Just Listen

Another quick thought: for whatever you may be facing—joys inexpressible or sorrow and stress—just simply listen to what God has to say.

"Now I will take the load from your shoulders; I will free your hands from their heavy tasks. You cried to me in trouble, and I saved you; I answered out of the thundercloud and tested your faith when there was no water at Meribah." Psalm 81:6-7

"Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it with good things." Psalm 81:10b

For the Hebrews the stomach represented emotion. The mouth lead to the stomach.
When we open our mouth, we give God access to our emotions; when we give Him our emotions, He promises to give us good things.

Quick Thought

Sometimes, as a writer, I want each entry to be long and exciting, like a well-written book. But sometimes, I just need to share the short, quick, but meaningful insights God has given me. Here's one, with many more to come. :)

"You will not need to fight this battle. Stand firm, hold you position, and see the salvation of the LORD on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid and not be dismayed. Tomorrow go out against them, and the LORD will be with you." 2 Chronicles 20:17

God tells us that we don't need to fight the battles we face. We only wear ourselves out because He has already won the battles for us. Lean on Him because He promises to be with us.
