Peace, An Inner Treasure

My prayer in all situations is “Lord, help me to follow well.” This has been especially so since we began the journey of selling our home a couple of months ago. I don’t want my trust to waver but sometimes it does.

Perhaps this is why yesterday’s reading from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young felt like a divine thump upon my spirit—and maybe I’m not alone as a new week unfolds before us all today. I pray you will be blessed.

“Take time to be still in my Presence. The more hassled you feel, the more you need this sacred space of communion with Me. Breathe slowly and deeply. Relax in My holy Presence while My Face shines upon you. This is how you receive My Peace, which I always proffer to you. 

Imagine the pain I feel when My children tie themselves up in anxious thoughts, ignoring My gift of Peace. I died a criminal’s death to secure this blessing for you. Receive it gratefully; hide it in your heart. My peace is an inner treasure, growing within you as you trust in Me. Therefore, circumstances cannot touch it. Be still, enjoying Peace in My Presence.”

Psalm 46:10; Numbers 6:25-26

Is there some specific way I can pray for you today? Feel free to leave it here, FB message or email. I count it a privilege. 

Poetic Pauses: Psalm 103

As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
for he knows how we are formed,
    he remembers that we are dust.
The life of mortals is like grass,
    they flourish like a flower of the field;
the wind blows over it and it is gone,
    and its place remembers it no more.
But from everlasting to everlasting
    the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
    and his righteousness with their children’s children—
with those who keep his covenant
    and remember to obey his precepts.
The Lord has established his throne in heaven,
    and his kingdom rules over all.
Psalm 103:13-19

DAY 17: GOD

Wondrous delight is found in the presence of God. With a blank sheet of paper and pen in hand, along with a Bible nearby, begin making a list of the characteristics of God. Write down various names for God. Record attributes of God. List promises of God. Then spend some time thanking God simply for who He is and offering words of adoration to Him. The wonder of God’s presence awaits you.
