When you are praying about something that is important to you and you need answers. And the Bible App scriptures of the day come in this succession, I think God is reminding me to trust, pray, wait, keep my hope in him, and give him praise while he works it all out.
 
troubled heart

John 14:1
– Let not your heart be troubled

Promise

2 Peter 3:9
– The Lord is not slack concerning his promise

dream big

Ephesians 3:20 – [pray] unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above

 
still

Psalms 46:10 – Be still and KNOW that I am God

thanks

Psalms 105:1
– Give thanks unto the Lord.

While it may be a coincidence that the scriptures have come in this order at this time, but God can speak to the heart in many ways. Thankful for peace in an unknowing time.

In this trying time that we live in there are many things that can take our peace. Our job, the economy, relationships, and uncertainty with what the future holds to name a few. Some times I find it a struggle to hold on to the precious peace that God has gave me when I placed my trust in him.

I was talking with a friend last night about stress and how many times people focus on the everyday things in life, creating unnecessary stressful situations. They talk about the monthly bills as if they are new and unmanageable. Christians can get caught up in this habit also. In conversation with one another, the bills are due or the car needs washing or the lawn needs mowed and what a big deal each one is.

We don’t need to allow daily responsibilities to take our peace. God is our strength and we can go to him for help for every day things. We can rest in him to take care of our every need.

When I got home I read Philippians 4:6-7, Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

I was so encouraged to find this simple recipe to keep the peace of God that passeth all understanding. It is to not worry and to bring our petitions before God with thankful prayer. He knows our needs and has promised many times over to supply each one. The bills will be paid, relationships will work out, the strength and time will come to get the yard work done. I have a secret to tell you, My God in all his riches has promised to supply each need (Philippians 4:19). In this we can rest and remain at peace.

It’s so good to wake up with good song on your heart. This morning it was I Can Trust Jesus. I am thankful for the reassurance we can have that Jesus is trustworthy.

I Can Trust Jesus

God picked up a sparrow that could no longer fly.
He brushed off it’s wonds and then watched it soar into the sky
If he’s mindful of creation on this I can depend
I am his child and i can place all my trust in him

I can trust Jesus, I can trust Jesus
He never once has failed to meet my needs.
He is my strong tower.
The strength in my weakest hour
I can trust Jesus, He takes care of me

I have prayed some prayers thought they never were heard
But i held to God’s hand and kept right on trusting in his word
My wants and God’s desires don’t always agree
But I lean on his will for he always knows whats best for me

I can trust Jesus, I can trust Jesus
He never once has failed to meet my needs.
He is my strong tower.
The strength in my weakest hour
I can trust Jesus, He takes care of me

I am so thankful for those that can write what is in my heart.

God has been teaching or reminding me some things lately…Let me share.

  1. When life get’s busy – stop and take time for the necessities.  Don’t neglect prayer, God’s word, time with his people and your job in his kingdom. Take a little time for yourself, to help cope.
  2. When the trials get long, God’s arms are longer and can hold you close.
  3. Take advantage of the help and encouragement that God’s people are. Don’t hide away when the trials are piling on. Be with the saints, share your burdens, share what God has done.
  4. That God has a perfect plan for ME, personally, not just any person. This plan is for MY good. And he will work it out in the best way.
  5. He has promised perfect peace, when I keep my eyes on him. Isaiah 26
  6. Prayer works for little things as well as big things.
  7. That I need to be more bold vocally about my life with God. I can talk to people I know about him, other saints, I can write about it. But I need to gain the boldness to step out and share the Gospel to those around me. Living the life and being a testimony is great, but when the opportunity comes, I want to and need to be ready to give an answer. (I am praying for more boldness in this way)
  8. That when teaching children about God, one has to make sure to get on their level, with words they understand. Keeping the story true, but with embellishments to keep their interest and attention. That they don’t have to remember the whole thing, but to get the basics.
  9. That our spiritual life is a mirror of our physical life. If we are lazy physically we will tend to lazy spiritual. We need to stay fit and up to par in every area.
  10. Don’t get weary in well doing, in serving God, in being a good testimony, in the work of God, in your job, in your housework, in taking care of your body, in all things you do, they are all for God. And he blesses those that endure to the end.
  11. That I have enough faith to touch God, but I want more.
  12. My trust placed in God is not in vain. He keeps his promises.
  13. It’s ok to cry, God collects the tears.
  14. God provides for all needs and even some wants.
  15. God is.

I am thankful for each lesson and reminder. Life get’s busy sometimes and we can get our eyes off God. Let’s keep our focus on him, lay aside every weight that would hinder us from making heaven our home.

Hebrews 12:1-2  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Isaiah 26:1-4 
In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.  Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

I am thankful for perfect peace in the midst of a storm.
