Rest

God’s presence can give you peace in any situation, including a difficult workplace or a home that is in constant upheaval. It can enable you to show love in the face of abuse and patience in the midst of stress; to bring positive change without a lot of words, and to end up feeling good about the way you handle things. So today, spend some time in God’s presence and allow Him to give you the rest you need. Love you all.
The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14

What is true for Moses is true for you and me. If we’ll humble ourselves before God, He will be faithful to teach us His ways and guide us on the right path. As we go His way there is this wonderful promise of His presence. When we live in His presence, this is the place of true rest. His Word is true when He says: “I will give you rest.” We all can experience this rest today as we hear His voice and allow Him to speak reassuring words to our hearts.

I find in this conversation between God and Moses the secret to true rest for all of us. We need to set our heart to always be in a listening and learning mode so that our Heavenly Father can teach us His ways and guide us in making wise choices. I find this morning that as I let the Lord speak to me, He calms my spirit and my heart and reassures me that He is in control and He will be faithful to accomplish His purposes in me and through me.

Life is so busy, and schedules can be so full, that there seems to be little time for rest. It is important to take Sabbath rests to give our bodies and minds a break. It is also important to acknowledge that there’s a rest we can experience each day when we know we’ve obeyed and pleased our Lord.

The promise of His Presence is there for me, as it is for you. By God’s grace, we no longer have to ask for it as Moses did. But perhaps we have taken all that for granted and totally missed the significance, Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Will we run into His Presence? Will we enter His rest?

Thank you, Father that in your presence there is fullness of joy and true rest. I set my heart to please you this day as I follow you. Lord Jesus, come and fill us with your love and your Spirit, so that we can recognize your voice and direction for our lives. Thank you for giving us rest in our soul and spirit as we walk in your ways. In Jesus name Amen!

Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
