I find God on a quiet day, in nature, the sound of wind always reminds me of Jesus. As if He is whispering to me. Also in my daily devotions, or wanderings in the bible.
Today “faith” was a dominant word in my day; it came reading Hebrews; all of the people who chose (not just obey) to walk in faith. Abraham offered up his son (how awful a decision to make), the only thing Sarah ever wanted was a child and Moses, a grown man; preferred to suffer hardships than live within the walls of great wealth.
3 John 1:3
It gave me great joy when some believers came and testified about your faithfulness to the truth, telling how you continue to walk in it.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
At one time or another, we have begun the healing process. Perhaps emotionally from a broken heart, or physically from a surgical procedure. There are literally so many types of pain and hurt, there is no one cure.
I’ve been healing from a four-inch incision in my lower back. Thanks to meds, I rarely have pain, and in its place, I find myself moody, offtrack and unable to “use my (kind) words.” The truest rest I’ve found, is in my Savior. He is after all; comforter, peacemaker, and “home” to those who believe in him.
When I feel sorry for myself or am frustrated at what I can’t do “right now,” I realize this is when I need to draw closer to God. He isn’t pushing me away, I am doing that all by myself.
Psalm 23:2-3 He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.
1 Peter 1:21 …..Now your faith and hope can rest in him alone.
And where you are, Lord — I am free.
