Only God Can Do It

Guess what one of the hardest things for us to do, is, regarding God’s grand design for our lives?

Nothing.

Yet, no matter what we face daily, there seems to be a pretence that we ”must” act in order to achieve what is needed.

God reminded me this morning of the Scripture found in Isaiah 30:15:

“This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength.”‬

In truth, there are only three things that God has ever ”required” from each of us…

That we will return to Him in repentance and rest in our salvation, and also, to love God, and love others for all of our days – that’s it

Salvation comes from God alone, and because of this, we need to learn to quiet our minds of needing to be someone, or the need to do something, to trust Him and be peacefully confident that He will give us Godly strength to face whatever life throws at us

Friends, so many of us try to do things in our own strength because we feel ”we have to” but truthfully, the most profound thing that I have learnt, is to reduce my ”busyness” and my ”endless efforts” to achieve, and allow God to move in my circumstances

God spoke four words in this Scripture which are extremely powerful for us to remember this morning…

Repent…

Rest…

Quiet Yourself…

Trust

Therefore, let me encourage us to not be like Judah and look to others to save them, when Isaiah spoke these words. But instead, let’s look straight to God and allow Him to do what He does best…save His children

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
