This morning, I woke up feeling overwhelmed. Do you ever feel that way? I felt like most of the world was against me, and that feels like too much. I prayed that God would take away my burdens and give me rest for my soul. We are always supposed to be happy and cheery, but nobody is happy all of the time. If there is a day that you feel weary and your burdens are too much, God is there to give you rest.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
–Matthew 11:28 (NIV)
There are battles going on the spiritual realms, that we cannot see. I think that we can feel them. On those days, when I start to feel down, I have to pray. Sometimes, I put too much value on the feelings. It is easy to get caught in a downward spiral of gloom. The moment that I start to feel down, I need to start praying. The Lord will fight for me. I just have to pray. God will fill the void. God will restore my peace of mind and go fight my battles for me.
“The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
–Exodus 14:14 (NKJV)
God knows deep and secret things. Nothing can be hidden from God. He knows everything, even what is in the darkness. I do not need to know, unless God wants me to know. I just need to remember that the light dwells in God. If I continue to seek God, I pray to stay in the light with God.
He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.
–Daniel 2:22 (NKJV)
There is a God in heaven who reveals secrets. If God wants to reveal secrets to me, he will take care of me and help me handle the truth. God knows our past, present and future. We cannot keep secrets from God.
there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets
–Daniel 2:28 (NKJV)
He who reveals secrets has made known to you what will be.
–Daniel 2:29 (NKJV)
I am thankful for God giving me peace through the storm. God has done so many good things for me. God’s name is glorious. When I start to feel down, I have seek the Lord through prayer, and my heart will rejoice.
Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;
Talk of all His wondrous works!
Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!
–Psalm 105:2-3 (NKJV)
