A "Zillion" thoughts whirring in my mind,

and so many errands left to run for the assisted living outreach, BUT I just had to share this.

"Law is not liberty, but if there is a move of God within you, God has written His laws in your heart so that you may delight in Him. God desires to set forth in us a perfect blending of His life and our lives so that we may have abounding inward joy- a place of reigning over all things, not
a place of endeavor. There is a great difference between an endeavor and a delight."

I see so many today who have made Christianity a list of DOs and DON'Ts; working so hard at trying to be Christian and quit because it's too hard. Sorry to say, they have missed the whole point entirely!

It is a RELATIONSHIP, not a religion. When we are in a relationship with the Creator of the universe,
the Saviour, Jesus...God Himself, we obey His word out of love. Obeying becomes a delight!
We don't have to endeavor to "get it right". We live and move and have our being in Him.
He makes all the difference!

The above quote comes from the book, Smith Wigglesworth Devotional. Whitaker House is the publisher. I HIGHLY recommend this book! It's easy to read and is a wonderful way to begin the day. I read the devotional for the day and all the scripture and I feel as though I have had a delicious feast.
Get it if you can! :)
