Sometimes the thing you know you most need to do, is the very thing you struggle to bring yourself to do. Have you ever felt like this?
Where there’s a struggle inside you, but yet your solution is waiting for you to open the door to Him, to embrace His heart and to allow yourself to breathe in His presence and rest in His love and care for you. Your solution for everything, as a believer is always Jesus, it’s always His presence and His peace.
Maybe you’re wondering why you don’t get the things your heart desires, well, maybe it’s because His presence is all you really need but when your heart is struggling with other things, you don’t always look to Him until the end.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” – Ephesians 6:12-13
Choose To Lean In
I want to encourage you today to choose to lean into your Lord Jesus today, not matter what you’re facing, no matter what is going on in the world. Choose to hand over your worries, burdens and stress to Him and allow His presence to cover you, and give you peace and perspective. Deep down inside, you know that you are fighting but the real solution is right under your nose, you just need to surrender and choose to believe.
“Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there for he always tenderly cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
He says come and dance with me!
I hope this video reminds you to dance with your Father in heaven, to fall into His lap and to become childlike, when maybe your circumstances are pointing to the opposite. Responsibility, yes, it is true but His presence is greater than anything you might be facing, and His heart is that you don’t do anything alone, but you receive rest from Him and allow Him to help you.
“The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.” – Psalm 28:7
In return for your trust and faith, He promises to turn mourning into joy, to comfort you and to exchange all your sorrow for rejoicing so that you can live out the great purposes He’s put inside of you. God will be good to you. Despite what is happening all over the world right now, there is always hope, even though this fight may seem impossible. We have already won the battle, when we rest in Him.
“‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ (Matthew 22:37) and you must ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’
Choose today, to turn off the noise and learn to dance. You might feel like you have two left feet at first, but the more you dance, the more you will rest. Be encouraged, this is your invitation!
