Gods Unlimited Deal

dec 11“A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son (Jesus), whom I have chosen; listen to him.”
Luke 9:35 (NIV)

Tis the season to shop, shop, and shop. Black Friday and Cyber Monday tempted us with the “best bargains.” My kitchen counter is cluttered with sales ads offering “money back for money spent.” My email has been bombarded with “limited deals for today only” – funny thing is I got that same email yesterday. If we’re not careful, we will find ourselves listening to the voice that sounds too good to be true and overspending will be our reward.

Ever find yourself falling into that trap? All those little receipts start to fill up our wallet, and when we sit down to balance the budget it just isn’t pretty. Too many withdrawals and not enough deposits.
Ever feel that way yourself? Life can be draining and crazy. Too many things to do and too little time to wipe them off the list. Morning evaporates between kisses goodbye and dinner baking in the oven. Homework clutters the counter as clothes spin in the dryer. Unfinished work bombards our minds even though the office is miles away.

If we’re not careful, we will find ourselves listening to the wrong voices and emotional overload will be our only reward. Tis the season to guard our minds and schedules. No matter what the world offers, God’s voice is still the deposit that empowers us despite our withdrawals. He whispers – my yoke is easy and my burden is light. He offers rest even in the midst of overload. And when we are energized by God, we can embrace the balanced life that glorifies Him.

“Father it is so tempting to exchange our good for Your best. Help us to surrender our agenda at Your feet and allow You to unclutter our lives.”

For His Glory
