Isn’t it true that even a small thing, such as the beautiful hymn, Be Still My Soul, can transform the atmosphere in the room where it is being played?
The same is true for words…just a few encouraging words of Truth from God’s Word can transform the atmosphere of our thought-life.
Read these words out loud and see what happens to the atmosphere…
You are who God says you are…
ACCEPTED in the Beloved Son of God,
ADOPTED as a child of the King,
CHOSEN before the foundation of the world,
REDEEMED by His Blood,
FORGIVEN by His Grace,
LOVED with an everlasting love.
When you feel betrayed, God says: You are BLESSED
Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side;
Heavenly Father, may we yield to the power and authority of the Spirit of Christ, Who dwells in the innermost part of us. May we submit and surrender to the authority of the river of transforming power from the Holy Spirit flowing through us, washing away our doubt and unbelief, our pride and self-focus, our self-absorption, our idolatry of any person, place, or thing we put ahead of or instead of Jesus Christ, our prayerlessness, and our legalism, and filling us to the brim with Your presence—believing You, glorifying You, finding our satisfaction in You, experiencing Your Peace, and enjoying Your presence. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
Look Up—meditate on Ephesians 1:3-8... pray to see what it reveals about the character of God.
Look In—as you meditate on Ephesians 1:3-8... pray to see how you might apply it to your life. Be propelled to ask galvanizing questions about your discoveries: "Because God is_________, I will_____________."
Look Out—as you meditate on Ephesians 1:3-8... pray to see how you might apply it to your relationships with others. Let the nature of God impact on every relationship, for your good, and for His glory..
