COME TO ME FOR REST AND REFRESHMENT. THE JOURNEY HAS BEEN TOO MUCH FOR YOU, AND YOU ARE BONE-WEARY. DO NOT BE ASHAMED OF YOUR EXHAUSTION. INSTEAD, SEE IT AS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE.
REMEMBER THAT I CAN FIT EVERYTHING INTO A PATTERN FOR GOOD, INCLUDING THE THINGS YOU WISH WERE DIFFERENT. START WITH WHERE YOU ARE AT THIS POINT IN TIME AND SPACE, ACCEPTING THAT THIS IS WHERE I INTEND YOU TO BE. YOU WILL GET THROUGH TODAY ONE STEP, ONE MOMENT AT A TIME. YOUR MAIN RESPONSIBILITY IS TO REMAIN ATTENTIVE TO ME, LETTING ME GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE MANY CHOICES ALONG YOUR PATHWAY.
THIS SOUNDS LIKE AN EASY ASSIGNMENT, BUT IT IS NOT. YOUR DESIRE TO LIVE IN MY PRESENCE GOES AGAINST THE GRAIN OF "THE WORLD, THE FLESH, AND THE DEVIL." MUCH OF YOUR WEARINESS RESULTS FROM YOUR CONSTANT BATTLE AGAINST THESE OPPONENTS. HOWEVER, YOU ARE ON THE PATH OF MY CHOOSING, SO DO NOT GIVE UP! HOPE IN ME, FOR YOU WILL AGAIN PRISE ME FOR THE HELP OF MY PRESENCE.
AND WE KNOW THAT IN ALL THINGS GOD WORKS FOR THE GOOD OF THOSE WHO LOVE HIM, WHO HAVE BEEN CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE. ROMANS 8:28
WHY ARE YOU DOWNCAST, O MY SOUL? WHY SO DISTURBED WITHIN ME? PUT YOUR HOPE IN GOD, FOR I WILL YET PRAISE HIM, MY SAVIOR AND MY GOD. PSALM 42:11
What perfect timing for this devotion to come to me. I am going through a few trials and needed to hear from God and here is comes to me in this devotion. Thank you Jesus for never leaving me or forsaking me and helping me though this time. Amen
Sharing this with my friends. May God richly bless everyone.
