Here is a word for the day, may you be blessed at the feet of Jesus in what ever you do and wherever you go.
Matt.28:8-15 - Where is Jesus?
bible gateway passage
Where is Peace found?
At the feet of Jesus
What do we cling to in times of the unexpected and when we are afraid?
We may respond in denial and try to cover up our discomfort by pretending everything is as it should be.
But if we do that then we are not wholly there, we are not really showing up in truth like the rulers and guards that wanted the rolled away stone to be ignored, covered up with another story. A story that really wasn't true but a rationalization to present from fear.
But if we come to truth, stand on the ground where Jesus stands we have to face the truth at his feet. For He is truth and his love will cause our fears to be rolled away too. In this truth we are able to receive peace, the very peace Christ breathed in to his disciples and He breathes in to you and me today.
Peace is found in our facing fear and being overjoyed at the same time because He is with us.
There will always be questions in these unfamiliar times, when our lives are being made new because it is something we have not experienced before. That is what makes it completely new.
Do not be afraid Jesus tells us because he knows we are. Love conquers fear, so cling to the feet of Jesus. Weep there, be overjoyed there, find peace.
1 Keep me safe, O God,
for I have come to you for refuge.
2 I said to the Lord, “You are my Master!
Every good thing I have comes from you.”
I will bless the Lord who guides me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I know the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
9 No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice
My body rests in safety.
10 For you will not leave my soul among the dead
or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.
11 You will show me the way of life,
granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever.
Romans 15:13 (TPT)
Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with his super-abundance until you radiate with hope!
Peace to you this day!
