In a restless heart, the seed of betrayal lay.
Maybe that’s why Scripture tells us that we can find rest in Him. Our hearts need rest and the only true place to find it is in Jesus Christ. Without Him, we are wandering about aimlessly, looking for something to hold on to – something in which we may find a glimmer of security. And it is during that time of wandering, that we begin to betray our own sense of right. That’s when we begin to hold on to anything offered by the world, because we want to feel that we belong.
The only One who completely loves you and always has your best interests at heart, is God.
You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
And you say I am held when I am falling short
And when I don’t belong, oh You say I am Yours
God is the One who gives us complete direction in a directionless world. We simply need to go to Him to find hope, instead of scrambling around in search for it. He is the One who we don’t need to impress, for Him to love us. He loves us just the way we are. And when we realise that, our love for Him will show through our lives. We will stop betraying what we believe, in order to gain the favour of the world. The song in our hearts needs to be, “You take the whole world, but give me Jesus, no turning back… no turning back.
Have an awesome day!
