A Little Bit of Coffee & A Whole Lot of Jesus

-Outside the will of God, there's nothing I want. Inside the will of God there's nothing I fear.- AW Tozer.jpgIt’s the beginning of the week and new challenges are ever present. You sip on coffee in bed and anticipate the day ahead – you can’t predict what you will face; but you anticipate your actions.

Breathe, dear one. Just breathe in this new day and year. Hold that warm mug of coffee and pray to the one who made your inmost being. He is with you and will help you conquer this day ahead. That coffee, though a kick starter, cannot truly ignite that beautiful heart – but Jesus can.

“Outside the will of God, there’s nothing I want. Inside the will of God there’s nothing I fear.” – AW Tozer

Devote this day to him. We need him. We long for him. Our lips are parched and need to be watered by his words. For his words are the only things that can satisfy our dry, cracked skin and make them whole again.

Let God move through you this day – and may it be our goal for the reminder of the year. We need to push self out of the way and let God reign supreme. For he alone can remove stress, worry and fear and truly make it flee from our lives.

“When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.” Psalm 94:19

May our lungs inhale his peace today and exhale tension. Let us cling on to his goodness and cast out that fear that haunts our earthy vessels.

We are children of the King of Kings. Let your heart dance in a sea of assurance and blood-pumping joy. God has commanded health over your body and soul. Claim that rich health.

Sip on your coffee, sweet one. Allow it to warm your body and give you that morning boost. However, rest in the comfort that all we need is Jesus and his marvelous power to fuel our lives today and through eternity!

Holding the Reins in a Whirlwind

ImageDo you ever feel caught up in a whirlwind? You feel encircled by a violent air fury that blows your hair in tangles. You keep your eyes open – looking forward, but the wind stings your eyes. It’s almost like you cannot catch your breath. You are exhausted.

Life can be like a whirlwind sometimes. Like riding a galloping horse, the breeze whips you in the face, and you are shaken.  You grasp onto the reins tightly – afraid you will tumble off the horse. You are not only set back by the speed, but the intensity forces you to grip on for your life!

However, Dear One, do not fret – for your God holds the reins! He is the master horseman, and He rides with you into the dark battle of life. He illuminates the forest, makes the trails smooth – and the sound of His voice calms the hooves of the horse.

The hard breeze may scare you, but you have a Father that is in control. He wants you to overcome the whirlwind of fury with grace and His strength! Let God hold tightly to the reins of your life. Let him speak peace to your worrisome mind. There is no need for unnecessary calloused hands! Remember, “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7) Trust Him always.

– PRAYER –

Almighty God,

I will trust you when I am afraid. Please erase the doubt and uncertainty in my heart. You are the Maker of All – and you want the best for me. I look up to you in times of trouble, and you always smile at me and relieve my worries. Thank you for your constant protection.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
