A Lamp unto my feet… – May we be intentional this week about spending time in God’s presence and in His Word. May we ask God to fill our hearts and thoughts with His life-giving, hope-filled words; so that we will TRUST the work of the Holy Spirit with fully devoted servant hearts; and then go out and spread the good news of HOPE and PEACE. (Psalm 119:105)
The faithful King of our hearts! - Let us examine our lives today – to see whether God is enthroned as King of our hearts. We need to recognise that relying on His strength to carry us through life is what delivers us from the anxiety and stress of trying to come up with our own plans! Do we strengthen our faith by reminding ourselves and others of the goodness and faithfulness of God? Do we wholeheartedly trust God with every detail of our lives? Our first response should be to praise and rejoice in our Lord, regardless of our circumstances! (Matthew 6:31-33)
Our God of endless hope! - Jesus has come so that we can have life and have it in abundance. At some point, we all face seemingly impossible or daunting situations. During those times, it may appear that there is no way out, or no way forward… BUT with God there is always HOPE! He can breathe LIFE and bring RESTORATION! He is FAITHFUL to His promises – and we can truly TRUST in our God of endless HOPE! (Ephesians 1:17-19)
Take heart! - This season, I believe for all of us, has been one of being intentional about growing in Christ. Maybe we have found time to reconnect with God more often, or possibly we are more aware of His presence in our lives, or we are spending more time in His Word... No matter how our faith has been stirred, let us continually strive to put aside our old ways and our own will, so that we can grow deeper in trusting God, and fixing our eyes on the eternal hope and glory that lie before us! (2 Corinthians 4:7-9 and 16-18)
Surrendering all! - May we understand the importance of not becoming spiritually starved in our relationship with our Lord during this time. May God use this season to help us learn to be flexible; and to trust Him to work out our weeks, days, hours and even our minutes. May we never cease to look to the Holy Spirit for answers and good discernment. Let’s return to God’s Word as our only foundation, as we lay ourselves down and surrender all to Him. (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
