Jesus walked. He never ran. He never sprinted. He never hustled and He never bustled. On the plane a couple days ago He said to me, “You guys are too busy running around.”
He said, “Relax. Slow down. Take it easy. I am walking with you. The Father ran to you to show you how much He cares. I never ran.”
He went on, “I rode a donkey once, and my mom rode a donkey when she was pregnant with me, but mostly I just walked. I walked from town to town, place to place, person to person.”
He finished with, “You are not going to get more done just because you are busy running around.”
He showed me a picture of Himself ministering to the people in front of Him, and another of Him just walking purposefully down a dusty road …. relaxed and walking. Not running.
This word is for some of us, maybe not all, but definitely some of us. Receive it if it is for you. Slow down and walk with Jesus. Take time to spend with Him, talking to Him, walking side by side on the road.
When we are too busy doing things FOR the King we don’t take time to spend WITH the King. Do that today. Spend time with Jesus.
