Fresh Hope – Day 356

I was watching the show Dragon’s Den last week on TV. A young man came into the Den to put forward his business, hoping for an investment from one of the multimillionaires sat in front of him.

Mid way through the conversations that were going back and forth, one of the Dragons said something that was quite profound. They looked at the young man pitching his product and told him, “I can open a door for you in a second that you could spend your entire life trying to open.”

For me, this instantly painted a picture of how our relationship with God can look. We spend weeks, months and even years trying to pursue certain things, trying to take different avenues, hoping that they will lead us into places where we want to be…

While all this time, God is waiting for you to put your trust in Him and to watch Him do in a moment for you what you could spend your lifetime trying to accomplish.

At the beginning of a new year, can I encourage you to give your life, your dreams and your desires into God’s hands? Don’t try to┬ádo everything by yourself, but instead, allow Him to do for you what you cannot do for yourself.
