Exodus 33:14 NIV, “The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Have you ever had days where during your time of prayer, there was so much to talk to the Lord about, that you didn’t even know where to begin? Trying to put everything that was in your heart into words seemed overwhelming. Well I had one of those days recently. Because I had many things I wanted to talk to God about, I wasn’t sure where to begin.
As I entered into prayer, I could sense the Holy Spirit telling me to just be still. Instead of trying to figure out what I’d say first, He lead me to just quietly rest in God’s presence without saying anything. I begin to feel His peace, and my busy mind begin to quiet down. After a few moments of taking time to exhale in God’s presence, my prayers to Him begin to flow.
I’ve been learning to take time out to allow the Holy Spirit to encourage me. He is always ready to fill us with whatever we need. Rather it’s a scripture He brings to our memory, His comfort when we are hurting, His peace when we are anxious, or His wisdom for decisions we must make.
The struggles we face, rather financial, mental, emotional, or even physical are not too great for our Lord. We can depend on Him to supply what we need. When we feel as if our resources are limited, we must look to Him. He is an abundant God. He has ways of getting us what we need. He can bring the right people and opportunities into our lives. His resources will never run out.
We will never have all the answers to life’s questions. There are many things we will go through that will seem unfair. The weight of life is too heavy for us to carry it on our own. But God’s grace is sufficient for us. Take time each day, to exhale in God’s presence. He is able to carry you.
