All You Need

If you are born again, all you need is what you have, and what you have is what He is! He does not give you strength - He is your strength! He does not give you victory - He is your victory!

Major W. Ian Thomas

Why is it so hard for us to rest there sometimes? Why is His grace not always sufficient in times when weakness makes the victory unclear? I don't know, but I am so glad that the Good Shepherd makes us to lie down in green pastures...He gives us rest for our souls. We grow when we are at rest and rest can only come when we know we are cared for. We see Him more vividly when we are still and hear Him more clearly when we are quiet. Our fears take flight on the wings of Love.
