I stopped looking for a new job, I learned to enjoy that position, and appreciate what I had. Soon I began praying for my supervisor and co-workers. Eventually, I found that each day at the job I was completely at peace. I had the victory over the circumstance and when I learned this lesson about rest, God sent someone to offer a new job that was a promotion. Our God not only teaches us and loves us, but he gives us exceedingly abundantly more! All we have to do is believe and rest.
Beloved— stop fighting. Stop worrying. Stop trying to prove yourself to God and men. When you accepted Christ, you received victory over every attack and circumstance. In Matthew 11:28 Jesus says:
come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Release all your burdens today. All you have to do is believe and rest in God’s grace.
Faith, Hope and Love,
Christian A. Friend
