Work with Me, People

Sometimes I can imagine God saying, “Work with me, people”.

I have offered you

  • love
  • redemption
  • peace
  • joy
  • strength for each day
  • goodwill
  • grace
  • provision
  • abundant life
  • direction
  • rest
  • purpose
  • righteousness
  • guidance
  • abundant life
  • eternal security

but you continue to go your own way.

You seek the temporal over the eternal,

lust over love,

license over liberty,

greed over grace,

rioting over righteousness,

consumption over contentment.

I have offered you the fruit of the Promised Land, but you continue to chew on the husks of Satan’s harvest.

  • your desires,
  • your control,
  • your choices,

and they are taking you down.

Choose Me. Come to Me.

Release your perceived control into My capable hands.

Come to Me, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11: 28 Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Luke 15:17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
