You’re Already There!

StrivingWhy do we strive for things, move towards a goal, and attempt to make or wish things will happen? Is it that we want something we’ve already been given by Jesus?
Significance? Given by Jesus. Security? It’s ours. Love? Got it already. Acceptance? Done deal. Our attempts to meet these needs, when they’re already met, can lead us down paths that not only will leave us with an empty feeling in the pit of our stomachs, but can be very destructive as well. These paths can take us further away from Jesus.
It’s time to exercise the truth of God’s word and end our search for what’s already ours. Follow God’s advise when He says to “cease from striving and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10 NASB)
A.W. Tozer once said, “We must do worldly jobs, but if we do them with sanctified minds, they become offerings to God.” We already have significance whether we’re washing dishes or repairing someone’s car. Doing our everyday activities with Jesus, makes what is done in Him for Him, which pays eternal dividends both now and forever.
