DCLM DAILY MANNA 15TH JANUARY 2021 FRIDAY DEVOTIONAL
Many people cannot conceive of life without worry and anxiety. They live in an environment entirely consumed by frenetic activities. They are troubled by events around them, and literally worry themselves to death on fears that may in the end, not materialise. They develop new sicknesses entirely from worrying too much. The problem really is that while such people may claim to love the Lord, in reality, His word is not deeply rooted in them.
Yet, obedience to the word of the Lord is the proof that you love Him. Only then can you enjoy a flourishing fellowship with God the Father and the Son. It also admits the Holy Spirit into your life, enabling Him to guide, counsel, lead and direct your conduct. He continuously reminds you of the word of the Lord and enables you to obey God. In such a condition, there is no longer a place for worry and anxiety in your life.
You experience profoundly deep and enduring peace, which only the Lord can give. You are no longer troubled, irrespective of what is happening around you. He breaks the captivity and bondage of fear, which destroys faith and therefore, leaves people as victims in the hand of the enemy. When you obey God, you are affirming your faith in Jesus Christ, His Son.
And just as Satan could not overpower Jesus, even so his evil actions against your life will fail. The peace our Lord Jesus Christ promised believers is not the absence of trouble or trials, but a calming comfort and assurance that God is in control of whatever situation you may be going through. This is not positive or sheer motivational thinking. It is knowing that because you are a child of God, He will not allow the devil to triumph over you.
Thought for Today: The peace of the Lord brings calm confidence in the face of the storms of life.
Bible In One Year: GENESIS 45-47
