May the love of Jesus rest upon you this day. Just stop for a moment and fall into His arms and rest in His awesome presence. Jesus is also calling your name and says, 1“come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” If you heed the call of the Lord Jesus, then your soul will find rest, indeed. I know this since the Lord has come into my life and it is amazing. Each time the Lord comes, I am swept away into a new place where there is only love. Joy fills the air. God’s kindness is all around me. There is mercy and forgiveness. All my worries are replaced with utter peace. This is when God speaks to my soul and gives me wisdom. I am filled with a new sense of where to go in life. The guidance from above is within me. I no longer find myself falling into sin, for God is my fortress. My life is fortified on the rock of Jesus. The Lord is my shield and nothing can keep me down, for Jesus lifts me up.
There is nothing like being surrounded by the presence of God. Once you’ve experienced such peace and tranquility, you won’t help but go back to the Lord, in order to be filled again and again. In these moments that we give ourselves over to God, we are filled with the Holy Spirit. This then gives us a new outlook on life and what God can do through us. Even our desires our changed and conformed to know and do the will of God. If you have never experienced God’s presence, you may not understand how this happens and why. However, if you are humble and open to God, then these same experience and more will happen in your life also. Our faith in Christ is just the beginning of something greater. If you are a believer, you won’t believe the things that God has in store for your life. He will take you places that you have never seen before. You will do things that you thought were impossible. The Lord God makes us more than conquerors. Not only does he cast out all addictions and the bondage of our lives, but His healing power changes our heart. Even our weaknesses can become our strengths.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, we call upon Your Name, that You may fill us with the Holy Spirit. Allow us into Your awesome presence, that we may learn of You, my King. Give us wisdom. Help show us the way. We are here to rest a while with You, for You are our delight. There is nothing like You, God. Nowhere else can we find refuge from the storms of life. There is no place else where we can experience eternal joy and happiness. We need the peace that only You can bring. We are lost without You. Thank You Lord for Your forgiveness and mercy. I can feel Your compassion and am amazed by Your grace. Thank You for putting Your arms around me and wiping away my tears away. When I am down, You are always there for me. You lift me up. My sorrows are no more, when Your peace fills my soul. Your love is amazing and it changes everything. Surely, my burdens are light because You are in my life. Thank You for caring so deeply for me. I love You, my dear Lord and Savior. My hope is in You. Amen.
