I hope you are finding vacation space from the year’s work. The Spirit will speak to your heart before you return to the challenges to come, as you spend quiet time with the Lord.
The message of grace today intends to take fear away. Widen you faith-awareness of being one with Jesus; this will help flush out fear. The One within you is stronger than the negative forces without that may be pressing against you. St. John and St. Paul express it this way: “The Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world” (1 John 4:4). “I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love”(Rom. 8:38). How would you express these convictions in your own words?
What are these?
Loving You above all else vv.37-38
I’m worth much more than sparrows. v. 31
Cross I take and follow You v. 38
Losing life, I find in You. v. 39
