Devotional: Rest in the Lord

“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.” ISAIAH 43:25

Rest in the Lord, wait patiently, have faith in Providence and God’s love. In this way, you actually get your life under new management. What happens when a business repeatedly fails to show a profit?

Usually it gets new management, doesn’t it? A human life that hasn’t been going well likewise calls for new management. Does everything go wrong for you? Why? Poor management. Are you nervous and tense and tired? Why? Poor management. Are you resentful and grumpy and bitter, full of hate and miserable as a result? Why? Poor management. You are making life hard for yourself because you don’t think right, you don’t act right, you don’t plan right.

Get your life under new management. Do it by opening your mind and heart to Jesus Christ. Take Him into your thinking and living.

Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you - Job 22:21

Pray for God’s guidance, because you will never come out right as long as you think wrong.  Let Him take over and trust Him for guidance and for the outcome.

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for the great truth that we are not alone, that You are always with us and always will be, to the end of our lives and beyond. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
