Welcome to Day 22! God is reminding us in today’s devotional to Dust Off Your Dreams.
I don’t know about you but I have some dreams that have yet to be fulfilled. In fact, some appear to have died, but I am not giving up (and nor should you). On Friday’s Weekly Wrap Up Pastor Chisholm reminded us that God allows some dreams to die before He resurrects them (e.g., the story of Lazurus). Stephanie so eloquently reminded us today on the Morning Prayer that dry bones can live (see Ezekial 37) . Therefore, boldly speak life into your seemingly dead situations.
Also, we are continuing with our theme: The Exodus – Moving from Here to There. In others words moving from our will to His. During our time of fasting God has revealed 4 powerful principles to get us moving from here to there. His will is that we:
- Believe we are Protected (Week 1)
- Embrace His love (Week 2)
- Dream BIG! (Week 3)
And for Week 4 we are being instructed to Rest. Amen, what a powerful and timely word from our King. You know the saying “too blessed to be stressed?” Well that needs to be your motto this week and for the rest of your life. And this can be a reality if you simply rest in Him.
Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). Likewise, God is commanding us to rest in Him and to stop our self-efforts as they only lead to worry and frustration.
God doesn’t need for you to fix your marriage, He’s already done that. He doesn’t need for you to worry about your bills, they are already paid. He doesn’t need for you to stress about your health, you are healed. He just needs for you to rest in Him and do only what He is instructing you to do. Remember when you rest, He works.
With God all things are possible,
P.S. We are half way to the goal. Let us know how you are doing below!
