I’ve had one of those weeks, actually a few weeks, where the same scriptures and conversations keep coming up over and over again!
So I’m thinking that God’s trying to tell me something.
The overall theme seems to be to ‘Rest In The Lord’.
It’s true that I’m tired. And stretched. I’m over-committed as usual. I feel like I’m spinning a bunch of plates on skinny little sticks and yet, I don’t know how to stop. Hmmm….
The first scripture is Isaiah 30:15…
This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.” Isaiah 30:15
How sad is that?? The truth is, I desperately want all of that!
The other is John 3:17…
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.”
My friend Connie and I had this great conversation about how many people see the Bible as a book of Do’s and Don’t’s. Sadly, so many see God’s Word as more of a moral code than a place of rest and relaxation. The truth is, the Bible is just oozing with grace, love and incredible promises!! But you have to dig into it to see for yourself.
The overall theme of the past two weeks has been to stop fighting the battle that’s already been won. Our Savior took care of all of that for us. All we have to do is stand firm and claim the victory!!
Join me in the Happy Dance! HA!
