"God doesn’t hate the sinner, He hates the sin."

Jesus said, YOU ARE THE BRANCHES. He did not say, try to be the branches. Beloved, you are connected to Christ, and you don’t have to struggle anymore, or do many things to be with Him, because you’re already there. All you have to do is to remain in Him, and stay PUT.
Don’t fidget. Don’t panic. Don’t take things on your hands. JUST BE STILL. Jesus is your vine, and you will surely bear abundant fruit. Jesus is your vine, and you are His responsibility, so He’ll never let you suffer. Jesus is your vine, and He loves you, He’ll never leave you alone. Just stay put and have faith in Him, beloved.
You are who you are because of Christ. You will be like Christ, because you draw nourishment from Him. You are already in a position of love and blessing. Don’t struggle anymore. God is holding you close, and you need not worry about anything anymore.

The Lord is our Burden-Bearer, and on Him we must lay every care.

God says, in effect, ‘Be careful of nothing, but make your requests known to Me, and I will attend to them all.’

The Christian’s response to doubt (as it should be to everything), must be love. Your brother may be struggling with sin, you must support him by radiating the love of Christ. Your sister is plagued with guilt, speak Christ’s love and it will soothe the storm that rages within her.

In all things; show love.

In the book of James, the Bible tells us that we should wait for God’s promises like a farmer waits for his harvest. Now, I’ve never seen a farmer plant a crop and then worry night and day about whether or not it’s going to come up. He doesn’t lose sleep thinking, “Oh, I hope that my corn is going to take root. Please, God, let my corn bring a harvest.” No, he waits with confidence, knowing that the harvest will come. He does his part, and he knows that seed will produce a good crop.
In the same way, we should wait confidently for the promises of God. We have to stand firm on His Word. It’s not enough to just hope that your situation is going to turn around. Instead of the attitude, “I hope I get well,” have the attitude of confidence and say, “Thank You, Lord, that I am getting well.” Start waiting like the farmer. Wait with a knowing. Wait with confidence. Be sure that as you put God’s Word into practice, just like the farmer, you will see that harvest of blessing in your own life in return.
