My desire is to grapple together here over how well off we are with God through Christ,
and to live from His opinion of us.

Give You Rest
If you’re feeling a little worn out, a bit worked over today, please do not try to work up something for Jesus. While working yourself over or up for Jesus is never a good idea, we seem particularly prone to thinking about all of the work we should be doing upon ourselves when we are least capable. I do not like feeling, “least capable,” and often entertain lunatic thoughts that I’d better get myself together. But the two don’t go together. Right? Instead, the best course I have ever found is to offer myself to Jesus—Mr. Capable—who lives in me. I don’t make it my goal to do that very well either. I don’t gin-up some manners when talking to Jesus in me, because not only does He know all about my “worked-over” condition, He actually enjoys meeting with me in every condition and situation I encounter. That’s the plan. He proves Himself to me over and over again, earning my love and trust over and over again. And what’s more valuable than that?
