TRY SAYING, "I TRUST YOU, JESUS" IN RESPONSE TO WHATEVER HAPPENS TO YOU. IF THERE IS TIME, THINK ABOUT WHO I AM IN ALL MY POWER AND GLORY; PONDER ALSO THE DEPTH AND BREADTH OF MY LOVE FOR YOU.
THIS SIMPLE PRACTICE WILL HELP YOU SEE ME IN EVERY SITUATION, ACKNOWLEDGING MY SOVEREIGN CONTROL OVER THE UNIVERSE. WHEN YOU VIEW EVENTS FROM THIS PERSPECTIVE--THROUGH THE LIGHT OF MY UNIVERSAL PERSPECTIVE--THROUGH THE LIGHT OF MY PRESENCE--FEAR LOSES ITS GRIP ON YOU. ADVERSE CIRCUMSTANCES BECOME GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES WHEN YOU AFFIRM YOUR TRUST IN ME NO MATTER WHAT. YOU RECEIVE BLESSINGS GRATEFULLY, REALIZING THEY FLOW DIRECTLY FROM MY HAND OF GRACE. YOUR CONTINUAL ASSERTION OF TRUSTING ME WILL STRENGTHEN OUR RELATIONSHIP AND KEEP YOU CLOSE TO ME.
I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Psalm 63:2
See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power, and His arm rules for him. See, His reward is with Him and His recompense accompanies him. He tends His flock like a shepherds; He gathers the labs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young. Isaiah 40: 10-11
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you re there; If i make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. Psalm 139:7-10
How fitting this is that we cannot hide from God, and yet if we try, He still extends His hand to guide us back and hold us. What a Blessed God we serve. I am glad that I am a child of God and will not fear the world because I know that He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world.
God bless all my friends. May God richly bless you.
