With God all things are possible,so why do we worry.I think it’s because we have not reached that place of “Rest” in the Lord.Today with so much pressure,pain & suffering we wonder how can we rest. But God’s word is the truth so we must first believe then trust God,for after all God knows everything and see’s everything. There is a place in Christ where we can be calm in the storms,Jesus is our example and he gives us a clear picture,really more than one lol,just as Mark 4:35~38 shows us that Jesus did not get upset in the storm. Jesus trusted God and we must also trust God to enter that place of marvelous rest.I tell ya, now my trials & tribulations don’t beat me up as bad as they use to,”whew” for awhile I thought I would surely faint.But God has brought growth in my life and more peace ,and that’s what our trials & tribulations do bring growth and peace. That’s where the all things work together for our good comes in. God does watch over his word and he will do above and beyond what he has promised! I thank God for his great faithfulness! In order to get into God’s rest we must believe that he is God and keep our eyes on Jesus,(Hebrews 12:2,3 )Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus,on whom our faith depends from beginning to end.He did not give up because of the cross! On the contrary,because of the joy that was waiting for him,he thought nothing of the disgrace of dying on the cross,and is now seated on the right hand of God’s throne.Think of what he went through,how he put up with so much hatred from sinful men! So do not let yourselves become discouraged and give up.
No on the contrary we should think about Jesus and encourage ourselves,knowing that we win! God is faithful and his love for us never changes!
Love in Christ Pat
Heavenly Father help us to hear your voice and be obedient,help us Father to stay in your word to learn about who you are and your love for us,so that as we know you better we will recognize your voice.Thank you Father for all you’ve done for us through Jesus Christ your Son and our great & all mighty Saviour.Amen
Thank you Pat for this reminder. In our selves, we wander all over the place but it is Jesus that keeps us. Oh, how life would be so much easier if we did not take our eyes off Him. Trials and tribulations are always part of our earthly life but how much easier to bear if we simply kept our eyes on Him.
