“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
This is the Lord’s advice for us as we navigate life in our dramatically changing times. Jesus prayed and is still praying for us. We need to meditate on our Lord’s personal prayers. Jesus has filled the Bible with so many different situations where, trusting in the Lord was all that was needed.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
I encourage you to be an encourager to others. Together, our stories of our “confinement” will be laced with wonderful stories of how the Lord has provided and who He used.
Our time separated from each other is a good time to reflect upon how many times and how many ways the Lord has blessed you in recent weeks. Notice who God used to deliver His blessings to you!
These are great days of opportunity for the Lord to provide all of our needs. Please step back and consider how many ways He has blessed you each and every day!
