THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
TAKE ADVANTATGE OF THIS “STAY AT HOME” TIME, REST IN THE LORD KNOWING HE’S IN CONTROL
In our world today, most people have become accustomed to having constant activity going on—computers, cell phones, television, email, video games. And there’s nothing wrong with those activities, but the Bible tells us that we have to stop and BE STILL so we can focus on knowing God. This is especially true during today’s difficult times. When you are facing a challenge, normally you want to run to a friend or talk about it with a neighbor. But this time is DIFFERENT, for the most part we’ve been forced to “stay at home”.
Take advantage of this time at home. Stop and say, “God, I REST in You. I know You have me in the palms of Your hands.” Remember, our true battles are SPIRITUAL battles. The people in your life aren’t your enemy, 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 saying to the whole world, “I trust GOD. HE is my Defender.” When you choose to BELIEVE in Him you will enter into His REST. REMEMBER THIS. The battle belongs to the Lord. As you are STILL before Him, you will see His hand of VICTORY and blessing in EVERY area of your life!
“Be still, and know that I am God…”
Psalm 46:10, NIV
