Daily Peace and Comfort
Do you sometimes wish that all your financial needs will be taken care of in an instant? That the money you have in your bank account will be more than enough to meet all your needs? The Bible declares that it is God’s perfect will for us to live a complete & abundant life. But there is a process. As soon as we are ready to go through it, the sooner God will show Himself faithful to His promises to supply our needs according to His riches and glory.
[ “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” – 2 Corinthians 9:8 ]
[ Part 2 of Multiplied Blessings ]
You can find peace through trusting God above all else. You can only have one Master. This world may tempt you into believing that money, influence or connections is the answer to your problems today. That is not true. The answers is in God alone. Everything is under His control. Today, start focusing your eyes on Him. Believe that He will hold you by your right hand and lead you to the good life He has planned for you.
[ “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” – Matthew 6:24 ]
Jesus wants us to have “a full and satisfying life” without getting bogged down by things that don’t add value or meaning, or things that pull us away from Him. Do you need His help today? God’s message is simple. Everything that we need is IN Him and if we seek Him FIRST, then, whatever we need will be taken care of. Let us not look at money as our source for everything but to God and Him alone. Always remember that our God is everlasting, infinitely rich and glorious.
[ “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” – Matthew 6:33 ]
Your prosperity is connected to your purpose. When we acknowledge God as our source and follow His will for us to share our blessings, we will experience what it means to “truly live”. The Lord Jesus reminds us to lay for ourselves treasures in heaven. Everything is in His hand and there is nothing He will not give if we choose to follow Him.
[ “Lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” -Matthew 6:20 ]
( Part 3 of The Gift of Rest )
Regardless of where you are in life, realize that in every stage of your journey, “rest” is required for you to level up to the next phase. Remember that even God rested & was refreshed after His work. He wants us to do the same, because resting allows us to appreciate the journey & not just the destination. It is a gift that He really wants us to enjoy.
[ “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10 ]
God doesn’t want us to be tired all the time. He wants us to rest. In fact, commands us to do it. As Christians, we all need to take a break to restore ourselves. Taking the time to rest allows us breathe in and discover God’s comforting embrace in the midst of our busy schedules.
[ Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” -Matthew 11:28 ]
Money can never give us true peace and satisfaction. And whenever we put our trust in our own strength, we will realize later on that all our efforts is still not enough. God is reminding us today that everything in this world can fail us. The only thing that holds up when the going gets tough is our faith in God. So if you want peace of mind right now, remind yourself that the only security that you need in your life is the Lord. You are safe with Him. Just trust Him.
[ Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5 ]
We will never understand God’s entire plan, our minds are much too small to comprehend His infinite wisdom. Maybe you have been waiting for God to move, but God is also waiting for you to show your faith by obeying His leading and direction. This is a new day! Stretch your faith and begin to follow God’s will for you.
“Take delight in the Lord and He will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and He will help you.” Psalm 37:4-5
Can anything separate us from the love of Jesus? The Bible declares, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from His love. Jesus wants to be one with us and share His glory. He came that we may have life and have it abundantly.
[ “Indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:39 ]
Where can we find true happiness? In the Bible, Jesus shared with us the great formula for happiness. By having a pure heart and a good attitude in a difficult situation, we open the door for God’s Presence to enter our lives. In God, we can experience a deep sense of happiness that nothing or nobody can ever give us.
“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” -Psalm 51:10
