Compassionate, Christlike Heart 

Psalm 103:2,4 Praise the Lord, my soul…who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,

When your heart breaks, God will heal your heart with Christ’s love and peace.  God is close to the broken-hearted. He is remaking and redeeming our broken hearts into hearts modeled after Christ’s heart of compassion. Let God heal your broken heart into a heart of Christ. 

Purpose of Goodness and Light 

Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Hear God’s promise of faithfulness as you persevere in your faith. If you do not give up, you will be used for God’s kingdom, reaping a harvest of goodness and light. You are His beloved, created and intended for a great and blessed purpose. Let His powerful Spirit flow through you, strengthening you for Hos kingdom work of love and service.  

John 8:12 12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

God breaks the darkness of doubt in us with the light of His love. His light infiltrates the core of our being, and transforms our walk from doubt to faith.   He drives the dark of doubt away. He lights our paths.  That is the power of His love. Ask God to fill you with His light and transform your doubt into faith, your fears into hope. He says: I AM the light of the world. He is faithful. 

God’s light overcomes fear 

Psalm 27:1 1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—

    whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life—

    of whom shall I be afraid?

When the darkness of fear creeps into your mind, let the light of God’s love overcome it.    His light is constant, joyful, protecting and fear-extinguishing. There is no fear in God’s love. Let His light and His love be your strength and shield from fear. 

Quiet Waters 

Psalm 23:2 …he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.

God leads us to stillness. Be aware of how He guides your circumstances to come to a place of peace and rest. It is their where the very core of your being, your soul, finds renewal and contentment. When you come to a place of stillness in your soul, you experience Christlike peace (beyond all understanding). Embrace the stillness, the quiet, the peace.

Fruitfulness and Deliverance of God 

Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.” (Exodus 14:13)
What fear grips you? What anxious circumstance enslaves you? Surely God’s people knew the daily fear of enslavement by Pharoah. Yet, through Moses, God sent a message of hope: I will deliver you. Stand firm. We receive the same message through Jesus Christ! Christ’s death and resurrection brings the eternal hope that love overcomes fear, peace replaces anxiety, and faith in God brings deliverance. Let God be your Deliverer from all fear. The fruit of His Spirit in you is love and peace. Pray with faith that He will transform your anxieties into peace, your fears into love. 

Held as Children of God 

The eternal God is a dwelling place, And underneath are the everlasting arms -Deuteronomy 33:27 

What joy it is to hold a child, bringing security and comfort to the child. In the same way, our Heavenly Father holds us, alleviating our fears, and replacing them with His unconditional love and unsurpassable peace.  He gazes on us with joy. He will never let us go.  Our Father God is our eternal home.  We are comforted knowing His arms are everlasting.
