It’s far to easy to find the bad and the ugly in ourselves and those around us. I’ve read about righteous anger by Paul Tripp and how we combat and fight in the world we live in is through delighting in God most and not loving anything else more than that. So, as a christian, when bad and ugly things come our way, fight with God’s word. When our enemy accuses us, or hates us, or wants to slander us, we love them. We serve them, and trust in God because of His promises. Through it all, we can find rest in the battle through obedience to His calling for us. Another word for rest, is peace. Did you know, He promises us peace and hope in our lives? We can confidently surrender to Him knowing it is the very best thing to trust in Him because He is faithful and cannot deny Himself or who He is.
Be at rest knowing God is watching over you and loving you. Go to Him, then, talk to Him, and share the things that are on your heart. He cares. He wants to hear from you, for your sake. You need Him and He knows that and is tender about it.
May your heart be filled with the love of our Heavenly Father because of the Son of God by the power of the Holy Spirit at work in the hearts of those who are His own.
“Trust & Obey, for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.”
