How much do you truly depend on God as the answer to your every need- including your desire to be OK where you are?
We're in no hurry God. We're content to linger in the path sign-posted with your decisions. Who you are and what you've done are all we ever want. ~Isaiah 26:8 (MSG)
When our journey gets long we may be tempted to search for other sources of comfort. If you've been in your season of not OK for any substantial amount of time, I know you can relate. In our weariness we may try to find substitutes for Jesus, to which they all come up short.
I love that even Jesus, Son of the Almighty God, was willing to admit He was not the source of His own strength here on earth. He depended on His Father for everything and gave God the glory for what He was given to do.
Thankfully, God does not leave us suspended in a state of neutrality. He delivers us from sin's grasp and into the grasp of grace! Grace brings contentment. Romans 6:14
This should be all the source we need in our pursuit to be content where God has us. Accepting whatever circumstance God allows is not weakness, or settling for less... It is very much apart of a holy and obedient walk.
And because we are united with Christ in all His power, He is our soul source of strength to walk through life OK where we are.
Is HE your source?
