Many of us are seeking joy & contentment in all the wrong places & we all know, based on experience, that everything we try so hard to pursue can only give us temporary joy & satisfaction. This heavy & tiresome pursuit is just a result of our half-hearted devotion & obedience to the Lord. Anything we value over God will only take away our peace & joy.
Are you tired of searching? Today, God is reminding us to start giving our “full obedience” to Him. It’s time to stop settling and making excuses why we can’t give our whole heart in total obedience to Christ. Peace & contentment will only come when we realize that Jesus is worthy of our all and that in Him we will find true satisfaction.
“Everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with Him.”– Philippians 3:8
