Unplug

img_8513

You can’t know God’s will by looking from the world’s perspective.

You must unplug from it.

God’s will, His good, pleasing and perfect will for you isn’t difficult but it is very different.

Rest in Him,

Renew your mind,

Refresh your heart.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what Godʼs will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

How do you unplug from the world?

How do you connect with God most: the Word, worship music, a walk, nature or being with others?

What refreshes your heart?

Do whatever you need to do to draw back from the world and draw close to God today.

Unplug from the world and plug into the presence of God.

You will be amazed how much that fixes things.

Chill

Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.”

Psalm 116:7 NIV

Don’t let a bad attitude rob you of a good opportunity to be used by God today.

The very best way to to change your attitude is reminding yourself who God is and who you are in Christ.

When the world crowds you and makes you feel claustrophobic with all the “things needed ASAP”, it is good to take a moment to chill and remember that God is good and has been good to you.

It resets your perspective and returns your internal state from “fret” to “rest”.

Unwind your worry.

Reset your soul to rest.

God has called you to be a change maker where you are.

He will give you everything you need to do it including reminding you to get out of the way.

Let go of all the things you can’t control today and reset the one thing you can- your attitude.

 

What does re-setting your soul to rest in Jesus look like for you today?

Repeat It

“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Hebrews 13:5 NIV‬‬

You can’t see it in the English Translation but in the original language it reads more like this:

“for He, God, Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down or relax My hold on you! Assuredly not!” ‬ ‭(Amphlified Version)

It is worth repeating because it is a truth worth believing.

And one you can easily forget.

When you are facing financial stress and can’t see how you are going to make it, go back to this promise. When you are feeling like you don’t have enough, go back to this promise. When you are feeling that you are not enough, go back to this promise – Jesus will not fail you, give you up or leave you without support. He will not leave you helpless. He will not forsake you. He will not relax His hold on you. No never, no never, no never.

Your peace does not lie in enough but in Jesus.

Circumstances will come and go but Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Repeat it and believe it.
