We have an enemy who would love to render us ineffective, powerless, distracted. No! We will not stand by and be stolen from. We are to apply, even plead, this blood of the Lamb over our lives in His authority (Matthew 28:18-20). We are to proclaim it no matter what storm rages in our lives. We must know and believe deep down, without a doubt, that God’s protection is there for us, whether we feel it or not.

More Than Meets the Eye
Don’t let your eyes deceive you. What is going on in the natural and what you can see with your physical eyes is not the ultimate truth. “Fix your eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
He Goes Before
We must remember, He Goes Before Us. He’s the Leader. When we focus on this truth, all the heaviness we have been carrying shifts away. All the “leading” and planning, and organizing, and failing… it all falls to the side. We are reminded of HIS GREATNESS. His Lordship. His plan. His purpose.
A Brave & Tender Heart
It’s a brave thing to keep your heart a heart of flesh, tender and gentle in the midst of challenge, hurt, and the grief of this world. Next time that something hurts deeply and we are tempted to close off our hearts—we must surrender our hearts again to our Savior God. Let’s place our heart in His hands- the only place it will be truly safe and secure. To do this is an act of bravery, an act of trust, an act of faith.
He Will Bring You Through
If I could go back in time– back to that difficult season of my life– I’d like to tell myself something like this:
This thing that is trying to break you, God will turn it around and use it to remake you. This thing you grapple with, perhaps even feel stifling your breath… it will fade away. Rest in Him, Dear one.
Maybe a peach tree has more to do with life than originally thought. The prime peach we wait for still clings to the branch, not ready for harvest. But a handful of other ones– they are ready for the harvest and even fall to the ground. Life is definitely similar…
A Place of Rest
Yes, I pray that both you and I would wrap ourselves in the quilt of FAITH starting here and now. It’s faith that leads to a restful, calm, trusting life. Even when we are surrounded on every side. Even when physically it looks like things can’t possibly work out.
