James 1:1-5:20

“How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow?” James 4:14

You know, that’s so much easier to say than to actually do isn’t it? And yet, who knows what tomorrow will REALLY bring.

You never know, tomorrow may not hold anything that you fear and everything that God had planned for you long ago.

I know that the moment you’re standing in right now may seem dark and hopeless and you might even be tempted to believe that God’s plans are to harm you. But the Truth of His word reassures us that it’s not His plan to harm us, but to prosper us. Because, you see,

Behold my friend,

My friend, you ARE His Beloved. He delights in your prosperity because you are His Beloved people. There is no reason for anxious toil or burning the candle at both ends, so to speak, for the LORD gives rest to His Beloved.

“Oh Lord Jesus, I need rest! I thirst for the quiet waters and the green pastures. My body aches for respite from the toil and the anxiety and the stress. Lord, I don’t know about any of the others out there reading this, but I for one am in need of some solid, soul-deep rest. Psalm 4:8 says that

You alone, O Lord, can make me dwell in safety. Only You my Savior, my God, have the ability to make me lie down AND sleep IN PEACE.

Jesus, thank You for putting forth the effort and dealing with the pain that comes with overcoming; as many Christians through the ages have experienced victory in Jesus is not easy, but You tell us that it is worth it. Please help us to take heart from Your Word and to actively encourage each other in our faith so that,

And to remember:

Repeat after me,

I HAVE been given authority over ALL the power of the Enemy and I will use it every chance that I get! Because people need to know that Jesus loves them.
