I have been struggling in a certain area of my life for the past few years...I feel like the Lord is wanting me to break free from being 'performance based' with him and with how I handle others in my life. It hard for me to strike a balance between having good boundaries, and yet not being too rigid. It seems to be all or nothing with me. I either let down my guard and then it seems people walk all over me...or I go to the extreme and put up such firm boundaries that its abrasive. I seem to bounce between these two extremes. I seem to either expect too much of others...or I dont expect much of anything at all. I know the Lord doesn't want us to be critical of others or ourselves. It seems that at times I have expectations of others and myself that are just not attainable. Please pray for me and if you have any encouraging prophetic words...I would greatly appreciate it....

Hi Daisy!!

What I'm finding out in my life right now that there are just things that "I" cannot change...Only the work of the Holy Spirit can do it. I've spent majority of this year praying more in the Spirit than in English because I know that I'm praying the perfect will of God. When you read Romans 8:26 (AMP), it says...

"So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance."

Whenever we plan to NOT do something or to STOP doing something, we have already failed. This means we have set up a law for ourselves and the law (in the Word) was created to show us sin and that we can't be right on our own (Romans 3; 7; 8:3-4)...that's why God sent Jesus to FULFILL the law and gave us the Power of the Holy Spirit to do the work in us...both to WILL and DO of his good pleasure (Phil 2:13)

So I say to you...pray in your "prayer language" and allow the Holy Spirit of God to turn you away from WORKS. I must warn you...it will be an effortless change, one that you won't know has taken place until you look back over your life and realize it is gone. That's when you KNOW it's the work of the Holy Spirit....you don't even realize when it happens. Turn it over to the Lord and allow him to take it from here and you just keep living your life and serving him.

Blessings!
