His arms stretched wide open. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”*. God wants you to come to Him in every situation. He is the author and the finisher of your faith. He already knows the outcome of the situation you are in. We’re His children and He is our Father. A loving Father that sent His son to die for us on the cross, the wonderful cross. The moment Christ died on the cross, He forgave our sins and now we are free in His name. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” He loves you and cares for you, therefor He says in His word “Cast your anxieties on God, because He cares for you”.**
He loves you and want the best for you.
** 1 Peter 5:7
A long road walked and there is no sign of hope, but wait suddenly in the far there stands a man with a wide robe. Suddenly a new hope is stirred inside and you are drawn near the man with the white robe. The moment you come closer you just experience an unconditional love from the man in the white robe. You’re touched by His compassion and undeniable presence. All that you can do before the man in the white robe is bow before Him and say ‘Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, the One who is and is to come.’ He has come to give you hope and new life, a future that is full of divine encounters. He is excited for your future.
Keep on running to God, even though the road seems long and dry.
He is waiting for you at the finish line.
“All who are thirsty, all who are weak, come to the fountain, dip your heart in the stream of life.”
Sometimes in life we get to busy with our own things and forget about the things of God. Therefor it is important to come to the fountain of life and to drink of it and experience new energy from God. Washed by the blood of Jesus we become still before our Lord. We must hear what He says to us: ” I love you My child, keep on walking in My will.” When Jesus talk to us , we must remember it, because the words He speaks over us are true.
Therefor remember: “Be still and know He is God”
The believer that led a young stranger to Christ heard everything the young man has done. He has been a faithful steward of God’s word. One day the young believer asked the man: ” How do one do greater things than Jesus did on earth?” The believer told him that he must dwell into the word of God more and more. He also told the young man that he should ask God to help him in this question and that God may answer it. God will give you the desires of your heart. The young believer was filled with excitement about what God is going to do. He thanked the man. The young believer started to spend more time in the word of God and asked God the question he has been pondering on. He heard the Lord telling him that: ” If I give this unto you, don’t run after miracles, but keep your focus on Me.” The young believer was filled with awe.
Good and faithful steward. You’ve done well. Keep on fighting the good fight of faith.

The believers started to grow in their relationship with Christ. That meant that they knew what God said about them in His word and that is crucial. The reason why they must know that their identity lies in Christ, is for when the devil tries to attack their character, that they can stand in the identity and authority given by Christ. With their identity being set in Christ, the devil was scared for them. Why? because he knows how mighty God is and that they are walking in the authority given by God unto them.
Therefor remain in that authority given by God, because every step you take closer to God and the more you walk in His will, the more the devil will try to attack you with lies. The reason for the attack will be to confuse you and deceive you into not following your calling in God.
You’re His people and He cares for you. Your identity and authority lies in Him.
