“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:27-30 (NIV)
The unforced rhythms of grace! A must read that will transform your life from worry to freedom when you allow God’s grace to be sufficient to meet whatever challenge you may be facing today. It may be sickness, lack, financial struggles or something else. The truth is God’s grace is available to meet every need. We just need to allow His strength to be made perfect in our weakness.
This morning I heard the Spirit say “There is grace in your story!” I was sharing with a friend that transitioning into a new chapter along life’s journey is never easy, yet God’s grace is sufficient. The Apostle Paul shares with us in 2 Corinthians 12:9, God’s “grace is sufficient” …His “power is made perfect in weakness.”
Shortly thereafter, I sensed the Holy Spirit illuminate what He was saying as it relates to me. After the loss of my son Jon, I was concerned about moving forward with some things I had started before his untimely death. Some days I didn’t have the energy to press through the waves of grief after putting his things in order. God has a uncanny way of letting me know that I don’t have to force myself to do anything but to continue to allow His grace to to carry me through the process.
Finding rest in our weariness oftentimes seems difficult. The Message Bible’s paraphrase of Jesus’s invitation in Matthew 11:27-30 begins, “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? . . . Walk with me and work with me. . . Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.”
Definition of unforced. : not forced: such as. a : done or produced naturally or with minimal effort a genuine,
This is why I call God Father. He always has His pulse on what is happening with me and never fails to provide Fatherly guidance and wisdom to help me navigate through life.
Life was never designed to make you weary nor tired. We can easily become driven by care, worry, and ambition rather than led by the Holy Spirit. As we navigate through life and it’s many challenges, we can find grace to meet every need. God’s grace will invigorate you, restore your strength, and energize your life. Our part is to allow His grace to meet whatever need we may have and to live at peace (shalom) knowing that He has everything under His control. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27 (NIV)
Have a blessed and prosperous day! 💕💕🙏🏼🙏🏼
