Downshift!

It’s time to shift our hearts to a place of readiness for God’s instruction. I was burying my desires in earthly desired treasures not realizing that God’s focus is on something much bigger. People. And the imperative trust I need to keep in Him. I was easily caught up with Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart”. I believe that scripture to be true but most of my delight was with a heart of delight of doing just enough to get what I want. It does not work that way at all. God desires especially those who say they believe in Him through His Son Jesus to know His love. He said to me in 1 Timmy 2:4 – “..who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth”. Well since Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life I must commit to a relationship with God through Christ who is the truth. You will grow very tired of playing tug of war with God because you will lose and He will win. He always does. There is a great relief and contentment which brings good gain to you if you would stay still, watch, and wait for Him. (1 Timothy 6:6) The flow is better! Easier!
