He Nourishes What Little Faith We Have…
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 (KJV)
I believe God is speaking this to me today.
I don’t wanna be in Egypt anymore…
I went out into the world today to go shopping and listened to some worldly music on Spotify in the car. I was fed up at the beginning of my drive with life but in prayer I was honest with God in letting Him know/reminding Him that my heart has hardened and I feel nothing. I come to Him demon oppressed, not weeping or fasting. I’ve tried and I just cannot defeat this stuff in my own strength. At all. So I came home and put on the sermon about the struggles in our faith by Pastor Charles Lawson out of Knoxville, Tennessee.
I typed this message out from a sermon by Charles Lawson called “A Bruised Reed He Shall Not Break.” ( Isaiah 42:3 )
If you’re a smoking flax or a bruised reed, He’s not gonna quench what little bit of faith is left. He won’t break that reed. He will nourish what little bit of faith you’ve got and bind you up as The Shepherd does a lamb. He will carry you further than you ever thought He would carry you. He’ll stick with you longer than you thought anybody would ever stick with you. He’ll put up with more from you than you thought anybody could ever put up with.
You’ll make promises to God that you’ll break and you’ll make another promise and you’ll break it and He’ll still be there! Because He said I’ll never leave thee and I’ll never forsake thee, and you’ll begin to learn something about Him. You’ll find out that when He says something He means it. You’ll find out that your relationship with God is built upon His Character. He’ll always, always, always be the same yesterday, today and forever. Amen.
Thank You Jesus…Praise God! †
