Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that it is in quietness and trust that we find our strength. Some years ago, God gave me a daily prayer. One part of it is, “Thank you, Lord, for the peace to find strength within, and for the strength to seek your peace in my life.” God has promised us, both peace and strength. That strength is His power, which is made perfect in our weakness.
My life began to change when I began to pray that prayer, along with the Lord’s Prayer, daily. In terms of peace and strength, I can’t even begin to tell you how much anxiety left my life. I KNOW that I Know, that I Know this: Fear and anxiety are powerless in my life. Strength is just automatically there, it seems. Very rarely do I have to ask for it. What a beautiful freedom this is! Praying this daily reminds me there’s something I have within that’s powerful. It also reminds me that I have that power, or strength within, to actively seek God’s peace in any situation, at any time, for any reason. It reminds me that I am in authority over the circumstances; not vice versa. Make it a point, daily, to remind yourself that God’s peace and power are yours. Nobody can take them away from you, and nothing can overcome either one of them. I encourage you to visit the twolisteners.org website and read the message for yourself. Each message in the book, “God Calling,” reinforces scripture found in the Bible, and vice versa.
I chose this song by Chris Tomlin to remind us what an awesome God we serve; and what an awesome God serves us.
Love you from Café du Mondieu
