Relax in the Lord!

 

      RELAX IN THE LORD!

 

 

 

 

Yesterday, a friend of mine gave me a word found in Daniel 12:13 (The Message Bible) that the Lord had given her after praying about a certain matter in her life.

“And you? Go about your business without fretting or worrying, Relax. When it’s all over, you will be on your feet to receive your reward.”

The Lord told her to Relax! My friend is taking God at His Word. Sometimes it takes more faith to just go on about our business, quit fretting, and let God work it out.

Do you have that kind of faith? Very often, we think great faith is doing something spectacular, marvelous, heart-stopping. We admire the pushers & movers but looking at God’s word in Daniel 12, great faith many times requires us just to take our hands off, stand back, relax and let God work.

Trust God whether it is finances, relationships, your own personal growth, health, or any number of numerous things that happen in our lives. God loves you and want only the best for you.

I found a personal word the Lord gave me several years ago when I was going through some things in my life:

“Oh, my daughter, you are mine! Relax in Me, put your trust in Me, put your hand in My hand. Whatever storm may blow, I am with you and I uphold you. The storm is brewing over you, but I am with you. You will see victory and good! You will eat the good of the land because my favor is upon you! My seal is upon you! I love you!”

I was encouraged then and I am encouraged today. Our God is a good God and loves us and wants the best for us!!!

High Things

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Cor 10:5

Do you have high things in your life? Education, wealth, sense of own importance, your own goodness, pride in your place in society? Often these “high things” go against God and hinder our spiritual growth.

God is not against education & wealth but they sometimes interfere with God moving in our lives because we place them ahead of everything.

God has a great sense of the ridiculous. He will use the unlikely person over who the world would exalt.  God will often use the fringes of society instead of high society.
