Shalom and PEACE to you today! A generous gifting from our Lord to us. Yeah, Jesus, Our Prince of Peace came to share it with us. His sweet peace is not as the world gives but it’s a sense of well being within ourselves. It comes from our willingness to change and repent and do a turn about of direction. To walk with Him in His salvation and in His ways of abundance. It comes from our trust in our Prince of Peace, the sweet Savior of the broken and hurting and those beaten and scarred and torn up by sin’s choices.
“Shalom” may His favor rest on you today as you seek Him and find healing in Him for such a time as this.
The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.’” –
Numbers 6:23-26 #adventofpeace#Shalom
So here we sit, in our human frailness, immersed in imperfections, weaknesses and physical ailments. Hey, you’re convinced you were hiding under the table when the talents were handed out? As a matter of fact you’re just sure that’s what happened. You’ve made more than your fair share of mistakes and the failures? Well, they come with built in weights to drag you down and put you on hold, without any hope of rising!
Sometimes we can be so wrapped up in ourselves and our situations that we can’t see past the pity parties and the barriers of “Why Me” into our potential. You ~ beautiful soul, can soar if you desire! Default to God.com.now no computer needed ~ and see how much power you have at your disposal? Social media either requires a phone or a computer but not the believer! Not to connect to our sovereign God Most High. He’s just there ~ right there in your presence and He’s given the promise to His own that if we wait on Him, we’ll receive an inner strength and an ability to soar like the eagles in and through our situations and over our limited mentality. What an awesome promise and what a mind boggling thought to pull us out of the despairing pit of “Why me” and take us into the next moment ~ the next day, the week and the month ahead.
Down and out because of weaknesses and failure? ~ No way, not you! “Note to self” ~ God is with you and on your side! He has your back and your problem! Your weaknesses may discourage you but they are His delight. He wants you empty ~ empty of ‘Self’ and that’s where He works to bring you into the fullness of His purpose in your life and make it all count for now and for eternity. Trust Him for that. All that human frailty is your ticket to an awesome power that only God gives to His own. So, beautiful soul, enough of “Why Me?” Get before the Lord and look up into the heavens to see His majesty and authority in your world. It’s all yours when you delight in Him and talk with Him and seek His divine counsel and walk in His divine way. So for now ~ just wait on Him and let Him do the work in you!
But 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.”
