Where Is God? Sunday Glimpses

by Nan Jones   @NanJonesAuthor

Lord, teach us to rest in You. Teach us to lay aside our busyness, our agendas, our plans and just rest. In. You. You, Lord, are the Creator of the Universe and yet You desire a relationship with us. You are the Mighty God, the King of kings and the Lord of lords and yet You catch and keep our tears in a bottle because they are precious to You. You are faithful and true, merciful and good - the Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace and, even so, You refer to us as the apple of Your eye. That's amazing.

Praise You Lord for Your love and tender mercies toward Your children. I ask that You seal this beautiful Truth within our hearts and awaken our spirits to embrace it fully. Shelter us, Lord. Hide us in the shadow of Your wing until the calamities pass us by. 

I love Your power and the fact that You guard Your child with a fierce love. Wow! Why am I ever afraid Lord? You haven't given us the spirit of fear, but one of love, power, and a sound mind. I know this to be true. And yet, at times, I choose to focus on the object of my fear rather than on the power of my God. Forgive me Lord. Forgive my friends who find themselves doing the same thing. Help us to recognize the voice of the deceiver that leads our thoughts and focus astray so that we walk in fear rather than power, peace, and confidence. I ask that You shore up our determination to keep our minds steadfast in praise to You, full of thanksgiving and trust. You are wonderful, Lord. We love You and we give You praise.
