Stop Meddling and Trust God!

It is easy to say we trust God and then continue to meddle in His affairs.  When we interfere in the lives of others or continue to disregard his direction for our own lives, we are meddling in his affairs.  Meddlers are people who never seem to be able to leave things alone.  They intrude into other people’s affairs or business; often think they know better than everyone else, rarely listen to a person before offering their input, second guess themselves and jump to the wrong conclusions.

We can all be meddlers at one time or another, meddling most in the plans God has for our lives.  We think we know God's plan and then start to meddle as if he needs our help to make things happen.  We commit to letting him take the lead in our lives, but when it doesn't seem to be going the way we feel it should, we quickly move into the drivers seat and take control.

God's word tells us in Psalm 46:10, be still and know that I am God.  Be still does not simply mean don't move; it means much more.  When God tells us to be still, He is telling us to cease meddling, let him take control, rest easy, rejoice and trust Him.  Why him, because he is God; he is the creator of all things and can make the impossible, possible.  Learn to stop meddling in God's plans, to be still, and trust God!  Just a little advice to go!
