But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. - Jeremiah 17:7

I have found myself many times going on in a work for the Lord and at some-point realizing that the Lord let me go on ahead without Him. We have all experienced this in some ways, it is like talking to an individual on the phone but the line was disconnected yet you continue to ramble on. This is just how it is in doing a work for theLord without being in vital and intimate communion with Jesus. One of my mentors always reminded me that the safest place in our walks with the Lord was either to be following in the shadow of Jesus or holding His hand. Otherwise we are prone to run ahead of Him in our zeal for the things of God. Have you gone ahead of God in His work? Do you feel empty, tired and have been struggling in the arm of the flesh? Repent, turnaround and come back to the Lord.

Quiet yourself" in His presence and learn to hear Him again. He wants to use you for His kingdom work but we must do it out of our love and walk with the Lord. It is Gods mercy who keeps us from building a kingdom of man in the Name of the Lord. That is one of my prayers: "Lord keep me from doing a work for my glory or name, may everything I do be done for your glory." What a wonderfully happy and content person you will be in the work of God if your confidence and dependence is in the Lord and in His sufficiency. Jesus said clearly that He will build His church. But sadly he will let us build our own churches if we want to. Turn to the Lord today. Trust in him not yourself.
