“May the God of peace, …who brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ to whom be glory forever and ever, Amen.” Hebrews 13:20-21
My plate was feeling too full. I wondered how I would accomplish it all and walk through the doors of opportunity the Lord was opening, too. My heart moved from peace to anxiousness. There hardly seemed time for quiet time with the Lord, yet I knew that anchored me in my life. As I opened my Bible and read today’s passage, there was the anchor again. Quietly standing out on the page was the reminder that the God of Peace would equip me. God’s peace settled over my heart as His word spoke encouragement to me.
The God of resurrection power gives us everything good that we need to accomplish what He has given us to do! And even more! He not only works through us, but He will also work in us and bring about what pleases Him through it all.
Lord God, Thank you that what you call me to, You will equip me for. May your peace be evident in me. Please help me to mind my schedule and seek your wisdom in what to say yes and no to. Thank you that You are working in me to transform me through Jesus. I ask for Your Holy Spirit to guide me, strengthen me, and lead me today. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Thought: Is your plate feeling too full today? Ask God to show you if anything needs to be taken off your plate. Ask Him to equip you for what He has called you to. Let His peace flood your heart and His power work in you what is pleasing to Him. Take time to be quiet in His presence.
