That is a very universal and true statement. I have been experiencing a long (1&1/2 yr.) stint of economic insecurity. Though my faith is strong and I think I do not dwell on the economic part, I am having my doubts. Not in faith, but in “hanging on to the economic insecurity” thinking- trying to figure out my next move, juggling my finances, etc. Joyce Meyer’s statement is making me picture God trying to pull me along and I’m hanging back saying “I’ll figure it out”. I must move up a level and let the omni-intelligence and omnipotence of God “figure it out”. In spiritual terms, I must believe and pray thusly: Yes God, I surrender, I am willing to do whatever you will- YOU have the answer and I will follow your directions!”

I must move up a level and let the omni-intelligence and omnipotence of God “figure it out” and get out of the way. In spiritual terms, I must believe and pray thusly: “Yes God, I surrender, You win, I am willing to do whatever you will- yes, YOU have the answer and I will follow Your directions!”
Thank you so much for that inspiration.
