REST IN THE LORD
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him. Psalm 37:7
Two of the hardest things for man to do, is to rest in the Lord and to wait on Him! To rest in this world of electronic, hand held everything is impossible with IPhones, IPads computers and games, not to mention TV and social media filling our minds with nothing worth getting upset over!
We are to love the Lord with all of our hearts and our minds, but our minds are continually filled with the lust and pride of the world, leaving us exhausted and unable to rest! To overcome this madness, one must shut out the world and start off with a quiet time with the Lord, spending your first waking hours communing with your heavenly Father.
Through prayer, intercession, and study of His word each morning, when your mind is free from the hustle and bustle of the day, will create a peace and stillness in your spirit that will enable you to rest in Him! There is nothing the devil likes better than attacking your minds with fear, worry, doubt and unbelief. That's why the word says to take every thought captive and inventory your thought life, sending everything back that is contrary to God's word!
Be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! Psalm 46:10
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
