So there might be a whole lot of hurt goin’ down with you today and a whole lot of nonsense that just doesn’t go away. Instead of leaving you alone, it nips at your heels and tugs at your mind, pulling you into its vice of worry and despair. So when hope has up and gone and there’s no place to turn, turn to God’s corner; to the sovereign One, who knows it all and the sovereign One who has it all, and the sovereign One who cares deeply about you and lavishes His gentle grace upon you and cradles you in the depths of His love and unmerited mercy. A mercy so amazing it can make us blush at the thought of how much He gives for how little we deserve.
Oh yeah, He’s got your hurt and your heart and he holds you firmly in His grip and under His wings of shelter. Find yourself there today, right there in His protection! You see, it’s here where nothing will touch you, where no one can taunt you and no one can harm you or accuse you! It’s here where you can find His peace ~ that same calm that stilled the storm and calmed the waves on the sea of Galilee. Rest now and be blessed in His peace! Rest in His peace and say in confidence, with the Psalmist in Psalm 4:8,
“I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.”
“The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
