So a man riding on an elephant rides up to me, while juggling plates, making tigers jump through hoops and swallowing swords and ask, “What God do you serve?”
I told him The God of Unlimited Peace, Mercy, Love and Forgiveness that my limited human mind cannot possibly begin to know but So Happily accepts!
To this he sadly turned and rode away while one of his camels spit on me!
“The LORD’s justice will dwell in the desert, his righteousness live in the fertile field. The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.” – Isaiah 32:16-18
Recently I was so very blessed to have a lesson in His quietness and confidence!
God is not a ring master and He isn’t looking for circus performers! He is looking for a relationship with you based on Who He Is and What He Did!
As long as you miss this you will forever be the man on the elephant! Why?
Because you can never do enough to measure up and you will always be trying to do more than others to show your worth and value to God instead of resting in the only true value you have which He has given you Freely!
God yearns to make you a dwelling place for His justice that was established on the cross! God is Pleading with you by the challenging moments in your life to let His righteousness live in you!
It’s a Free Gift and readily provided! It is Peace with quietness and confidence forever because you have accepted the knowledge that the Unlimited God of All the Universe Loved you enough to create this place for you by The Gift of His Son Jesus Christ!
You can’t repay it or ever deserve it – but being in it IS Peace beyond your wildest imagination because God is God beyond your wildest imagination!
Are you ready to get off the elephant yet?
