Come To Me

That is the title of Chambers' devotional today. It is from Matthew 11:28 - "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest." (NASB)

Chambers starts off with asking us to think of the things about which we will not come to Jesus on. But that is our pride and our self centered approach to life getting in the way. Again.

Chambers goes on with:

"The Holy Spirit will show you what you have to do, and it will involve anything that will uproot whatever is preventing you from getting through to Jesus. And you will never get any further until you are willing to do that very thing. The Holy Spirit will search out that one immovable stronghold within you, but He cannot budge it unless you are willing to let Him do so."

We have to move first in order for the Spirit to move within us.

Or as a friend of mine is fond of saying "God doesn't steer a parked car."
