What You Need

Monday-2
“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭10:41‬ ‭NIV‬‬
The amazing thing about grace is that it immediately lifts the burden of “everything that should be done” and replaces it with the “one thing that needs to be done”. 
What is that “one thing”? 
It is sitting at the feet of Jesus. Begin there.
Drop your to-do list, close your eyes and take some time to sit with Jesus today.
When you sit at the feet of Jesus, time stops and eternity enters.
Let eternity in. 
Then tackle your lists.

Daily Strength​

“Give us today our daily bread.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Lord, give me what I need for today.

Not what I needed yesterday.

Not what I will need for tomorrow.

What I need today.

Today’s strength.

Today’s sustenance.

Today’s vision.

Today’s peace that passes understanding.

It might look different than I expect it to but it will do the job nonetheless.

You are amazing like that.

Thank you, Lord, for today’s provision, for today’s daily bread.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Personal Bravery

original

The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]”

‭‭Habakkuk‬ ‭3:19‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

The Lord will give you what you need today.

He will BE what you need.

God knows what you are facing today.

He stands, fights, pours courage into you so you can to rise up and walk forward.

Worship Him. Get lost in the music of heaven. Remind yourself who God is and that you are His.

Your circumstances may not change but they will not have the same effect on you. They will not cause your heart to swell with fear because it is already filled with the presence of God Himself.

Your circumstances will not stop you from going forward but will be a catalyst to your growing to new heights in Christ.

Don’t look to the world to give you what you need.

Look to Jesus.

Ask him to be your personal bravery and give you strength to face whatever heights you must climb today.

Trust Him. He will give you what you need to do it.

He is good like that.

Have a wonderful day spending time with Jesus and drawing from Him what you need.
