I often feel overwhelmed. Do you?
We’re in good company. Not too long ago, Sheila Walsh said this, “Woke up this morning feeling overwhelmed with everything I have to do this week. Then I remembered The Lord and this glorious offer..”
What glorious offer?
This one, found in Matthew 11. . .
As we wrap up our four-week study #youandGod, I want to leave you with one thought:
Because you are the Church, He lives in you.
How does that change your faith?
It means that you live in rhythm with Him.
That who you are is changed from the inside out.
It means that it alters the direction of your life, and it spills out over your relationships with people.
It means that a you-and-God relationship brings faith to life.
It pulls off the limitations and pushes you gently into His view of you and the part you play in His plan.
It means that there is more to this thing called Christianity, and when someone asks you why you believe you show them Jesus instead of a list of rules.
It means that there is rest for you internally when it’s chaotic externally.
When we grasp what it means to have a you-and-God relationship, it leads us into the harder paths of faith like forgiving and loving others. Then we begin to grow into God’s view of who we are.
We discover the deeper depths He wants us to see.
What does it mean to you to have a you-and-God relationship?
How is that changing you?
Just you and God
