There Is A Higher Way

“They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.” I was cup bearer to the king” (Nehemiah 1:10-11 NIV)

Performance is what matters to the world; and you will be rated according to its standards for success if you submit to its suppositions. I have a higher way. Nehemiah knew his success was tied to his reverence and submission.

True success will be a result of your submission to Me. Submission to Me and My Word creates success, all the while enveloped in an atmosphere or mercy and grace. Rest and time with Me seems contrary to the programming of the world, contradicting the belief, the more you do, the more you are. You are because I Am. Self-determination along with self-achievement is the way of the spirit of the world. It erases the tender mercies I put in your heart, producing a hard heart toward others. This is the hard way.

Put first things first and everything else will function and work out as it should. I am the river that flows through your days always reminding you to move in sync with Me (Acts 17:28). Come sit at My feet, rest in My presence, be a Mary, and I will redeem the time. Time spent with Me multiplies and expands, giving wisdom to accomplish more with less effort. Time with Me is a gift you can give to yourself. Come! I am already here.
