Bible Verse for Today
“But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code.” (Romans 7:6)
One of the reasons many people are so exhausted and burned out is that they go their own way instead of following God’s plans. We must pay attention to the direction of the Holy Spirit. Then we know what we are working on and what we should use our energy for. It is important to say “yes” when he says “yes” and “no” when he says “no”. If we obey the guidance of God, we will achieve what he has told us to do and live in peace.
If we obey the guidance of God, we will live in peace
Romans 7:6 says that we can serve God in a new way. We can remember countless times where we were tired, and the Holy Spirit wanted us to rest. However, we forced ourselves to do something with other people. After that we were completely exhausted instead of just tired. And exhausted people are usually indignant or impatient.
But when we obey the Holy Spirit, Jesus is glorified. Ask yourself: Are you exhausted or is Jesus glorified? Are you following the Holy Spirit and honoring him through your life? Please answer these questions honestly and make some conclusions. That may change your life and it’s direction.
