Wait quietly in My Presence while My thoughts form silently in the depths of your being. Do not try to rush this process, because hurry keeps you earthbound… (Jesus Calling, 276).
Hurry keeps us earthbound.
Wrong priorities keep us earthbound.
Self-pity keeps us earthbound.
Worry keeps us earthbound.
Religious pride keeps us earthbound.
Any pride keeps us earthbound.
etc. etc. etc.
But Christ died for our freedom.
But because of His great love for us, God who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
If you’re feeling stuck in the mud of the earth today, focus on the Cross. Repent of the sin of worry and hurry and self-focus (I repent!) and worship Jesus.
The mud will come off. You will grow wings.
Grace and Peace,
