How Long Will You Ignore His Proposal?

How Long Will You Ignore His Proposal?

Victor: Sister Sade, I’ve been planning to tell you something o.

Sade: What may that be? I’m listening o… spill it!

Victor: Erhmmm… it’s about… erhmmm… you know that since last two years… erhmmm…

Sade: What’s wrong with you today?

Victor: Okay. Let me just spill it. Will you marry me?

Sade: (Stunned) Erhmmmm… Are you serious? Well, let me think about it.

And that’s how Sade has been thinking about it for the last six months!


Are you like Sade?

Won’t you give the brother a response?

But there’s yet another Brother whose proposal you may not have responded to.
And I am here to remind you!

Yeshua: My love, I see you’ve been carrying a load that’s weighing you down. You are tired! Burned out! Worn out on searching for a spouse!

You: Yes o. I am very very very tired. It seems this load of getting-the-right-spouse is too heavy for me to bear. The load of getting a job too. The load of living above the trials and temptations of life too. In fact, there are plenty loads!

Yeshua: Yes, these loads are certainly too heavy for you to bear. And that’s why I’m proposing to you:
Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it.

You: Say what?

Yeshua: Come to me, and learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.

You: (Silence)

That’s the proposal of Christ Jesus to you.
What will your response be?
You may have been ignoring His proposal for long, but today is the day to say ‘YES!’

The proposal is a call to take REST IN HIM… it’s a call to move away from the busyness and foolishness of self-effort, and take rest in the sweet fellowship with Yeshua.

His call to rest is simple:

Keep company with Me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly!

Have you neglected company with the Lord, in pursuit of the things of life?

The Lord is calling out to you this day to return to the fountain of life.
As you drink from that fountain daily, your soul is refreshed, you take rest in Him, and your life will begin to line up with His plan.

Be wise. Respond to His proposal now.


I return to keeping company with the Lord.


  1. Lord, keep me in Your Bedchamber.
  2. Lord, I acknowledge my human frailty; therefore I come to You. I take rest in You. Let Your strength begin to seep into my being, to overshadow my human frailty.

The busyness of self-effort can only give you human-result. Rest in God, and you will receive God-result.

Sing this hymn till it drowns you:

As the deer panteth for the water
So my soul longeth after Thee
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship Thee

You alone are my strength, my shield
To You alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my heart’s desire
And I long to worship Thee

Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG, TPT, ERV, NKJV), Psalm 46:10, Psalm 91
