Gift of Desire and Power

God’s Promise – Gift of Desire and Power

When we listen to the Holy Spirit, who was sent to guide us through life, God will give us the desire and the power to do His work, those things that please Him.

It’s interesting, as we mature in the Word and continue this journey, we find that these things please us as well. We no longer walk in the dark and grey tones of life. We walk in the light, both pastel and bright. Stress loses its hold on us, and our experience becomes more peaceful.

Not all experiences in life will be pleasant, but from my experience, the process is much less stressful and much more peaceful.

The righteous person may have many troubles,  but the Lord delivers him from them all.
Psalm 34:19

We will suffer setbacks, hardships, misalignments, betrayal, and more. Jesus suffered them and died so we can be redeemed. The beauty is that God knows what we will go through in this life and provides or converts experiences to help draw us nearer to Him.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28

It is our decision to seek God’s rest and peace. We have been given the power to follow our Free-will or God’s Will. Which is your choice?

Let’s vow to stop looking out and begin looking inward to the Holy Spirit who guides us.

Weary? Rest in the Lord’s Arms

God’s Promise – I will give you rest.

I think we’ve all been weary at some point in our lives. Weary according to Vine’s Dictionary means – beaten down. While there are degrees of being beaten down, I think it’s safe to say, few have been immune. The Lord instructs us that at these moments we should run to the Him, hand over our cares, and rest in His arms.

Do you remember running into your parent’s arms when things were going wrong? Image the sense of warmth, safety and rest you experienced at that moment. Did you feel as if you could exhale? Well, our Lord provides warmth, safety, calm and rest. All we have to do is believe in His promise, be obedient to His Word, have unquestioning faith and turn everything over to Him.
