Work Load Con' t from Col. 2
Remember this the next time, and there will be a next time, I assure you. If your little hut is burning to the ground, it could be the smoke signal that summons the grace of God. Remember God's will never put you in a situation or place his grace will not cover.
We say "It's impossible." God says "The things that are impossible with men are possible with God." (Luke 18:27).
We say: "I am too tired,"
God says "Come unto Me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
We say "Nobody loves me,"
God says "For God so loved the world, that He gave His uniquely born son, that who ever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
We say "I can't forgive myself,"
God says I forgive you: "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." I John 1:9
We say "I can't manage," Paul writes, "But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
If you don't know this caring God, you can get to know Him right where you are by asking Him to come into your heart and give you wisdom and strength.
