Are you worn out trying to meet all the expectations that surround you?
Today’s attached devotional will help you sort them out. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
“What sayest thou, sinner? Wilt thou have this help? ‘Have it?’ thou sayest, ‘have it? Yes, but I am not worthy.’ Now, away with that nonsense! Have I not told thee that the Lord comes to bless thee, not because of thy worthiness, but because of his grace? ‘What am I to do to have it?’ Thou hast nothing to do but take it. He freely gives it to thee. ‘But surely there is something expected of me.’ Thou art a fool if thou expectest anything of thyself but sin. All thy expectation of good must be from God. Thou mayest expect great things of God, and then there will be great things wrought in thee; but what thou hast now to do is just to accept the infinite mercy of God, and submit to him as the clay on the wheel yields to the hand of the potter, that he may mold and fashion thee, and make thee to be a vessel of mercy fitted for his use.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLI, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1895), p. 380]
