Your Question! God’s Answer! Why Can’t I Fix Other People?

Question:      Why can’t I fix other people?       

Answer:         No one can really fix a problem for another person.  Only God can.

                        Only God can………              Change a person’s mind

                        Only God can………              enable someone to forgive

                        Only God can………              tell someone the truth

                        Only God can………              heal a wounded heart

                        Only God can………              help an individual let go of anger

                        Only God can………              restore joy in an individual’s heart

                        Only God can………              exchange heaviness/depression for praise

     And then He only does so if the individual wants Him to do so!!!                      

     Friend, get busy living out the purposes God has for you and He will bring people into your life that He wants to use you as a vessel to minister to.  No place in the Bible will you find an example of Jesus seeking after those who do not want His help.  He healed and delivered thousands and thousands of individuals who came to Him wanting His help.  These individuals had willing hearts and minds to change.  In Matthew 11:28, Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

     In Genesis after Joseph was released from prison he did not seek out his family.  He could have.  He was second in command of Egypt, but he trusted them to God.  And God took care of Joseph’s needs.  Genesis 41:51 states, “And Joseph called the name of the first born Manasseh:  For God, said he, hath made me forgot all my toil, and all my father’s house.”

     Dear Heavenly Father, forgive me for attempting to do only what you can do.  I renounce the lie that I have any power to fix or heal.  I announce that I am your willing vessel of ministry to those of Your choosing not mine.   Help me to walk in truth and righteousness in order to set captives free.  Thank You for Your forgiveness.  In Jesus Name, Amen.
