Day 146- Richmond, Virginia: No Rest
When we have a task from God, there is no instruction manual on exactly how we will complete the assignment. Sure, we have the Bible to help guide us along our journey, which is very helpful. However, there are moments we need to pray for further guidance that only God can provide to us. Having clear and concise information from Jesus is the fuel to our gas tank, which also provides the direction we need to stay the course towards the destination God desire us to reach in our lifetime.
It all comes down to the effort that we put forth.
There is no rest for the true believers and for those who dedicate their lives to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. When Jesus went to pray before Judas came to betray Him, the Apostles could not stay awake as the Lord requested them to stay vigilant. We cannot allow this to happen to us. There will be days where we do more than others. We must stay prepared and ready for when God calls us to touch a life or the lives of those He seeks to make aware of His presence.
God will show us how to stay awake, when we grow weary and tired from the long road we are traveling together. There will be those who come to find God and those who fall away as they lose hope or faith in what seems like an endless voyage through a violent sea that takes us places we never thought possible. What is more important, doing it our way or following the voice of God that is teaching us how to love more and also forgive those who hurt us the most? From Acts: “But now I urge you to keep up your courage, because not one of you will be lost; only the ship will be destroyed”. With Jesus leading the way, we will have the strength to get through any storm without a single hair on our head being harmed, even if our ship sinks.
