You Don’t Have To Go On Your Own | The Life of an Ambivert

Are you hurt? You hide it. Are you sad? You tell others your not. Are you seeking for comfort? You shout it out to the depths of your mind! This is the life we’re starting to get used to. When others approaches us we push them away, while we seek attention from people who won’t give it to us. Even so we still tend to choose to focus on ourselves and what we can do.

This is the world we live in, it is constantly growing to be more and more independent, more self-centered, more about me, me and me. We tend to over-estimate our capabilities on what we can do. To the point where when we fall we forget about everything, about love, about humility, about Him and everything he did for us.

We feel like we understand how this world works, but we don’t. We feel like we understand how people works, but we don’t. We’re trapped in a this cell of our own mind, of our own perspective. We feel like we have to keep pushing ourselves, our own selves to overcome the trials and tribulations of this world.

Let me tell you, no! Remember, remember how he loves you! Remember how you are no longer condemned! (Rom. 8:1) Remember how God took the blow so that you could be free of your cell. How God took the hit so that your eyes would be open and your chains will be undone. How he shed his blood for you.

The problem isn’t with the world anymore but it is within you. The problem is, yes he took away the chains, but are you willing to step out of your boat, out of your prison cell, out of your perspective. Because this, yes, is your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to go out and see His light, to see His perspective, to see His plans for you. So step out in faith! Because He is pursuing you.

When you step out of that door that is just the beginning of His grace. That is just the beginning of his love. Because he is calling out to you, Son I am here. Don’t be afraid of his voice, don’t be confused with him calling you His son. He doesn’t condemn you for what you do or what you did. Instead he wants to adopt you as His sons and daughters. That is his love. That yes you did something wrong, but what parent would hate his sons and daughter for doing something wrong? They would still love you the same, but they won’t settle for less, they’ll remove the dirt and correct the wrong in your heart. That is the same with our Father, with our God, who loves us enough to remove the dirt in our hearts.

That’s not where His love ends though. Because we’re still missing out on one thing. We still can’t help ourselves, we still can’t love the way he does, we still can’t live the way he does. We can’t we are weak, yes the spirit is strong but the flesh is weak. The flesh is weak.

You know what’s strong though? His love for you. His love for you that he is willing to enter you, to dwell inside of you. Because we cannot replicate His love, we would just be a false imitation of what He is. Instead he would live inside of us, and live out his love inside of us. Because he can, we can’t, but he can. He can love the way his is because he is great at being who he is. He is great at being God. We just have to let him in.

So don’t condemn yourself, don’t think your alone. Remind yourself how much He loves you. Pray constantly for His grace. Pray constantly for God to enter you, to use you. Pray that you may become a vessel for God’s greater works in this world. Believe that he is with you and you will see His love manifest into your life. Remember as it is written in Galatians 2:20.

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

Remember He is with you.
You are not alone.

“…And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
-Matthew 28:20
