Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life! Proverbs 3:7-8 MSG
I saw this verse the other day in an e-mail and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head. Why? Because of the simple truth is speaks.
We are taught to be independent, self made people. Do whatever you have to do to succeed. But to whose definition of success? If it’s the worlds, it causes high prolonged stress. Constant worry, manipulation and seeking to control everything. Having the highest paying job, the biggest house, most expensive car, and the list goes on and on. No wonder we are such a sickly society physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally!
But when we run to God, and trust and rely on Him and the finished work of His Son on the cross. When we want to be in a relationship with Him and grow closer to Him every day amazing things begin to happen. We worry less, our stress levels go down. We don’t have to manipulate things, because we’re trusting Holy Spirit to lead and guide us. We become content with where we are, seeing the needs of others, ways we can help others achieve their goals and in the process we find everything we were desiring. We will begin to really live and thrive and we will glow with the glory of God and walk in health. So what are we waiting for?
