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).
I want you to know that God doesn’t need anyone else’s permission to elevate you. Your relationship with God doesn’t need anyone else’s approval. God doesn’t need anyone else’s permission to bless you. God doesn’t need anyone else’s permission to step into your situation. And nothing can defeat His promises for you. He said in Isaiah 55:11 (MSG), “So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them”.
He who began a good work in us is able to complete it. Rest and lay aside every weight today. On the day of your miracle, your expectation will not be cut short!
People may not see where you’re going. They may not think much of you. They may take you lightly. But God doesn’t. He has big plans for you and this is the day the Lord has made, so be filled with expectation. You might not know how long it will take you. But know that there is an end, God only has thoughts of Shalom towards you and your expectations will not be cut off! He has already made a way for that thing. It’s already done in Jesus’ Name. No matter how far down the road, the Lord is able to bring those things to completion. He who began a good work in us is able to complete it. Rest and lay aside every weight today. On the day of your miracle, your expectation will not be wrong!
