Its like God is this big teddy bear. His arms are out-stretched and he is welcoming us into his arms- to come nestle in and rest. He wants to hold us, whisper his truths of love over us and remind us of who we truly are not what we do. We make so many excuses of why we don't just simply come and receive his everlasting love. We let satan tell us we aren't good enough. We buy into the lie that we can do this on our own. God promises he will continue the work he began in us- but we are not transformed by our works, we are transformed by COMING. We are transformed by resting in our papa's arms. We are transformed by his very spirit that lives inside of us. His love goes deeper. None of the works you do will mean anything unless they come from WHO you are- a beloved child of the king. You will toil and race only to find exhaustion and frustration when you do work because you idenitity rests in it. Let the Holy Spirit empower you. Not only will he give you the energy needed- he will fill you with joy and passion as you walk out his calling. It all starts with come. Yes, this four letter word is where it all begins. Come. Come rest in your father's lap. He will not question you. He will not scold you. He will embrace you. You will feel more loved than you ever have because you are justified. You do not need to strive to be worthy of the Father's love. His son has made you worthy- you don't have to live up to anything. Just come. He is waiting with open arms for you to COME.
