thought for the day

Deut 30:11-16

Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach….. No the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.

God does not ask unrealistic things of His people. He does not leave us to work it out alone or search for some hidden code to follow. He has set His word out for us within our hearts and minds. He has given us Jesus to dwell amongst His people, He has given us written accounts of Jesus’s time among His people. We now have the Holy Spirit dwelling and working within us. He is a loving and just Father who knows us best and has provided fully for us so that what He asks of us is possible. He overflows with mercy and grace, so our disobedience and sins are forgiven in Christ. We may fall short of all He asks of us, but He has given us Christ as both an example of how God wants us to walk but also who stands in our place and redeems us.

Take courage this day to walk in His calling, to trust Him and rest in Him, for His yoke is easy and burden is light.
