Our lives may not always be storm-free and risk-free, but we received so much more in Christ. We received the assurance that despite heavy winds and violent storms, we will be protected, unshaken, and secure because Christ’s love surrounds us. We are living in a fortress that won’t be brought down. Its foundation is Jesus’ great grace.
I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He may give it to you.
Mike Bickle says it best. He says, “There’s two kinds of people in the the world—in the body of Christ; there’s lovers and there’s workers, and lovers will always get more work done than will workers.” Lovers will actually have more done in the realm of obedience than a slave will, but it’s because they’ve tapped into another resource in their heart and that is what’s available in the realms of passion and intimacy—friendship.
