Summary: This is what God says, when you feel like your too tired and life's getting you down. I will give your rest, rest like you can't even imagine, the way God intended for you to always live from the beginning! Amen?
Probably one of the earliest things we learn when we are children is, holding our parents, to the promises they make.
Children are tenacious, they are persistent, they quickly learn how to get their way,
When they get a No...that doesn't stop them. No it's on to the other parent, back and forth until they get an okay!
Many a parent have been manipulated by a child,
and said okay and then lived to regret it?
It doesn't matter father, mother said it was okay....and father says, well okay if your mother says it's okay, then it's okay!
And then later gets the blame, because the child says, but dad you said....
But I only said it because your mother said it.....no, dad you said it was okay....
I think maybe that's why someone wrote the song, "Be careful little ears, what you hear" because once they hear what they want, they never forget, do they?
Sometimes we need to be more like children when it comes to our walk with The Lord and claiming the promises in the word.
A lot of times, things will get heavy, burdens will become hard to bare and we need to remind God of what He has said.
Fact is, we're the ones who need to be reminded of what He has said, He has never forgotten, but sometimes we do.
And that's when we should turn to the word and stand and hold fast, to what it says!
That's what Jesus did when He was tempted by the devil, He said listen up devil, this is what My Father has Said,
"it is written you shall not tempt The Lord God"
This is what God says when you think things are impossible
Luke 18:27-30 NKJ
27 But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”
28 Then Peter said, “See, we have left all and followed You.”
29 So He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God,
30 who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life.”
Never Grow weary in giving of yourself or your finances to the kingdom of God, He will take care of you, now and forevermore! Amen?
God wants you to know, that He is your source for everything and you can depend on Him!
This is what God says, when you feel like your too tired and life's getting you down.
I will give your rest, rest like you can't even imagine!
Matthew 11:28-30 MSG
28-30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Grace, once you really get ahold of it, will allow you to live freely and lightly, like you never have before... the way God intended for you to always live from the beginning! Amen?
This is what God says, when you think nobody loves you...God says, I Love You!
and His words aren't idle words, He means what He says and they are life giving words!
John 3:16-18, 34-36 MSG
16-18 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.
34-36 “The One that God sent speaks God’s words. And don’t think he rations out the Spirit in bits and pieces. The Father loves the Son extravagantly. He turned everything over to him so he could give it away—a lavish distribution of gifts. That is why whoever accepts and trusts the Son gets in on everything, life complete and forever! And that is also why the person who avoids and distrusts the Son is in the dark and doesn’t see life. All he experiences of God is darkness, and an angry darkness at that.”
