B.U.S.Y vs Productive


“When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, Then You knew my path. In the way in which I walk They have secretly set a snare for me.”
Psalms 142:3
The Lord has designed a path for each of us and set along that path wonderful works for us to accomplish in His name and through His strength. When we are overwhelmed it is an indicator their is a snare in place...
B.U.S.Y
Best described as:
Being Under Satan's Yoke!
Satan is the master of deception and will set a snare wherever possible. Sometime when he can't discourage us in our spiritual walk he will attempt to keep us so busy with daunting tasks that we become tired, distracted, overwhelmed, exhausted, frustrated, or short on time. This way he gains access and comes in to wreak havoc, ultimately discourages us and this snare can often times cause us to want to quit!
VS.
Being Productive...
Productive defined is to produce abundant good or to be fruitful and rich. This is the life Jesus is calling us to. Have you ever noticed how effortless it is to accomplish an incredibly insane workload or schedule when the Holy Spirit empowers you to do it?...A lot of times it could even be called "the impossible" but it becomes possible through Him alone!
So how do we know these works are of Him? Because only then will we be empowered by His strength to accomplish them...
3 Indicators:
1) Check out heart motives...is it for His glory or ours?
2) He confirms it in His Word
3) He gives us peace! "God is not the author of confusion but of peace"-1 Corinthians 14:33
Let us live abundantly rich and fruitful lives!
