It is Ok to Slow Down and Receive what You Need from the Lord

Happy Thursday Saints.

Philippians 2:7 tells us that Jesus “MADE HIMSELF NOTHING BY TAKING THE VERY NATURE OF A SERVANT, BEING MADE IN HUMAN LIKENESS.”

In His “HUMAN LIKENESS,” Jesus experienced hunger, thirst, tiredness, and grief. And even though He had the power to perform miracles, He had human emotions and was subject to some of the limitations that we all face as human beings.

Jesus accomplished all the Father wanted Him to do, but He didn’t try to do EVERYTHING.

God didn’t create us to do EVERYTHING, and yet many of us try to live as though we have an unlimited amount of time, strength, energy, and resources. Jesus wasn’t omnipresent; He couldn’t be in two different places simultaneously. And if He was required to be somewhere else, people had to WAIT until He was AVAILABLE.

His humanity required Him to stop often and withdraw to lonely places to pray. He needed the Father’s help, strength, and guidance to fulfil His will successfully.

If you really want to be like Jesus, then you have to accept your limitations. You have to recognise your dependence on the Lord, and you need to STOP being TOO BUSY TO BE WITH GOD.

It’s not God’s will for you to be overwhelmed by your “To-Do List.” Jesus never RUSHED anywhere. It was essential for Him to arrive in the Father’s grace, with the Father’s blessing, confident of the Father’s will, and ready to follow the Father’s instructions.

If we are not careful, we can rush around, expecting to accomplish a lot, only to discover that without God, we are achieving very little for His Name’s sake.

Saints, it’s OK to slow down and receive what you need from the Lord. He wants to give your soul some REST. He wants you to accept His EASY yoke so that you two can do life TOGETHER.

Have a great day WITH JESUS. God bless and lots’a love,

Warren
