The God Guided Life is Wonderful

eden08122015

Hey, it’s Country Girl day at Inspirations.home.blog

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us how our lives are hidden in Christ Jesus, protected, guided, and led by God, Himself.  The question is asked:  Are you beginning to see what a wonderful life the God guided and led life is?  Proverbs 16:9 is referenced: “A man’s heart devises his way; but the Lord directs his steps.”  And, the really great thing about that is this:  God will give you the desires of your heart when you delight yourself in Him.

This song fits the messages from the last two days, as well as this one, perfectly.  Being the country girl I am…Ms. Patsy Cline and Mr. Willie Nelson happen to be two of my favorite country singers, and they’ve done a wonderful job with this song.

Here’s to That Hush Within

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that we need to just determine to get peace and be still within.  That’s where the storms are, really, aren’t they?

When I think back on some of the worst times of my life, I find they were times that I didn’t walk away and get quiet within.  I didn’t take time to stop and regain my inner peace.  It doesn’t matter what it is, loss of a job, argument with hubby/wife, argument with your child, whatever crisis-and yes, those arguments are crises in your relationship because they can strain and even break the bond that’s crucial there, whatever it is, you need to just stop and regain your inner peace.  Just a quickly as you realize it’s going downhill, you need to step away and let God take the wheel.

He’ll remind you who and whose you are.  He’ll remind you how much strength and power you do have.  But, strength and power are not ours to rule over one another with.  Rather, the strength and power are ours to use to overcome the evil, the fear, the anger, the doubt, the loudness of the friction and strain on spirit-yours and theirs.  The Bible tells us that our strength lies in quietness and trust.  It’s hard to trust God when you’ve lost sight of Him within you.  When the “whatever” is screaming in your spirit, His Word in your Heart is pretty much inaudible; and your brain just freezes.  I know, I’m living proof.  And I’ve been on both sides of that fence.

Sometimes, you can’t walk away physically right then.  That’s one of the reasons the kingdom of Heaven is within us.  It’s one of the reasons His Word is to be written on our hearts.  It’s also one of the reasons we need to know our limits.  We need to know when we’re heading for the cliff, long before we get there.  I’ve found it’s a lot easier to just pray and kind of “refuel” with that Word, right when I suspect things are not as they should be.  In relationships, especially, it involves integrity and truthfulness.  It all really goes back to your standards and boundaries.  Peace is important to everyone’s well being, and also essential to promote progress and success.  Chaos makes it impossible to get things done, to learn, to teach, etc.  That’s why it’s one of Satan’s favorite games to play.

Praise God For His Goodness!

Here’s the song for the day!  This one works perfectly with today’s message.  When we get this attitude to stay in our awareness throughout the day, we’re sure to remain in that Sabbath Rest in His Presence.  Bethel Music does such an awesome job here!

Peace, Man, Peace…

eden08122015

Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us why keeping the peace within is so important.  Peace in the midst of all the chaos and confusion, the darkness and dreariness…Peace within is the mark of the Kingdom.  It is the gift and the mark of our Lord Jesus Christ, according to the message.

When I thought about this, I had to agree.  There are people who freak out and become suicidal over a job loss.  There are people who know the Lord, who go through some horrendous storms in their lives…and come out smiling and praising the LORD.  “Peace, be still…and know that I am God,” says He.  And He’ll never fail you!  Peace within is cultivated and kept strong by knowing Jesus intimately, on a personal level.  You won’t find Him in church alone.  If you’ll remember, He went everywhere.
