Graced To Advance
“The soul’s craving for peace is its natural yearning for its End, it’s Maker, and it’s God. Since the soul is large enough to contain the infinite God, nothing less than Him can satisfy or contain it.”
Edward P Pusey
Do not be discouraged when you face trials of many kinds. This could be God’s instrument to captivate you. God wants to occupy every recess within. He knows your capacity. He knows what you are capable of. He knows what you can handle.
The heart is big, very big, grand in capacity. God wants it. He wants your heart. He wants all of your heart just as one might desire to own their own home. He wants total ownership so he can fully move in and make it His home. He desires to reside in your heart on the deepest levels.
Yield to His lead, He tugs at your need. He just wants all of you. I find the thought of this incredibly lovely and full of God’s Grace and comfort.
Sometimes God must let us fail at something so we can be afforded the Grace to advance.
Make this your declaration today:
You alone are God and like you there is none other.
You are the One who calms the waves and wind and makes my heart be still.
Lord—this day split the heavens like a cedar... make way.
Wrought with purpose—
I will prevail.
