I needed something this morning to calm my stirring soul. I prayed for peace withing my mind and heart, looked at today's verse on biblegateway.com and read, "For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time." from 1 Timothy 2:5-6. I reached out to grab this Jesus, sitting at my fingers tips. I opened Him, and He led me directly to Himself, found in Psalm 64:
"Hear me, my God, as I voice my complaint;
protect my life from the threat of the enemy.
Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked,
from the plots of evildoers.
They sharpen their tongues like swords
and aim cruel words like deadly arrows.
They shoot from ambush at the innocent;
they shoot suddenly, without fear.
They encourage each other in evil plans,
they talk about hiding their snares;
they say, 'Who will see it?'
They plot injustice and say,
'We have devised a perfect plan!'
Surely the human mind and heart are cunning.
But God will shoot them with his arrows;
they will suddenly be struck down.
He will turn their own tongues against them
and bring them to ruin;
all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.
All people will fear;
they will proclaim the works of God
and ponder what he has done.
The righteous will rejoice in the Lord
and take refuge in him;
all the upright in heart will glory in him!"
Sometimes, the Word is what you need the most when emotions are high and in contention with your spirit. Lord Jesus, just as you spoke to the stormy seas, speak to my heart, my soul, my body and mind today! Give me peace and clear eyes to see You all the better. Thank You, God, for THIS day! In Jesus' name, bless every heart, mind, soul, and life that's in need of You, Your Love, Your Power, Your Mercy, Your Grace, and Your Salvation. AMEN!
Those who have ears, let them hear.......
