There are many things weighing on my mind, Father. I ould humbly ask for your wisdom and direction. There is no better source than You. Fill me with Your Spirit that I may do Your will. Amen.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27
“Therefore do no worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34
So, Lord, things are entering my life that are giving me reason to fear and be troubled. None of us knows what tomorrow will bring. But as I hear it, it makes me want to circle the wagons, to bring my loved ones in and to prepare for the worst. The worst may very well come, but does being consumed with readiness on a physical front really accomplish anything? Is it unwise to not prepare?
Lord, we talk daily and I don’t think that I am avoiding truth. I just don’t feel that You are directing me to stockpile and prepare for the end. Is it coming? …yes. When? I surely have no idea whatsoever – but You do. I place my trust in You. If You called me to prepare in other ways I would but You are calling me to daily live my life out in You, through You, because of You! How does taking care of my needs, or even encouraging others to do so further Your kingdom? You are the proclaimer of peace – not fear! I choose to place myself in Your hands. I will not “worry about tomorrow” for tomorrow is in Your hands as well. Amen
