For thus says the high and exalted One Who lives forever, whose name is Holy, “I dwell on a high and holy place, And also with the contrite and lowly of spirit In order to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite” – Isaiah 57:15.
The actual title of today’s devotion is “You Can Do Anything God Wants You To Do”, just didn’t want to be the kid who asks too many questions in class!So life is not about you, me or us, it’s all about Jesus. We miss the point completely when we get in that space where everything comes back to us. It’s not about us, we are involved, yes, but our consent is not needed. So no, the answer is no, you can’t do anything if you put your mind to it. You can do anything if God lets you get that far, ask the guys at the tower of Babel, they thought they had figured it out and God dealt them a quick reality check.”For I know the plans that I have for you…”, God has already mapped out our course and He has promised us good things. Satan is championing a campaign of rebellion against God’s ideals and mankind is lapping it up and turning against God to their own demise, literally. Only God is good, He wears His heart on His sleeve telling us through His Word what life is all about, what His intentions are and how to stay winning.Let wisdom prevail and sound judgment rule the day. ‘Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all’, Ecclesiastes 12:13. There are no illusions here, God is to be reverenced and obeyed. The world tells you to hustle, here is what God is saying, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart; and you will find rest. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30. We can do this, it’s what God wants us to do, and He has given us everything we need to be able to crack it, 2 Peter 1:3!**fist pump**
