Your Life Isn’t Tough for God.
We are conditioned to think that everything is going to be hard. But Jesus said, “Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
The enemy would like to pull your focus away from your relationship with the Lord and onto your situation or whatever is going on around you.
God gives you promises, because promises are relational. They build relationship and trust. He doesn’t give promises to your circumstances, He gives them to YOU. Promises are a guarantee of who He is going to be for you in that moment.
Your life isn’t tough for God. He knows what He can do.
The enemy always wants to divert us from relationship onto our circumstances. To pull your face away from who Jesus is, and start looking at what’s going on around your life. Start looking at who you’re not.
God gives His promises because promises are relational. A promise is not circumstantial.
God doesn’t give a promise to circumstances. He gives it to you.
He gives it to you, as a guarantee of “this is what I’m going to be for you. This is who I am right now.” My favorite question of all time is, “Lord, what is it You want to be for me now that this is happening that You couldn’t any other time? Thank You so much for this problem. What is it You want to be from it? Who do You want to be for me in this?”
I love that question. Because the opens up my heart. Promise is designed to create fellowship, and build relationship and trust
For the enemy, to negate your promise, he has to shift your attention off the promise onto your circumstances or onto your provision. He wants you to understand how difficult your life really is. And Jesus wants you to understand that you’re not much of a challenge. Jesus wants you to understand how how easy your life can be.
The world locks is in to difficulty, to chaos. That’s why the news is almost always bad. And we get driven by that mindset. We are conditioned to think that everything is going to be hard.
Jesus said, “Come to me, those who are weary and heavy laden, and I’ll give you rest. I’ll teach you how to live in a place of peace above all that. You’ll find peace for your soul rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy. And my burden is light.”
He’s only looking after 7.3 billion people. “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Your life is not tough for God because He knows what He can do.
