Years ago, the Holy Spirit revealed the scripture to me about co-laboring with Christ. In 1974 I heard, “You are not to work for Me, the work of the Kingdom was finished (completed) at the cross of Calvary. Now you walk with Me in the completed work, remembering that My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:30)

There are times when many things must be accomplished, but I know when I am in God’s perfect will because Joy and Peace accompany the work and I enjoy the tasks at hand for in all that I do, I do hand in hand with the Holy Spirit, who directs me. It is time for all God’s people to “rest” in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Spend time with Him as He reveals His plan. Garris Elkins, in his message to the church: “Come out of the clutter and hear the Message of God”– spoke a very strong and clear word – “During this season, stay away from over-scripted, over-studied, and over-choreographed personal lives and (numerous church gatherings that take away your personal time with God).

God is up to something new and our planning can be the very clutter that dulls our ability to hear the voice of God.” Of course, this doesn’t mean that we are to disobey the Word to gather together in the body of Christ. We must know when to gather. If it fills every spare moment of our lives, at some point we must create a place to listen to the Spirit.
