16 Sep Lord, Help Me to Rest
It takes patience to let God work it out…to battle the thing for you and through you, in His time and in is way. His affectionate and watchful care over you will bring you through as “more than a conqueror” (Romans 8:37). And the spoils of the battle will be a very great gain of peace, joy, rest, healing (in ways you’d never imagine), strength (beyond your human ability), and a bone-deep knowledge of the Lover of your soul (in ways you’d never have known otherwise).
Rest 👏 in 👏 Him! 👏
It also takes courage, my friend; a holy courage to let go of and lose the things that are of no great loss in this life. My heart may be broken, my body may be burned, bruised, cut, or even killed…but nothing can separate ME- my eternal life, soul, and spirit from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus. God’s command is to “be strong and courageous” (Joshua 1:9)- for the Lord your God goes before you and has already fought this battle…and won! Power up your bravery because He’s got you covered. God is good, and He is very good at being God!
Take 👏 courage 👏 in 👏 Christ! 👏
I love y’all!
