The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven’t yet come to the end of themselves. We’re still trying to give orders, and interfering with God’s work within us.
We want to have it all and do it all, and we become upset when it doesn’t happen. Then we notice that God gave others characteristics we don’t have, we respond with envy, jealousy and self-pity.
First, believe. Believe God loves you and made you for His purposes. Believe you’re not an accident. Believe you were made to last forever. Believe God has chosen you to have a relationship with Jesus, who died on the cross for you. believe that no matter what you’ve done, God wants forgive you.
Second, receive. Receive Jesus into your life as your Lord and Savior. Receive his forgiveness for your sins. Receive his spirit, who will give you the power to fulfill your life purpose.
