“RELAX IN MY HEALING, holy Presence. Be still, while I transform your heart and mind. Let go of cares and worries, so that you can receive My Peace. Cease striving and know that I am God.
Do not be like Pharisees who multiplied regulations, creating their own form of “godliness.” They got so wrapped up in their own rules that they lost sight of Me. Even today, man-made rules about how to live the Christian life enslave many people. Their focus is on their performance, rather than on Me.
It is through knowing Me intimately that you become like Me. This requires spending time alone with Me. Let go, relax, be still, and know that I am God.”
Psalm 46:10 (NASB) – Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
1 John 3:2 – Now we are children of God.
Jesus Calling for Kids
You Are My Child
“I am God, and you are My child. And like so many parents on earth, I want you to grow up to be like Me. To become more like Me, you need to spend time with Me. Relax in My Presence, while I work in your heart and mind. Let go of cares and worries so that you can receive My Peace. Be still, and know that I am God.
Don’t worry about what others think. Don’t worry about what’s “cool” or “in.” And don’t be like the Pharisees in the Bible. They got so wrapped up in their own rules that they lost sight of Me.
Keep your eyes on Me, and remember how much I love you. This helps you love Me and also love others with My Love.”
Why is it so difficult for us to “let go of cares and worries” so that we can receive His peace. I am not always successful at letting it all go and giving it all to Him. There are many times when I hold on to the cares and the worries way too tightly. I find it is hardest for me, when it is most important to me or when I am afraid that I might lose something important to me.
It’s not God that I do not trust…it is me or it is another person who figures in the outcome of the situation I am facing. You would think that if it is so important to me…I would want to hand it to God. Keeping a tight grip on the problem or situation is only going to make it worse…speaking from experience here, friends. I also know from experience that when God has His hand on the situation, the outcome is going to be for the good of everyone involved. He cares for us and our problems far more than we can imagine or understand.
I think that the next time I find myself putting a choke-hold on a problem or person…I am going to remind myself that it is imperative that I let go and give it to God. God is way better equipped to come up with a working solution than I am and He will reveal if I am a part of the plan in His perfect timing. Let it go, give it to God and wait on His timing. That sound like a God plan to me!!!
