Arm Wrestling With God

You feel His presence in your life.  He's holding your hand and leading you in a direction you don't want to go.  Instead of allowing Him to lead you, you choose to arm wrestle with Him.  Odds are you are a fighter because you have trust issues.  If you truly believed the place where God is leading you is good for you, you wouldn't be fighting Him.

Have you been involved in relationships that turned sour because someone did something to hurt you?  If you were hurt by someone, like your parents, who caused you pain, this may make it difficult for you to trust God.  You have a false image of what a loving God is and you are arm wrestling Him to avoid getting hurt.

You can't win a wrestling match with your past.  It's over.  Let go.  Recognize that the Hand holding on to you now belongs to a God who loves you perfectly.  He's not here to fight with you.  He wants to lead you to a place where you can have peace.  God is not your adversary, He's your Salvation.
