle to drive with but started to lose brake fluid on one of the back wheels. I offered to help her fix it and she agreed. To my surprise there were more complications than anticipated and my time was very limited. Two days later I had it all sorted out but once again as I tested the brakes at 11 pm in the night it failed and I had to do it another day.
On my next visit when pulling of the drum my wife had a few question about why the piston is scew and maybe I put it on wrong but I kindly replied to all of her questions then she asked me to check the other side which already had a Tyre fastened on and needed to be jacked up and the tyre needed to be removed and the drum and my time was limited again, however the old me would have flipped, cursed because now it's just unnecessary extra work.
I complied and agreed with kindness and a sense to please my wife's curiosity. Once everything was off, my wife saw that there was no mistake and had peace of mind and agreed that I had done it correctly. The old me would have blurted something out like I told you so, or you justed my time etc but I myself was at peace.I must acknowledge a thought of a evil response dit come up but with God's help I choose not to obey it. I want to give God all the glory because I know I struggled a lot in this area to be still and He has helped me to have victory.
I know it's a process but I have the Holy Spirit to help and remind me, to be mindful of how I am to respond and to put my feelings aside. All praises to God my father toYou my LORD and savior Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
1 Peter 5:5-6 (KJV) Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
The truth is always be submissive unto God by being open in your heart never allow pride to step in, be transparent, keep on surrendering and seeking His Kingdom and His Will and He will fight the battles on your behalf which you have surrenderd and repented for.
Be patient, allow God to change you in His time and don't allow time to cause you to become anxious for God is more than willing to heal you, your spouse and loved ones, but you first must stand in line to be renewed.
