The battle was never ours. There is a peace and stillness we require in the understanding that our fussing and and worrying yield little. Resting on God is not just important but after we have allowed the word of God to open and cleanse the wound that has caused grief, we can expect God to heal and complete His renewal in His way. Wounds can worsen if they are not left alone undisturbed. But when safely in the hands of the healer there is hope. God is capable of awesome reconstructions from even nothing … how much more when we present our situations to Him.
Being still, does not mean being lazy … but these are times of meditation and recharging for tomorrow’s challenges. To see God’s hand, the hands of men needs to be bowed to God’s instructions. We need training in hearing God above the noise of our many meetings and seminars. To discern His redirection or push to move faster or perhaps to simply wait. There is need for days to be set apart for introspection on so many issues once we sense God calling us to the prayer closet. Many questions are answered after stillness … many victories completed while abiding in His peace.
Verses for further meditation
Psalm 46:10 ; Exodus 14:13
Thoughts for Business and the work place
Everything can change if only we have the right instructions and answers.
Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, replace the grief and panic from disappointments with the peace and stillness from above. Amen
As Nehemiah’s wall was built, so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste. Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts.
I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.
