Have you ever noticed the difference between an artist with a natural talent verses an someone that went to school to learn the trade? There is a natural flow that comes up from within us and the object is to recognize the giver instead of taking credit for our self. If you will notice individuals that discover their natural talents you will find that they perform out of love with no expectations in return.
The object in this life is to enter into the natural flow of God instead of allowing the current of the world to take us under. Too many times we try to hold the paintbrush that is held by God because we want to define our picture. There are no words that can describe the peace that comes in the river of God when we allow the Lord to hold us up and allow Him to carry us forward.
If your life feels as if it is an upstream battle with constant obstacles in your path let me challenge you to turn around with Jesus and allow Him to guide you back home. We can only fight so long in the current of the world and at some point we must learn how to let it go in order to enter into the natural flow of the river of God. For when He brings things together no man can tear them apart…amen
