THE 4th OF JUNE
LIFE IS THE EASIEST WHEN IT IS LIVED WITH GOD
It is vain for you to rise up early, to retire late, to eat the bread of painful labors; for He gives to His beloved even in his sleep. – Psalms 127:2
Most of us have had seasons in our lives when it seemed that nothing would ever work out and that things would never get better. But praise God, we were wrong! It was in those times that we learned the most valuable lessons. Those times made us realize that no matter how hard a person tries, if one is not following Jesus closely and not “yoked up with Him,” life can be very hard, with difficult labor and producing little or no reward.
Jesus wants to do the hard part in our place, and He is more than able to do so. Receiving His help through the Holy Spirit, our perfect Helper, is all we need as beloved children of God.
God loves all people, but those who do not love Him too, miss out on the most important benefits of His love. When we live with God and do everything unto Him, giving Him all the glory for all that is good in us and in our lives, the Lord pours out His blessings into our lives. Our work seems easy when we are full of God’s love, peace, and joy.
What a blessing it is to follow God, study His Word, know His will, understand more of who He truly is and what He has in store for us and be in constant communion with Him in prayer and worship.
Oh Lord, it is so true that as long as I love and obey You, my work seems easier and more pleasant. My life is constantly improving as I get closer to You and know You and Your will more. There is nothing that can compare to having You as Lord, Father, best friend, and companion, all the time. Thank You so very much for all You did for me and all You constantly bless me with! Glory and honor to Your Holy Name forever and ever. Amen
