Your Miracle

So you, and I and we and us, we can’t throw in the towel and give up even though we might feel there’s nothing more to hold on to or hope for.

Thing is, it’s a new day and perhaps it will hold the miracle we’ve been anticipating. We serve a creator God who doesn’t work on our timeline. He works on His! We live in a fallen world, a world where sin is thick and wild, and we see the effects of it in on our world at this season of time. Fear and worry are the enemy’s tactics to weaken and defeat us and right now, both are so prevalent and highly contagious among us. I’m so thankful God is on our side and doing battle for us against this demonic pressure that sneaks in to trip us up.

We need to pray for deliverance and at the same time, as believers in a Sovereign God, remember we have an eternal hope to hold on to. No, we don’t know the outcome, yet still, we hang on to our solid trust in our Saviour, and our deepening faith in our faithful God, that all is well with our soul, never giving in or giving up!

Today, we face a global battle and a spiritual warfare of overwhelming proportions of fear and worry on all fronts, but Paul reminds us in Ephesians 6:10-12,

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

So friends, let’s keep on keeping on staying strong in our faith! Trust the Lord and fight this battle with the efficient and powerful “spiritual weapon” of Peace and a sound stable mind.

So Safe

Sheltered in the arms of God; it’s a safe place to be. So when all rages wildly about you and your mind is doing whirling twirls in no kind of organized fashion, the place to be is quiet before the Lord and held tightly in His safekeeping ’til the quiet comes.

A Thankful Heart Is A Peaceful Heart

 

Hey, don’t we all just need a little peace today to quiet our minds and souls before a Saviour who came so humbly, to give it so generously?

The word Peace, is a Jewish greeting and in Hebrew ~ “shalom” captures the spirit of Jesus’ work on this old earth to restore peace and quiet the hearts of sinful people who tend to go their own way and mess things up quite readily. Yeah, we tend to want to do it our way and so we do and so we find ourselves in many places of unrest, experiencing anything but His blessed peace that transcends beyond our understanding and beyond our circumstances.

God’s work of peace to restore humanity’s relationship to God was fulfilled in the birth of the Messiah, the cross and the glorious resurrection of our Saviour! Oh yeah, we have so much to be thankful for, yet we forget to be thankful and our desire for more undermines our gratefulness as we enter into the pit of arrogance and pride rather than peace. Our desire for our rights, our power, our authority, and our desire for more this and more that, rob us of God’s generous and luxurious gift of peace!

It is a luxury but ‘Self’ is our own worst enemy, our worst deceiver, our worst liar and our worst false god. Succumbing to ‘self’ while aspiring for the top, ironically sets us on a downward spiral of unrest, uneasy and undone!

Feeling uneasy, and fearful, today in this crazy world? In your crazy world? Get alone with the Saviour who came to lavish you with peace and usher it into the hearts and lives of humanity. It’s there for you, close the self door and step into it! Claim it, and walk on in the beauty and pure bliss of it.

Philippians 4: 6, 7, 8
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think on these things.…”

2 Timothy 1:7
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

John 14:27
“I am leaving you with a gift–peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a peace that the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid…”

A Little Peace Please

 

Ahh, so we move into this second week of our Advent season, continue on in our preparation with Hope in our soul as we light the candle of ‘peace’ in our anticipated waiting. With so much going on in this world of ours, it’s hard to fathom any kind of peace anywhere, isn’t it? For sure not in this wide world is there any kind of peace and certainly not in ours!

Today, there’s most likely a whole bunch of us just aching for some kind of peace of mind that everything is ok and will be ok. Luke 2:14 tells us of a host of heavenly angels singing their song to shepherds, to announce His birth and share a glorious message of calm assurance! It was a powerful yet tender message of a Savior’s birth and about His sweet peace resting on His people in this unsettled earth of ours.

Glory to God in the Highest, because on that holy night a Savior came to gift us not only with Hope but with a divine PEACE and bring it close to our hearts, our minds, and into the very depths of our needy souls and selves. Peace, yeah, It’s really there all around us all wrapped up in our Trust in the One Savior of the world. We need to step into it and just believe! It’s in our complete trust that our peace takes root. Pure, simple TRUST in Him shuts out the fear of the unknown! It cancels out the worry of what’s next and quiets the noise of chaos, because, as His child, we can know He holds us and our stuff, close to Himself as He whispers sweet peace to our soul. ❤
