sleeping in peace...

May 19, 2014
Psalm 3:5 I lay down and slept; I woke again for the Lord sustained me
Psalm 4:8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety

You, and you alone, dear God, give to me what I need. You look upon me and see my every situation and You have provided for me instruction and wisdom within your word that will help me. I am able to lie down and sleep at night because I know that Your Will is sovereign, and nothing can or will touch me that you have not already preordained. I thank You for that.

Psalm 2:12 …blessed are all who take refuge in him

Sometimes we need to run to Jesus. We need to hide within His garment. Sometimes we need the comfort found only within our Lord. This is how we are called to be all the time of course, but sometimes are more demanding than others. How blessed we are that we can take refuge in Him? We can run to Him. He will lift us up on His wings and fly us. He will carry us through the valleys that hurt us so deeply. We are a blessed people that can call Jesus, “Lord.”

the ability to react...

May 15, 2014
Psalm 1:2 …and on his law he meditates day and night

I am always convicted when I read verses like this. They are found all in the bible. God put them there because they are important. It is impossible to be who God desires us to be without knowing what His word says. We can’t be a light to this world unless we know how we are to react to situations in a way that is godly and not fleshly. We don’t need any help to know how to react in a ways that suit our “self’s”; however, we need great help to know how to react in a way that brings honor and glory to the name of the Lord.
