The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm. Exodus 13:14 NLT
It's hard to deal with difficult days when fear robs our calm. It makes us forget where PEACE is found and leads us far away from finding STRENGTH.
Jesus said, " Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls." Matthew 11:28-29 NLT
When we need to rest in His presence, Jesus pulls us from the worry of doubt. He silences distractions and helps us focus on the good. He lifts us where we see what needs to be noticed and helps us learn to cope with HOPE.
We were never promised days without frustration, trouble or worry of our own. But Jesus loves us through EACH moment. He covers the sores of our souls and provides refuge in the comfort of His care. He draws us closer to the promise of His everlasting love.
We must take time to be still and allow Christ to help us. He will humble our hearts so we will remain faithful. God will always take care of us. In difficult days of uncertainty He WILL renew our lives, arm us with everything we need to fight the battles and remove fear from our hearts. Surely, He WILL do great things as we continue to TRUST in His mighty power to save.
Dear God, Thank you for Jesus! Open our hearts to the goodness of His love, so we will remember where to find calm. In the messiness of life, lead us to the Savior so we will learn to cope with HOPE and remember to TRUST in You. Thank you for STRENGTH to keep on going. Help us feel PEACE in Your presence while we're held in the arms of Your holiness. Thank you for the power of Your love. It is what we need to handle each and every day. Thank you for showing us how it feels to be grateful. You are worthy of ALL of our praise! Amen
