What Do You Need Today?

So, what do you need from God today? Peace maybe? Well dear one, You are blessed because He’s promised to give it! John 14:27 reminds us of His words, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” Beautiful soul, just now ~ step into it in your troubled mind and bask in it’s warm stability. It’s all over you, warming your innermost soul with radiance as you allow His peace to embrace the fears that overwhelm your anxious, beautiful mind.

Maybe its strength you need today for the heights of the impossible? Well you’re blessed because He, Himself, “is” strength and He’s strength for those impossible moments too. Those things that press in without a speck of hope in our own strength, are covered under His. His very presence brings authority and power into our fragility and into our fight for life. God reminds us in Paul’s words to us in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness” Yeah, for that weakest part of our being, He is strength and He is perfect strength. Know that He can use you in your weakness for His glory and He doesn’t need our perfection. Not even for a second. Yeah, we can fall and we can fail and He can still use it and us and He will just as He did for Paul. Wait on Him and rest in Him! Isaiah 40:31, packs a powerful promise for God’s people. It’s our Wheaties for the day and our power packed vitamin when we face the boot camps on our difficult journeys. Ahh, take it in and make it yours today …

” … they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Oh what promises are our from the God of creation, from the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. We dare not brush them off or take them lightly, but today, let’s jump in head-first and take God up on His divine offers of peace and strength and whatever else you need for right now.

It’s 1:25 a.m. I’m wide awake.

I stare at the clock, watching the minutes pass by. Minutes turn into hours, hours turn into my worst nightmare. How did I get here? I was supposed to be asleep by now.

My body craves rest. My soul longs for peace. My mind races as full speed. Where is it going? It’s taking me places I never intended to be.

All I wanted to do was sleep, but I’ve got to deal with all of these “late night thoughts.”

I never liked late night thoughts. I feel as though I’ve been robbed of the sweet rest Jesus promise’s those who come to Him. “Come to Meall you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Mathew 11:28).

Jesus, I just need Your promised rest. I just need You.

You are always faithful.

I will choose to trust…
