The Lord will change us with His Living Word, which is the Bible. This happens when we are willing and obedient, desiring and wanting to change.
The verse for today, 7th August is from the Book of Exodus, Chapter 33, verse 14. We have this from 3 versions of the Holy Bible.
And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. (Version KJV)
And the Lord replied, I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest – everything will be fine for you. (Version NLT)
And He said, My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. (Version NKJV)
Rest is a requirement, rest rejuvenates. It changes routine, we get to see things from a different perspective. When we go through a busy routine daily, we neither consider nor notice many people, many beautiful aspects of the nature and surroundings around you. Rat race reduces vision!
For taking rest, trust is required. Trusting people whom you entrusted responsibilities would rise up to expectations. Trusting family members to do the needful. While some may fail, giving feedback and taking corrective steps is required. Remember how you have improved by receiving feedback.
For taking rest, trusting the Lord, our savior is necessary. Our Creator who has written our name on the palm of his hand, loves us. Our Rock and Strong Tower is always with us, as an unshakable well protected fortress.
He’s always with us. He never sleeps and slumbers. He’s always watchful.
We may feel week, lacking wisdom. But if His presence is with us, if we go by the path which is the delight of the Lord, he will keep us secure, guide us, protect us. There is no reason for any kind of fear.
Our Lord is the Prince of Peace. Hence our Lord has given us what we require to become victorious, He leads us in the paths of righteousness.
Feeling lack and fearful and week is natural as we are in adequate in ourselves. But the greater truth what we need to be aware is that the Lord is with us. His presence is with us. Thus, with Peace and no anxiety we can face tomorrow, we can take our next steps.
Seek the presence of the Lord, because of Him, without striving we can accomplish, through rest we can progress towards the Lords plan and purpose from our lives. Have a blessed day.
