I've been amazed to find that when we move with Jesus we can be at rest even when we are running. And with Jesus, we don't just run to and fro, we run with purpose. He is rest, and he is fuel all at the same time. I love him for that. I just love him.
I shared the above words with my friend just a few moments ago when commenting on her blog. And as I finished writing them, I began to sob. Just overwhelmed with the goodness of God, that's all. When you walk through dark places without stumbling that is when you really begin to see who he really is and how much he really loves you. When you are out of gas with a supernatural tank full that keeps you going, that's when God's work really gets done.
If you are going through a dark place, haunted by what might be lurking ahead, just grab hold of him, and run fearlessly free because Jesus has you, and that's all you need.
Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.
What land has God asked you to possess? What fear has he asked you to conquer? What task has he asked you to complete? What mission has he asked you to accomplish? Go forward without fear, full of his strength, and light for the journey.
