But then I heard one of the pastors on the radio read a verse from Colossians 1 that spoke about the mystery of the gospel and how Christ in us is the hope of glory. And even now as I type, I cannot express to you the reality that hit me by that little phrase. I don’t even think that was the main point of his message but it really moved me. CHRIST is our HOPE in GLORY! Meaning that there is hope and there is victory because Jesus conquered all in His death and resurrection. Then the next day Tyson and I were doing our devotions and we read from Galatians 2:20 which says,
“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me: and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.”
He pointed out the underlinings in this verse and spoke further truth into my heart. That all I see now is a girl who is filled and driven by emotion, a girl who cannot stop analyzing every worry and fear in her life, a girl who cannot seem to live every moment of every day in the grace of Jesus. Though this may be all I see now, I must must must have confidence in knowing that my Savior is living in me! He is doing His work through me, not because of me, but because of Him and His amazing grace.
And in this, I…simply…rest.
I need to “live in faith”.
With faith comes rest, and with trust comes relief.
Do you need relief?
