It Won’t Be Easy

You will have to face difficulties, impossible situations, and fierce battles as you pursue God’s call on your life.

And through each one, Jesus 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.”

He says:

“My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭33:14‬ ‭NIV‬‬

No matter what is happening around you, you are not alone to deal with it – the Spirit of God is with you.

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 have to receive it.

Today, trust His love, power, grace, peace, knowledge, goodness,  faithfulness – take a deep breath and rest.

Awareness

If you are aware of anything today – be aware of God.

If you are afraid of anything – be afraid of getting so busy making a living that you miss making a life.

If you have to make a do to list – put living in the joy of the Lord #1.

“But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to God.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭13:11 MSG‬‬

Take care of what you need to take care of today but make room for God to interrupt, intervene and weave His perspective into each thing you must do. 

Are you so busy that you are missing God?

Are you working for God or working with God?

How will being aware of God’s presence impact you today?

May the awareness of God supercede all else and may you be filled with the peace that passes understanding lead by a Savior who loves you unconditionally and completely.
