“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9
It’s Friday and that means many could find rest! Isn’t that crazy how many people wait for the weekend to find rest ? Didn’t our Lord tell us that He will renew our strength and give rest to the burden? This post isn’t to remind you what day it is and that you could finally sleep in. This post is to tell you that you should be finding rest everyday of the week. Cast your burdens on the Lord. Give the Lord full control over things. He wants you to depend on Him, so why are we trying to be independent from Him? We truly can’t handle life without Him. Treat the father like a real Father. Run to Him, talk to him, ask for help, cry, scream; be His child!
Everything starts with a renewed mind! Remember when you accepted the Lord and decided to get baptized, you entered a new life. You can’t start a new relationship with the Lord with your old mentally. Come how you are to Him, exactly how He sees you everyday. However come to Him with expectations of change, and rapid improvement on your perspective about life. The Lord is the only one that can change anything. He can change you, your love one, your work, church, children, business, family, and etc. He is the one who is able to change everything. If you need to take this day to unwind, do it. However don’t take the whole weekend to be lazy. If you wait for the weekend to be lazy, speak to the Lord to change your lifestyle for you can find joy in working everything. It doesn’t mean working your 9 to 5, but working on yourself for God’s kingdom.
Everyday of the week comes from the Lord. It all belongs to Him. Allow Him to lead your days. When the Lord takes over, everything falls into place, and the moments fly by! He will lift you up in your weakness and become strong for you. His strength is made perfect in our moments of need. His grace is enough to run and work a whole week !
