DAILY BREAD- Ps. 62:1 & 2 “My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation. He is my fortress, I will never be shaken…”
We can know that NO MATTER WHAT is happening in our lives or in the world, the Lord our God sustains us. He is always with us. He desires to lead and guide, comfort and console.
If we lose our peace to the things of the world, to the things of our lives, let us take that as a clear sign that we must detach from it all, take the time to go away with Him, let Him speak to us; fill our spirits, our souls, and our minds until we once again are at peace. Do not emerge until peace is encompassing and passes all understanding. Praise and worship, listen and receive, restore and refresh. Peace be still.
It is out of that peace we can then process the events around us through His eyes and respond accordingly. Without His eyes, we can become forlorn, distraught, agitated, impatient, and afraid.
If you are experiencing these symptoms of detachment, let it point you to exit your source of input from the world, escape to your haven who is Christ the Lord and do not emerge until such time as your restoration is complete.
He desires your companionship. He desires to heal you. He desires that your peace, not your opinion, lead others to Him.
Every soldier need a time of rest. Every child needs its Father. Every one of us needs time alone with Him.
Live there. Let it be your primary dwelling place. The world can wait.
