RUN/REST Day 38
Today, you can rest safely knowing that Jesus has experienced the same hardships we are facing, and yet overcame them all.
📖 𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗: Mark 6:1-6
Jesus performed miracles no one had seen before. One time he went to his hometown, a place where he was well known, and yet, despite the incredible things he did, the people there did not believe in him. Why don’t you think they wanted to listen to him?
Just like Jesus, despite our accomplishments, or the good that we do, some people won’t listen to us, recognize us, or believe us. Is the fact that even Jesus felt rejection a comfort to you? Can you rest in what Jesus says about you and believe that he says you are enough, regardless of what others think? Say a prayer of gratitude that Jesus has experienced the emotions you are experiencing, and that you are not alone in your emotions. This can give us peace in situations when we feel like we’re not enough for people, or that our accomplishments aren't enough to win someone’s approval. Thank Jesus for affirming that you are enough, and that you can live from his approval of you.
