Weary No More, My Lord

Jeremiah 31 25

 

Today’s Word

Weary

Exhausted in strength, endurance, vigor or freshness

 

Today’s Verse

Jeremiah 31:25

I will fully satisfy the needs of those who are weary and fully refresh the souls of those who are faint

 

Weary and Weak

There are days when we feel exhausted, not only physically, but also emotionally. It seems as our mind is filled with worries. All together causes us to lose our grip on life, even if for a moment. Needless to say, we become weary, we lose our strength, it’s hard to endure the day.

Satisfy and Refresh

However, God says that He will satisfy our needs when we are weary, and he will bring a breath of fresh air into our souls so that we may regain our strength. Cling on this promise. Seek God’s refreshing strength. Put on the armor of the Holy Spirit and give it your cares, heartaches, and concerns. Let your mind be renewed by the spirit and his grace.

Weary No More

After we let God refresh our spirit, we free our heart, mind, and soul to rejuvenate one more time. It is a completely new mindset. God’s word, spirit, and love will surround our mind and fill it with strength so that we may no longer feel faint.

Thank God

Thank you Lord for strengthening my mind, body, and spirit, for filling my heart with hope, my soul with strength, and my mind with loving scripture. Guide me today, and every day. Remind me to be weary no more.

Hidden Secrets: Truth Revealed

Today’s Word

 Hidden

Keep (something) secret; prevent from being known or noticed.

Today’s Verse

 Luke 12

 2 Nothing is hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing is secret that will not be made known.

Secrets have a way of revealing themselves. In time, all is known. As we grow in faith and knowledge of the Word of God, the Holy Spirit works in our hearts so that we may confess all our sins, not some, all.

It is such a relief to our heavy hearts once we confess. Our burden is lifted, our heart its cleansed of worries, and our mind is freed from guilt.

Burdens are Lifted

Carrying a secret is like carrying a huge rock on our backs. It weighs us down. It keeps us from working at full capacity. It keeps us from reaching our goals.

Confessing our sins lifts our burdens from our hearts and minds. It stops weighing us down. It allows us to focus on the word of God.

 Hearts are Cleansed

After we confess all of our sins, our hearts are cleansed by God’s forgiveness and acceptance. Instead of putting our efforts into hiding our secret, we can now place our efforts on learning, studying, and applying the Word of God. It can now speak to our cleansed hearts so that we may continue to grow as believers.

A cleansed heart seeks pureness, kindness, and love.

 Mind is Free from Guilt

 After our hearts are cleansed, our mind is freed from all guilt. We have our thoughts of God in the forefront. We no longer have to worry, or feel guilty for hiding our secret. We let it out and with that; we released our mind from its binding guilty thoughts.

As our mind is freed, it seeks guidance, self-control, and knowledge.

Just as Jesus calmed the storm, He can calm our storming hearts. If we are in the midst of a storm, we must place our cares on Him. Let him calm our anxieties, problems, and crisis. As much as we want to resolve our issues, Jesus wants to resolve them with us.

We must cast our cares on Him. Ask him to lift our burdens and allow him to work in our lives without doubt or fear. We must place our faith in Him. Let him know we need his help. Acknowledge His power in our lives.

Let Your Request be Known

If your heart is suffering, let God know. Ask him to help you, to calm your worries, and to intercede. By letting Him know what is in our hearts, we acknowledge that we need Him and welcome His help.

Have Faith in Him

Once you let Him know your suffering and asked him for help, have faith that he will resolve it. By placing our faith in Him, we free ourselves of worries.

 

Acknowledge His Power

Lastly, acknowledge His power over your difficulties, cares, and worries. By acknowledging it, we accept His intercession on our behalf. We accept the resolve of our circumstances. We let His power calm our hearts.

Falling Asleep to the Sound of the Ocean

psalm 107 29

Psalm 107:29

He calmed the storm, and the waves  grew silent.

 

Ever since I was a baby, the stories told was that when I could not fall asleep, I could be walked along the ocean shore and I would immediately close my eyes and go to sleep. I have always had a love for the Ocean. I love the way it looks, I love the sound of the waves, and I get a relaxed feeling.

The Ocean’s beauty on a sunny day is breathtaking, amazing, and without comparison. I can stare at the distance and see it blend with the beautiful blue sky. I love seeing the fishing boats on the distance, and the surfers, boogie boarders, and people just being themselves. Some swim while others just sunbathe.

Whenever I plan a day on the beach, I look forward to the sound of the waves. Swiiissshhh, Swoooossshh, Woooosshhh, all are unique sounds that do not have a word to describe them. I hear a beautiful melody with every wave that forms, travels, and breaks on the shore.

There is such a relaxing feeling when I hear the waves. I put a blanket on the sand, lay on it, and before I know it, I am asleep. I does not matter how much other noise there is. I feel a hypnotic calmness that supersedes all the surrounding life happening at the moment.

There is a place in my heart for the Ocean. Maybe there are memories of my youth instilled in my heart. Either way, to this day, I can fall asleep every time I go to see the Ocean.

In the same token, that is how my life feels by trusting God. Knowing that he is by my side, I can fall asleep at night without any preoccupations. I have full trust in him. He is in control, not me. Why bother worrying? There is no need.

While the sound of the Ocean has a calming effect, so does the Word of God. It is in front of me to provide comfort. It gives me all I need. The Bible is a comprehensive book that includes all I need to make my day go well.

Verse for the Day – February 22, 2015

revelations 4 1

Verse of the Day

Revelations 4:1

After these thingsI looked and there was a door standing open in Heaven!

Have you ever thought about what Heaven will be like? What could be behind that door? Of course, the Bible gives us a sense of what it will look like. However, does your curiosity peak at that thought? Well, I know mine does. I know there will be a tree of life, a tree filled with all fruits, streets of Gold, and much more. Imagine! a street of gold. It must shine like no other. I often think if I am worthy to walk in such a beautiful road. It amazes me, because I know he found me worthy to do so.

Are you worthy? Has God called on you to be part of the life in Heaven? Have you accepted Jesus? Do you know you are saved?

Prayer for the Day

Our heavenly Father, thank you for finding me, for tugging at me to accept you into my heart. Thank you for taking the scales of my eyes, and leading my path to you. Let me be a servant of whom you see love, care, and understanding.
