Are you going after God’s purpose for your life?
If so, then be prepared to face difficulties, deal with impossible situations, and fight some fierce battles.
Through each one, Jesus says He will lead you to rest in the security of His love.
To pursue the power of His peace.
To find and capture the truth that is the freedom He died for you to live in.
God doesn’t say, “it will be easy” nor does He say, “there will be no battles.”
God’s promise is that His rest is yours. His peace is yours. His freedom is yours.
You don’t have to earn it, you simply have to receive it.
Jesus said in Matthew 28:18-20, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” NIV
No matter what you are facing today, you are not alone to deal with it, the Spirit of Jesus is with you.
Jesus said that when you go after God’s purpose for your life, He will be with you always.
Living a life of purpose isn’t easy.
Going after what God has called you to do, isn’t easy.
So you have to know that you are not on your own to do it.
Jesus is with you.
Today, trust Him.
Then go out and do what He has called you to do with the power of His love, grace, peace, knowledge, goodness, and faithfulness working in your life.
Thank you for this reminder. I know in my heart that He is with me always – but me head is stubborn and often thinks I have to do it on my own.
