THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
AT SOME POINT, YOU HAVE TO STOP AND SAY, “GOD, I REST IN YOU”
In our world today, most people are used to having constant activity: computers, cell phones, television, email, video games. There’s nothing wrong with any of that, but the Bible tells us that we need to stop and BE STILL so we can FOCUS on knowing God. This is especially true during the difficult times. When you are facing a challenge, it’s easy to want to run to a friend or talk about it with a co-worker. But at some point, you have to STOP and say, “God, I rest in You. I know You have me in the palm of Your hand.”
Remember, our battles are SPIRITUAL battles. The people in your life aren’t the source of your problems, the forces of darkness ARE. When you choose to be still and know that the Greater One lives on the inside of you, you are putting yourself in a position of STRENGTH. So today, take time to be still before Him. Let His PEACE cover you. Let Him REFRESH you by His Spirit.
Remember, the battles you face belong to the Lord. Be STILL before Him so you can see His hand of VICTORY in every area of your life!
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28, NIV
