Whatever went awry yesterday or in the past, whatever mental mess we created with our poor choices, we are assured by His Spirit that we can confess our fears, doubts and bad choices and begin the day excited about His mercy and boldly walk RIGHT before God.
Great is His faithfulness, His love and mercies endure without end. His mercy and grace clears the way, and a new pathway in our brains lights up as we follow the Voice that says “This is the way, walk in it” We choose to THINK and be grateful for the freedom to choose Christ and His way, every day. “Oh Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever!” Psalm 106:1
Thank You Father for Your constant goodness, for You giving us the Holy Spirit, the Eternal Light in this dark world. “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12 – We choose to hang on to the Author and Perfecter of our faith, the Anchor of our soul. How? One just like Jesus, the Holy Spirit dwells within us, and we surrender our ways of thinking and responding and choose His.
Without Christ, without His holy presence shining through, there is no positive ending. With the Lord before us, we can THINK of JESUS and FEEL His eternal presence, and CHOOSE His mercy and grace and THINK of whatever is lovely as we count our blessings. We are surrounded by God’s angels no matter where we are.
By our Father’s lavish grace, angels are behind us, before us, to the right and the left, above and beneath us. Everywhere we are, Jesus is! Through the dark days, He is our light. Be assured that even in darkest place, we are never alone. Our hope shines bright at the end of every tunnel— As we walk through the valleys, His blazing Light leads us – Oh Lord Jesus, we acknowledge that You, the Light of the world, live in us. Enable us Holy Spirit to recall and remember that You shall never depart from us, that we are secure in You. AMEN
Unfortunately, many people measure their walk of faith when they compare their value against a world standard. The correct standard of value is based on the Word of God. The great I am, tells us who we are “in Him”. Practice self-examination while standing in front of the mirror that God holds up.
God says “Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 People see who we project –let them see what the Spirit of God says who we are. Allow Jesus to replace who you’ve always been. Our burdens are lifted as we trust Him at His Word. Strive to please God and not the success models of the world. If our teacher, coach or parent told us that we were not cut from the right fabric, remember “you were created in God’s image.” Shine baby, shine!
Often people look into mirrors that are distorted, however, if we look into Gods word — we see who He says we are. We are wonderfully and made perfectly to fulfill His purposethrough us —flaws and all! Seek to please God Almighty, the King of kings, Jesus. “Your beauty should come from inside you—the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. That beauty will never disappear. It is worth very much to God.” 1 Peter 3:4 ERV
My mental and physical health are biologically improved as I think of whatever is lovely, noble and true according to God’s Word.
