Being motivated by anything other than Jesus will frustrate and burden us, which is why we need to receive from Him before we can work for Him. Love must be the motive for everything we do in response to God’s grace. Choosing to comply with God because of our faith in His love influences the entire direction of our lives. Placing our faith in Him does not take away the problems we encounter in life, but does allow Him to deliver us and give us victory over them. No matter what happens in life, we can trust God to watch over us and take care of us. Depending on Him to work through us allows Him to use us as His vessels to do great things, with marvelous results.
