The Daily Breath of God
Wednesday, March 14 2012
Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again – Rejoice. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4,6-7 NLTHas anyone every told you that if you live the Lord’s life of grace you will be able to live a worry free existence? If we follow the freedom of thinking found in the Lord’s Word, once knowing Jesus the Christ, we will free ourselves to relax and be refreshed in an experience called freedom. In place of worry, stress, anxiety, shame, guilt or condemnation, start spending time rejoicing and you will discover joy in some of the most difficult places. With this freedom in place, thanksgiving will flow naturally and our Lord will put a guard at the door of your emotions called peace. On this new day begin right now rejoicing in our Lord. Find expressions in your face and your words that reveal the attitude of rejoicing and receive the blessing you were given in Jesus the Christ. It is called the freedom to relax and be renewed in the moments of your journey so that your thinking and emotions are free from worry. In Jesus the Christ you were made for this and thanksgiving will become a natural byproduct of who you are.
