Good Afternoon Church Family,
How are you all fairing today? It is okay to not be okay with our situation! It is normal to experience extra sensitivity and emotion at a time like this. So what do we do in a situation like this. Oswald Chambers says “It is never God’s will that we should be anything less than absolutely complete in Him. Anything that disturbs rest in Him must be cured at once, and it is not cured by being ignored, but by coming to Jesus Christ.”” In other words, 1 Peter 5 v 7 says “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
Not finding rest in Christ is not something to beat ourselves up about, rather it is an opportunity to take our deepest concerns to Him in prayer. The more this becomes a habit for us, the more we will learn what it means to abide in Him and the more we will be able to reach beyond to the hope we have in Him.
