#11 – Strive or Abide

Good morning lovely people.

There’s a fine line between striving and abiding and sometimes I’m not sure which side of the line I am on. Sometimes I feel like I am never doing enough in my walk with God. Is there any of you who feel the same? I don’t want to strive but I do want to do all I can to live a God-honouring life. My desire, like yours, is pure and I truly want to walk closely with God and bring Him pleasure. I also want to bear fruit and do His will. I just need to ‘try harder’, right? Wrong.

This morning I feel the Lord say I need to abide more and strive less. I need to accept the divine exchange that has already taken place; new for old, life for death, holiness for sin, intimacy for separation
