You arenâ€™t going to feel divine and righteous and saintly and pure, thatâ€™s a church mis- conception about the Christian walk. Forget your feelings about being close to the Lord, just believe He is with you and leave it at that. He said. â€œI will never leave thee nor forsake theeâ€™ (Hebrews 13: 5b) so once you have accepted Him and His Salvation through Graceâ€¦. Believe it, and rest assured He is with you. Why, because 'Jesus has never lost a sheep' ever, and you arenâ€™t going to be the first one. Your Salvation is and was forever because He did it and not you. It was and is by His 'Grace and not your works'. So relax and quite worrying. Donâ €™t doubt he is with you, but act as if he is whether you feel like it or not.
Donâ€™t expect the feelings of closeness all the time because you just wonâ€™t have them all the time. Nevertheless the fact remains that the Lord still loves you all the time no matter what your feelings are. He is constant and His love is eternal so forget your feelings, as they come and go in time and according to circumstance. Ha, for sometimes you are going to feel like â€˜hellâ€™ even though you are destined for â€˜heavenâ€™.
All you have to do is stay faithful everyday and do your best daily. You arenâ€™t going to move mountains everyday, so just help those along the way that the Lord brings by. Donâ€™t expect a halo over your head to be seen by others or for you to look up to, just believe in love and show love and walk humbly with your God as the prophet said.
Keep your conscience clear by trying your best, and obeying when the Lord tells you to do something, no matter how small. But donâ€™t expect instant rewards, just obey and rest assured that the Lord has seen what you have done. Donâ€™t expect to be on some spiritual high all the time, because â€˜it just ainâ€™t a goin to happenâ€™. You arenâ€™t going to be some overnight spiritual giant, so be content to be just a faithful nobody. For even if you are elevated by the Lord, you will still just be a faithful nobody that the Lord loves and cares for and will provide for â€¦ relax and be faithful and do your best.
You donâ€™t have to have great dreams and visions, and do mighty exploits all the time. For if only once in your life this happens, be thankful that you are useful to the Lord. Just keep going for the Lord and others daily and the rest will take care of itself. Be faithful in the little things, and the bigger things will take care of themselves.
Donâ€™t expect too much from yourself, as you are saved by Grace and still remain only by Grace, and for anything good to come from you or any of us, it has to be the LORD.
So RELAX and just love and keep walking humbly with your God
