I see you on the shore of your struggle. You have been so battered by the waves of life. You set out to sail upon the water and make your way in the world. Even after you met Me, you continued swimming in your own strength to prove to the world who you had become. If they agreed, then perhaps, you thought, it would be true. So you set out to serve, “because the least of these is the greatest”, you said to your unbelieving heart. O sons of men, how long will you turn my honor into shame? How long will you love what is of no use, and run after lies?  Ask of Me, and I will turn your eyes from looking at what is worthless;  and give you life in My ways. When you repent and rest, I will give you revelation. Rest and receive revelation. I will teach you to do My will and lead you on level ground.

John 6:29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: To believe in the One He has sent.”

John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit—the Father will send Him in My name—will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.

You search for Me diligently and yet you won’t find Me until you are willing to surrender. Surrender is necessary. It is more important than being wise and educated. It is more important than knowledge and service. It is more important than building castles and kingdoms, even if you are building them for Me. I will not be found by those who intend to use Me for their purposes. I want you to bring yourself as a living sacrifice on the altar of surrender. Then you will know My Provision, My Presence and My Purpose.You are blessed as you trust Me. But to trust in Me, you must no longer trust in yourself. ~God

Jeremiah 17:5-6 Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes man his strength.

Genesis 22:8 Abraham answered, “God Himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.”

Genesis 2:14 So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. and to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”

2 Timothy 2:11 If we have died with Him , we will also live with Him.

rest boat with verse2

I want you to have a period of rest. Sometimes you walk with Me. Sometimes you walk the other way. Sometimes you walk in the right direction, but not with Me. In rest, you will come to realize which way you are walking and be able to correct your course. In rest you realize that I provide your strength. In rest you receive understanding that your god is not the work of your hands. In rest, the things that bind you, and cause you to serve the ways of the world, slip from your wrists. I want you to rest and relinquish and remember. For your strength is not in striving, but in remembering and receiving My Son. He is My provision and power for you! ~God
