Some days are challenging at best, and it seems that I am always going to be in the exact same condition for the rest of my life. And while that seems like the true reality because it is based on what I can see, feel, taste, hear and touch, there actually is a never ending supply of grace that I can tap into at any given moment.
This grace will enable me to rise up and take courage. When I get into that space, God’s perspective becomes the true reality.
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 2 Peter 3:8
This is one of the scriptures that helps me access the right perspective. I look at things in the natural and it seems like it will take a thousand years for me to get in shape. God says, “If you are working in your own strength, you are right. However, if you will take my yoke and learn of ME, then what would take a thousand years for you, will only take a day for me.”
His simple grace comes and lifts a heavy yoke from around my neck. Now I can work with Him, instead of against Him. Eating right and exercising becomes a joy. I enjoy taking care of my body, the temple of the Holy Spirit. And all it took was a simple, slight change in perspective.
Man, talk about grace that is amazing. So, it is my prayer that you will relax today and BeLoved Completely by your Heavenly Father. Allow Him to speak to your heart and reassure you that you are right on track and that He can accomplish in one day what it would take us a thousand years to do.
What are areas that cause you to doubt yourself or even to doubt God? I would love to pray for you. Let me know how I can in the comments below.
