via Daily Prompt: Meddle

Don’t you hate it when someone meddles in your business and messes up plans that you never even told them about?  People come along and interrupt your smooth sailing and throws up a roadblock that causes you to have to go a different direction.  And of course, it happens just when you had finally figured out what to do to make things work the way you wanted…SO ANNOYING!  This mindset is common and it’s an ongoing frustration that never seems to end.

I have the perfect solution for meddling!

It doesn’t cost a dime and yet it will cost you everything but it is so worth it!

You can completely flip the script!  Choosing to live a life fully surrendered to God is the solution to meddling.

Now, meddling goes from annoying to EXCITING!  Really, it’s true!

Every morning I purposefully bow my knee to Christ.  I invite God to come and do whatever He wants to do in my life today.  I ask Him to show me the path that He wants me to walk and I ASK Him to interfere and stop anything that is not of Him.

I WANT God to meddle in my life!  I would be a hot mess if He left me to my own devices to try to have a successful, joyful day.  I ask Him to give me ears to hear, eyes to see, and a heart that is tender and immediately responsive to Him.  I need Him to help me with every part of my life.  From parenting to driving safely to keeping my home clean and orderly.  I got nothing without Him.  It sounds simple enough to do those things, but the fact of the matter is that I am terrible at it when left to my own ways.  I need Him to help me with the day-to-day mundane tasks just as much as the big ministry tasks.  I believe there is an equipping for everything He asks us to do.  He commands us to give thanks in all things.  That means He is happy to equip me with the ability to praise and worship with a thankful heart while washing dishes!

However, I also believe He is a gentleman and He will not force you to include Him in anything you do.  He won’t come meddle in your life unless you invite Him to come.  I know it sounds crazy, but I love it when God meddles in my life and changes things up.  I end up doing things I never imagined possible.  My life is so much more exciting now!!

He knows what we need and how to make the very best of every day.


Warning:  We serve a BIG God and He will do BIG things in your life if you fully surrender to Him.  He will shake things up, ask you to do things you never imagined, and it will blow your mind.  It won’t always be easy, but you will find yourself saying, “WOW God!  I can’t believe I get to live this life!”

I encourage you to ask God to come and meddle in your life today!  Get excited about listening to the Holy Spirit speak to you throughout your day and be obedient.  Be expectant!  Expectancy is the breeding ground for miracles.

Are you prepared to ask God to meddle today?
