God’s Got This!

Yesterday I shared the amazing way that God proved to us, “I’ve got this!” You can read the post, “We Were Worried About Our Finances” here.

Today we’re looking at a promise of God in two different books of the Bible. Again, He desires that we place the fullness of our confidence in Him- He’s got this! If you have to depend only on yourself to work through the issues of life, then I guess you do have good reason to fear. But to know Him and trust Him, you are free to go on your way in peace!

I will lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, O Lord, make me charming little brother and sister asleepdwell in safety (Psalm 4:8).

Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble; when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet (Proverbs 3:23-24).

It seems there’s a litmus test for peace: do you sleep at night (without using sleep-inducing drugs)?

As we contemplate the significance of Good Friday, let us rejoice in the truth that Christ took the full punishment for our sin. To believe upon His blood shed for the remission of sins is to enter into eternal life with Him. We now live a life of REST, having placed our confidence in the finished work of the Lord Jesus!

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love (1John 4:18).

In His peace,

Renee
