Today, I missed two buses on the way to tutor and thought I was going to be about an hour late.
Before I could really stop and think, God stopped me and asked me: “What do you want?” I told Him that I wanted to get to my tutorring appointment on time. Weirdly enough I made it to the tutoring appointment 6 minutes early, not an hour late, praise God.
Rest: Come Away with Me
28-30”Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
— Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG, emphasis mine)
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,for Iam gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
(Matthew 11:28-29, NIV)
You don’t have to worry. God is big enough to take care of your shortcomings. That means you don’t have to be perfect. Go after God and everything else will work out.
Rest in the fact that God has you, so you can rest.
Love never lets go.
God wasn’t kidding when He said His promises. He is serious and He will make things happen. Claim them. Take hold of them. See them happen.
Do you know the best time to thank Jesus for His presence is when you don’t “feel” His presence? When it comes to the presence of Jesus, don’t go by your feelings. Feelings can be deceptive. Go by His sure promise that He will never, ever, by any means, leave you or forsake you! Feelings are not based on truth. God’s word is truth! Amen!
