Are you tired and confused ? Are you tired yet from running from one conference to another? Are you tired of trying to prove who you are to others ? Are you tired of running from one retreat to another ? Do you know who you are in Christ Jesus? Are you tired yet of competing with others? God did not make you to be like others He did not intend for you to try and work out your own salvation! God has prepared work for each of us so we do not have to compete with others.
We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
God in His wisdom has worked out our souls salvation through His Son Jesus Christ
Titus 3:5 ESV
He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit
However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them.
John 6:37 NLT
Corinthians 4:8-10 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
We don’t need to run here and there we only need to run to God’s word for clarity and peace. God does not cause confusion!
For God is not a God of disorder but of peace, as in all the meetings of God’s holy people.
1 Corinthians 14:33 NLT
God wants us to know and trust Him not every word that comes from man is from God
Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
1 John 4:1 NLT
After you’ve ran and ran and listen to others have you changed ? It’s time for us to get quite and seek the Lord ! When you’re quite and listening you can hear from God and you can stop running
If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord .
13. If you look for me whole heartedly you will find me.
Even when we are perplexed and tired God is there and willing to help us get into God’s word and stop listening to everyone else.
