The Christian life is a life of rest, full of joy and glory in Christ Jesus and His finished work. Stop trying to do what only God can do. The life of faith that God has called you into is a life of rest in His Word. He promised you rest so He can work. That expectation may be taking a long time but do not be afraid or discouraged. God is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t worry! He will neither fail you nor forsake you – Deuteronomy 31:8 (MSG).
