“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14:14 NIV
As you ponder this Word, it’s as if your Life was a glass container and God created this container (you) to put good things in. Examples include joy, peace, confidence, creativity but it could also be hatred, jealousy and more.
But if you allow bad things in, It would keep the good things out and you became fearful. By allowing fear in, it pushes out peace and all the good things God longs to deposit in you.
Ok, now reverse your actions and empty out the negative in your life. God will fill your life with better things. He’ll give you a joy that breaks through the dark clouds. God will exchange ashes for beauty. He will trade your mourning with a new found joy. And maybe for the first time you will have peace that passes understanding in the midst of your storm.
