In times of overwhelming stress, have you ever thought to yourself, I AM DONE! When you feel you can’t take one more burden, one more crisis, the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back?
If you were to take a peek inside my journal, at one point not too very long ago, you would find a page with just three words, I AM DONE!
But God didn’t let me get away with that kind of attitude for very long. In an Aha! moment, I saw clearly that that phrase, I AM DONE!, had way too much “I” in it. In reality, this was the time to say, IT IS DONE! IT not I = DONE!
Christ’s perfect work on Calvary has finished ALL of the “ITS” in my life. And in your life. He HAS DONE IT!
Try it. Take that “I” and make it “IT”. The focus will be less on you and more on Him. If you are IN CHRIST, this is His life you are living. You have given yourself completely to Him to live His life through you. Let Him do IT. Whatever your IT is: (fill in the blank with your “IT” here). This IT is His. Surrender it. Allow Him to do with it what He will.
It’s ALL His anyway. Won’t you give IT to Him now? And say with me, IT IS DONE!
