When trials come up in people’s lives, fear often comes in. The countenance begins to look like something that just came out of the pit. Fear comes in because love is not abounding through the Spirit of the living God (Romans 5:5). If I understand 1 Corinthians 13:7 correctly, then I know that love bears all things, and perfect love casts out fear (1 John 4:18). That’s the way of the Spirit of the living God.
We need to understand the work of God. Unless a person lives by the Spirit of the living God, then he can’t wait for vacation to come. There is nothing wrong with vacations; however, we don’t need a vacation because we’re worn out or because we have become insufficient for the job.
Jesus said, “Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place and rest a while.” It is good to “come away” to be refreshed. In fact, we should mentally rest in Him all the time.
Recognize the value of rejecting every projection in a series of thoughts and feelings that come from the one who wants to attack and infect our minds. Don’t accept anything that doesn’t agree with the Great Provider of your soul. Rest in the mind of Christ.
