God’s will is perfect.
His ways are good.
There is nothing better than to obey Him.
No one ever said it would be easy.
Infact, Jesus referred to it as bearing one’s cross.
Matthew 16:24 KJV — Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
It means to die.
To surrender our lives into God’s hands.
Which is why I’m resting today.
I’ve been struggling since I came back from down south.
My asthma has been causing me problems.
Therefore, I wasn’t too surprised when the Lord told me to stay in bed today.
Yes, there is homeschooling to do.
Yes, there is laundry.
Yes, I’m going to stay in bed and let my family handle it.
Obedience is better than trying to force things to happen as I think they need to be.
And I can praise God while I surrender my agenda into His hands.
What an incredible God He is!
He gives me exactly what I need, whether I realize it or not.
Philippians 4:19 KJV — But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
And today, I need rest.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your faithfulness. Your love is ever abounding and I am humbled. Jesus, I surrender my day, my thoughts, and my ideas to You. Please help me to remain at rest in Your direction and to walk in Your will. Lord Jesus, please supply those things which are needed. Please guide and direct us. Lord Jesus, please help us to see through Your perspective, that we might not chase after anything but You. I love You. Thank You for first loving me. Amen.
