Feeling Weary?

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 11:9)

Feeling Weary? Jesus Christ, the Word of God made flesh (John 1:14) says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you (the battle is not yours, it’s the Lord’s) and learn from Me, for I am gently and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy (His work is finished) and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV.

Do you know why there is rest in Him, well according to Isaiah 40:28-29 and 31, “The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary.” The word goes on to say that, “He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

Believers if you find yourself feeling weary cease from your works and effort and rest in Christ’s efforts and finished work, His yoke is easy because when you come to Jesus, who never faints or gets weary; you draw on and receive His strength, His unshakeable, unwavering faith, belief and power. Christ is asking you to come to Him and He will give you rest. Rest from your weariness, rest from your burdens, rest from your efforts, your struggles, your faith and belief and He will be your faith, Christ will be your belief, He will be your strength, He will fight your battles, He will be all that you need and more, HE WILL BECAUSE HE CAN.

Be free men and women of God, let go of yourself and your works, the word of God says that it is by His stripes (His efforts not ours) that we are healed. Let go, put your trust and hope in Him, knowing that He is able.  Give it all to Christ and Rest in the Great I am.

Let us therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish.” Hebrew 4:11

The Doubt Battle

The Doubt Battle

A man brings his son who has been possessed by a spirit to Jesus, the man says,

“If you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.”

“ ‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”

Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” Mark 9: 14-24

Another word for unbelief is doubt and according to the Oxford English Dictionary doubt is defined, “as the uncertainty as to the truth or reality of something, and inclination to disbelieve.”  According to the word of God, “God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.” (Romans 12:3). Oftentimes when our minds are plagued with doubts, fears and unbelief we question our faith, when in fact it is because we have faith that we battle with doubts, fear, and unbelief.

The word of God says that, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Tim 1:7). This means that fear, doubt and unbelief are weapons of the enemy; weapons designed to attack and weaken the faith that God has placed inside of us. “There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans:8:1) If you are dealing with doubt don’t beat yourself up about it, don’t get down on yourself, don’t condemn yourself, God has already set you free. We can overcome our doubts and unbelief with the victorious word of God. God, who is the author and finisher of our faith, says, “Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (1John 4:4)

When fear and doubt arise inside of you focus not on what you feel or think but on what God says about you and He says you are more than a conqueror Romans 8:37.
