Today is the Sabbath, so let it truly be a day of rest and peace for you.
I encourage you to find space to get on your knees and lift your holy hands and exalt our Father. Let your heart and mind become covered in true peace. That peace that surpasses all understanding. It is real. It is available.
Our God is the God of Peace.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:15-17
The peace of Christ rules over me. I am called to be a carrier of peace. When the spirit of fear comes knocking at the door, remember that Christ rules over you. Then you can close the door to the lie and allow the Spirit of peace to continue to reign.
I see you (the reader) standing at the front door of your home and a Light is shining from behind you. That Light is overwhelmingly beautiful and when you open the door as fear knocks, I see you smiling in the face of fear as the Light behind you comes forward to consume the darkness of fear. In that instance, it vanishes. In that moment you become light. Then as that carrier of the Light, you can proceed into the world and as you do the light within you eats up all the darkness.
This is what’s available to you. Every day.
Prayer Moment: God, let today be the day that each one of us realizes the Light of the world lives within us and consumes all darkness around us. We carry that Light inside. God, shine brighter. Be bolder. Let that Light accompany me everywhere and let it eat up all the darkness and fear. Everywhere I tread let, the Spirit of God blaze a path in front of me and all around me that the world will know Who You are.
Therefore, God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed- not only in My presence, but now much more in My absence- continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life- in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing. But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. So, you too should be glad and rejoice with me. Philippians 2:9-18
