Acceptance of our troubles and flaws is key because it puts us in a state of allowance and flow enabling God and the universe to work what needs to be worked in us and through us. We have been taught to believe negative circumstances mean we are bad people but this is the furthest from the truth.
The truth is this, God loves you so much that we will be sharpened and made more and more like God through our existence and circumstances on this earth. (Psalms 34:18-24 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. 19 The righteous person may have many troubles but the Lord delivers him from them all;)
In becoming more like God, He has to make us aware of what needs to be right within us and we can only be made aware through our life’s circumstances which stem from our hearts, our circumstances don’t define us, they reveal us. Our hearts MUST be made clean and pure in order for our Godliness to manifest at its purest form. We can’t make our own hearts pure, God has to do that and He will once we accept (not cover it up or act like its not there) what ever is causing negativity in us and around us and then allow Him to make it right.
When we resist the lessons life needs to teach us, more of what we don’t want will continue to flow in our lives until we clearly see and understand the lesson at hand. (Philippians 3:1 Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you. ) Then and only then will the problem, situation or discontent diminish.
Accept and allow God to do the work. We cannot do anything separate from God, separate from the life from which everything and everyone flows. Move yourself out the way and just watch how your life changes. God already knew what you’re struggles would be. You’re struggles don’t make you bad; the struggles reveal what needs to be made right.
Everything is about perception, once we see life lessons as lessons of love and purification for us, we will accept it and not reject it…when we are in a state of presence, allowance is inevitable. When we resist, we place ourselves in a closed box, which swallow us with feelings of defeat. When we resist what needs to take place, more of it seems to flood us, whatever that may be. The continuation of bad relationships, lack, pride and so on are manifestations of our internal state of resistance and literally stops the flow that breaks that negativity. Accept and allow God to work magic in you and your life, mind as well start now! We all know, what we resist, definitely persist.
