That dull knife made me wonder if that is how it is with our spiritual walk. We go through life just trying to get by in life. We worry our way through everything. Life is just so tough at times. We get tired and we want to just give up. We become anxious and overwhelmed and we wonder: Why is this not working!
Well, like me trying to cut that steak yesterday with the wrong tool. I believe we are trying to get through life without the proper tools Christ has given us: The Holy Spirit and the Word of God. “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify me Me, for He will take of what is mine and declare it to you.” (John : 16:13-14). We weren’t meant to walk through this life on our own. We have a guide, helper, comforter that we can trust to lead us into all truth. Below are some more verses that bring me comfort:
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls (Matt. 11:28).
