Good Morning and Happy FriYAY!!! It's time to get up, Up, UP....... "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you." (Isaiah 60:1) Need I say more???
So, what are your plans for today? Note the word YOUR........ If what you are planning for today, is only what you can do in your own strength, what a pity! Do you KNOW that there is a better way? GOD'S WAY! GOD'S PLAN! Let's look at Ephesians 3:20, "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us."
I want THAT, don't you? IMMEASURABLY MORE!!! If I only get what I want, I will be missing out the the BLESSINGS OF GOD! You see, WE can only go SO FAR. But God? Well, He wants to do the IMPOSSIBLE in us, and for us! WE are limited, but GOD IS LIMITLESS!
What the world offers, is a temporary fix. Oh, we may be happy for a while, but we always come back for MORE! Apart from God, we cannot be satisfied. Apart from God, we can do nothing. (John 15:5) And, we remain restless, until we REST IN GOD! The safest place for me, is to say, "If God's not IN it, I DON'T WANT IT!!!"
I know how things work out if I try to do them without God! It's NOT pretty! There is going to come a time when all you have strength to do is, give it all to God! "Yet not my will, but yours be done." (Luke 22:42) Trying do things on our own, is exhausting! It's a burden we are not meant to carry!
Want some comfort? "Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10) Trade your chaos, for STILLNESS. I love peace and quiet! It's highly underrated. When stress comes, BE STILL. When things are out of control, BE STILL. When you think the sky is falling, BE STILL. When you feel lost and confused, BE STILL. When you are full of fear, BE STILL. When you are being pulled in a hundred different directions, BE STILL.
"You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance." (Psalm 32:7) "He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge." (Psalm 91:4) "The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still." (Exodus 14:14) All I can say, is RUN TO JESUS! Spend time in HIS PRESENCE! Breathe a DEEPER FAITH! He is your STRENGTH! Your FORTRESS! Try HIS WAY today, dear Friends........ Place your heart in His Hands. Don't listen to satan's lies, but live in GOD'S TRUTH!!!
