Be still and know that I am God. — Psalm 46:10
Usually, I am writing from a place of just wanting to be filled with God. I’m like a thirsty person just wanting a drink of water. I am ever so aware of how easily I wander from Him and His ways. I’m usually like the lamb who strayed just a little too far away from the Shepherd. Sometimes I look around to find Him and I just realize that I haven’t been near Him. I want with all of my heart to stay close to Him under the protection of that rod and that staff.
This morning I am not writing from that place. I am writing from a place of almost perfect contentment. I’ve never been so sure that God is on me, in me, and working through me. I’ve never been more rested in Him. With that being said, I hate that little voice that seems to sit ever so near that whispers, “Just wait . . . turmoil is right around the corner.” I’m so glad that a while ago while working out at Total Fitness that I heard the song “to hell with the devil” by Stryper. I’ve listened to it so many times since then. When I start to think that things can’t possibly stay good for me, those are the exact words I say.
You know what Lord? You have been so good to me. I could sit here and think about all the stuff that has to transpire today and all the stuff I have to do, but I just want to sit here at Your feet as long as I can. I don’t know if I’ve ever enjoyed You more. I don’t know if I’ve ever been this content knowing without a doubt that You’ve got me. Help me always picture in my mind Satan coming to bow before You and asking if he can mess with me or my family. This is what he had to do to harm Job. I would guess it is the same with me. To hell with the devil for that is his fate. To hell with the words that he whispers in my hear. I am so sorry that I have believed he was Your opposite. At best, he is only the opposite of one of Your angels. He is nothing like You. Grant me permission, Lord to keep this peace as long as possible today and to simply enjoy being Yours.
Moment by moment I’m kept in His love
Moment by moment I’ve life from above
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine
Moment by moment oh Lord I am thine
