“not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.” 2 Thessalonians 2:2
Make Up Your Mind To Live Fearlessly And Peacefully in These Last Days! message from Rick Renner on this passage spells out this passage so perfectly. It is talking about the coming of Christ and all the events leading up to it. I recognize we are facing a lot of the things described. We still need to stay in peace.
Reading Make Up Your Mind To Live Fearlessly And Peacefully in These Last Days! today, especially the breakdown of the scriptures that was given, really ministered to where I am right now. I love how God can take something completely unrelated and use it to minister in the moment.
In the past two weeks, I learned that a coworker, three managers and someone in higher leadership are all leaving the company that I work for. That’s a lot of change, even for someone who can generally roll with change. On top of that, church hasn’t been in person due to Covid exposure. My husband and I are in the middle of buying a home which will impact us financially, but we are currently in the waiting process where a lot of paperwork has to be sent and signed. I have peace about everything that I’ve been going through; although there are moments, I’m like “God what is going on?”
I know that He is in control. I had answered my other daily devotion which asked “As you listen to God speak in your difficult time, what do you hear him saying?” I wrote “I hear the Lord say “trust me. I’ve got you. We’ve got this. Rest in me. And obey. I already have victory.” Then I read this devotion. Talk about confirmation.
Prayer – Lord I love when You speak to me in ways that I so easily recognized it to You. It used to take three or four but now I see and You confirm. Thank You for growing me. Thank You for giving me peace. Lord I do trust You. Help me to hear and obey.
