Daily Thought For April 10, 2014 (God Is One Your Side)

God Is On Your Side

     I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU; YOU NEED ONLY TO BE still. I know how weary you are, My child. You have been struggling just to keep your head above water, and your strength is running low. Now is the time for you to stop striving and let Me fight for you. I know this is not easy for you to do. You feel as if you must keep struggling in order to survive, but I am calling you to rest in Me. I am working on your behalf; so be still, and know that I am God. 
     Quieting your body is somewhat challenging for you, but stilling your mind may often seem downright impossible. In your striving to feel secure, you have relied too heavily on your own thinking. This struggle to be in control has elevated your mind to a position of autonomy. So you need the intervention of the Holy Spirit. Ask Him to control your mind more and more soothing you from the inside out. Take time to rest in the shadow of the Almighty while I fight for you. 

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. ―Exodus 14:14 

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! ―Psalm 46:10 

The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace. ―Romans 8:6

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. ―Psalm 91:1
