Psalms 4:8 “In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for YOU alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.”
Pursue more than “battle” (with Zeal unrelenting) till passed are great levels of Faith when exhaled.
See HIS heart filled with grace past amazing. Therefore, oh my soul! Seek HIS presence…beyond this Life’s veil!
Hallelujah! THY face is in focus!
Hallelujah! My faith is aflame!
Seek CHRIST, our own KING, and
HIS glorious domain most pursuant, foremost…with Priority’s heights.
Chase HIS limitless favor, our GOD and Love’s SAVIOUR! Yea, charge through the Darkness…enclothed with HIS Light!
Hallelujah! My face has been lifted!
Hallelujah! THY faith endless be!
So rather than taking “offensive”
next steps, choose Surrender…for
HIS is the battle.
As exampled by HIM, choose CHRIST’s Peace to taste sweetly as servants reflective, with faces… like candles!
Hallelujah! THY face draws our souls!
Hallelujah! Our faith now shines brightly!
As HIServant and living candle with you,
Devotional: Matthew 11:29 “Take MY yoke upon you and learn from ME, for I AM gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
It is one focus to cast off all Pride, then race towards where HE guides us to go. It’s another to chase “the battle” but not follow through with what those newly “birthed” in CHRIST need next.
The Pharisees were indicted by GOD for converting a soul but then loading them down with their laws and perverting GOD’s grace. (Matthew 23:15) They saw the battle for the soul “end” with getting that person under their laws immediately.
That’s both errant and far from any definition of Good News…let alone resting in HIS Victory!
So as HIS children, we must follow through preaching HIS pure Hope and endless victory…already won. We must focus all eyes on HIS face and great grace which compel our souls service for JESUS all the more!
Agreed? We must press beyond the “battle” aspect so that others can also rest in HIS finished work…finally ceasing from striving to “earn” Heaven.
These selfless “efforts” then reflect the very heart and face of our LORD JESUS!
Romans 15:13 “May the GOD of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT you may abound in hope!”
So as HIS candles with trimmed wicks and full flames, shine HIS Light through your vessels for the whole world to see! By HIS power, lead the Lost to HIS rest!
Amen and amen!
