332 The Blockage

“Jesus called out with a loud voice, Father, into Your hands I commit My Spirit” (Luke 23:46).

The absolute trustfulness of Jesus in You during His time one earth amazes me. It was not only that He chose always Your will (John 6:38) but that He entered into situations where He did not even have a choice, with never a moment’s fear or doubt: completely helpless in the womb and as a young child; completely helpless in the grave with absolutely no power of His own.

In my head this isn’t amazing at all – of course He knew and trusted You absolutely. But in my humanity and life’s experience, it is almost beyond comprehension. As a man Jesus did these things, without resource to His godship. I can’t imagine never experiencing doubts and fear. Being unable to control my own destiny is very fearful for me.

This is the foundation cause of all your problems. The basis of sin is independence from Me, your Maker. As long as you are hanging onto any independent control of your life, there will be a blockage to all the freedom and power that is ordained for you. But do not fear. My gentleness and love temper all My dealings with My children. I will complete what I have begun in you in a manner you can cope with (Philippians 1:6) and you will experience great joy as a result.
