Your Monday Muse from I AM THEY _October 2020
Good Morning Friend!
Let’s chat a minute. Can we be real together?
Where are your feet planted right now?
Are you feeling surrounded by the darkness?
Do you feel tossed around by the storm of divisiveness that is threatening our country?
Are you slipping down a slope of fear, doubt, and anger?
Do you feel the brutal lies and words of hate trying to penetrate to your heart?
It’s time to remember that as a believer of Christ, you are firmly planted on a solid foundation.
Jesus is your ROCK and your FORTRESS. He is solid and stable. He is strong and impenetrable.
We are not fighting against each other.
We are not fighting against what we can see.
We are fighting a spiritual battle. We are fighting against a host of wickedness in spiritual places.
And, it’s very easy to want to feel battered and bruised after the year we have been facing.
It’s easy to wake up today and be discouraged and feel despair.
But, we can’t give up. We can’t give in.
STAND FIRM in your FAITH!
Rebuke what is evil. Turn away from fear.
Call out to God, who loves you enough to send His only Son to die for you.
Cling to what is good. Trust His Word is true.
Remember that He has already conquered evil…and won!
Lean on God and know that HE is the ROCK!
“He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, and He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.” Psalm 40:2
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank you for always be dependable, solid, and stable. Thank you for giving us the power to overthrow the evil of the world just by calling your name. Help us to stand firm in our faith and put our hope in you. Despite what the world may try to tell us, YOU alone are worthy of our praise. You alone are unchanging and unmoving. You alone will fill our empty spaces and give us joy beyond measure. We love you and praise you and give you all glory! Amen!
