There is a place inside the Father, where I see His holiness like a covering over me. His tender whispers and calming touch on my heart are, at times, the only way I can hold onto peace. I lean into His chest when life brings a whirlwind of questions and complications. Life continues to march forward, whether we are tethered to God or not. The only way to not get lost in the waves is to continue to focus on the Lighthouse. Remember the word you asked God for during our first day here together? Today, I want you to spend some time reminding yourself. Look back at your word and let it sink into your heart all over again. Don’t lose sight of the beacon of light it is for you from the shore. Has God begun to move in that word this month? Has He confirmed your word in any way? Sometimes, after receiving my word for the year, it feels like I can’t escape confirmation of it and other times I seem to have to search a little harder to see through the fog of life. Both are fine places to be. Neither is wrong. Both are process.
I just want you to take a moment with your word and His Word (the Bible) and focus your heart and mind before we transition to the next month of 2018.
I challenge you to be still before the Lord today, and see what He has to say to you. Let Him touch your face and hold you close. Lock eyes with the One. Can you feel Him near? Let all the troubles of life melt away in His gaze, and just be held.
Remember, He never needs anything from us. He only wants our willingness.
Lord, today I am willing to be held. Lord, today I admit that I can’t do life without You. So many things are up in the air and I can’t make life right, but You can. You ARE what is right in my world.
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
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Psalm 37:7
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105
