2018-12-10 - God's Happy Place
God is with us today. Even when we are in the mist of having to endure, God doesn't end it there. We can trust the Lord with our feelings and questions. God isn't surprised. He knows what's going on, and He has a plan. He will rejoice over you and me. We can find rest in His love. I want to be in that happy place. Rest is not automatic for me. How about you?
God is compassionate. On two different occasions, David wrote about the Lord's loving side.
Psalm 116:5: The Lord is righteous, compassionate, and gracious.
May the words of the prophet Zephaniah give you a boost today … The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17 NIV)
Lord, Please fix my messes. Give me a calming spirit, and may I find that happy place that comes from trusting You and not my fears. In the name of Jesus' name, Amen.
