POWER POST FOR THE WEEK
I know you’re busy but here’s your SPIRIT inspired POWER POST guaranteed to help you through the week:
PSALM 16:8 “I HAVE SET THE LORD ALWAYS BEFORE ME, BECAUSE HE IS AT MY RIGHT HAND, I WILL NOT BE SHAKEN.”
Have you ever been so scared you started shaking? I have more often than I care to remember. But I realized when reading this verse, there is a big difference between “SHAKING” and “SHAKEN.” You start by building a strong foundation for a life by meditating on where you fit into God’s world. Fortunately I’ve never been shaken to the core, on the verge of toppling. Trying to remember God and praying daily prepares you for that moment when fear startles you. You’ll automatically turn to him with faith and confidence he’s there for you. You can then say, like the Psalmist, “I will not be shaken!” SHAKING BUT NOT SHAKEN.
READ THESE NEXT LINES ONLY IF YOU HAVEN’T BEFORE
I’ve found there is power pent up in the phrases from the Bible. They have been read, repeated aloud and pondered for several thousand years. In hours of need when I want direction, comfort or wisdom and God’s spirit I find these phrases help me feel connected to the millions of people before me who have been inspired by these same words. I feel when I repeat these words I am unlocking the spirit that inspired those original first words. I feel at peace and grateful for any help that comes from above. I send a new phrase and a few sentence commentary once a week. Look for them in the future.
