Yes, you heard that right!
Did you know that you are made the way you are for a reason? God made you to bring Him glory. So, when he created you he gave you everything you needed to accomplish this work.
You don’t have to strive. You just have to accept. Accept who He made you to be, where He has placed you, and how He has equipped you.
This rabbit race we are in is not his intention or desire for us. We need to stop the cycle. We need to rest. Rest in HIS goodness.
Eventually, because we are made new in Christ, we will make those decision that align with his will without a second thought. We won’t be trapped anymore. We will be free.
Because God is God and because he already paid the price – we don’t have to do anything.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is a gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. – Ephesians 2: 8-9
There is nothing you can do besides accept the free gift of salvation, rest in his presence, and let the transformation take place as it will. He loves you. He always has and always will. Just the way you are.
