I heard this quote the other day and am loving it.
We are truly in a season of breaking off performance. Where the only thing that moves us is seeing what the Father is doing and only moving when we hear HIM speak. Unfortunately, that can be very uncomfortable. I find it interesting that when you stop the hampsters wheel, and press in to the Lord, people have trouble with it.
Many of you know that Paul and I are in a season of transition. We have never lacked to hear God's voice to move. Everytime He has wanted us to shift, He has spoken loudly and moved many obstacles to place us where He wanted us to be. But now, that things "appear" difficult, people have been expecting us to strive to make a way. Now, don't get me wrong, the Lord blesses those who do their part of the equation, and we have been pressing into Him and everything He brings our way. But our desire and our aim is to yoke ourselves to Him, which is a very light burden, and requires NO striving....but only pressing in to His rest.
The season of change and rest that we are in may appear as nothing, but we are very much in the hand of the Lord and have seen many supernatural things to attest to this. He is re-awakening us to our hearts and is calling us to His side once again. It may "appear" as nothing, but we are finding out what God truly has for us. And in due time, the kairos time, it will manifest itself in the here and now.
So I guess this post is more a declaration of my heart that we are not bending under the pressure of performance, but are willing to walk this out until we walk into the glory of the next season.
