…a Christian is not a man who never goes wrong, but a man who is enabled to repent and pick himself up and begin over again after each stumble — because the Christ-life is inside him, repairing him all the time, enabling him to repeat (in some degree) the kind of voluntary death which Christ himself carried out.
I woke up this morning not knowing my day or the outcome of it.
Just within hours things changed.
Now, I can’t control the outcome. I can only control the decisions I decide to make.
But that is so human of me.
I know a God who is sovereign!
I came upon Scripture that I’ve been meditating all day.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:4-9 NIV)
My encouragement for everyone is to always rejoice. No matter to outcome or situation because the Lord is near! He is so close to understand your situation that His peace will overcome your understanding of the situation. Not only that, but it will guard your heart and mind.
To be honest, I could be terrified of tomorrow or the future. But why allow the stress or anxiety harbor in my mind and heart.
I need to learn to LET GO AND LET GOD!
Thank you, Lord for this daily spiritual bread.
