Happy Selah SUNDAYYYY! Ooo I am SO excited for this one I could hardly get my fingers tap the right keys!
Alright, alright I’m just jumping straight in and this Selah Sunday will include a bit of a backstory.
On January 1st 2021, I woke up and...got on my phone. After scrolling through many Happy New Year posts on the socials, I said to myself, “I need to start my day with God.” I laid there another 15 minutes scrolling away and then I finally got up to grab my Bible.
Question: Do you start your day on social media or in the Word?
I started in prayer and told God my dreams of becoming a therapist, saving up money, doing this and doing some of that.
To conclude my prayer, I asked the Lord to, “show me a scripture that I can hold on to, one that will give me a glimpse of what I’m supposed to be doing.”
The scripture He led me to literally blew the silk scarf off my head.
It was Isaiah 30:15 and it says, “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength…”
To give context, the people of Judah were looking to different nations for military strength to protect them from the Assyrians. The Assyrians were Judah’s enemies and they were looking to do some harm to Judah.
Judah was looking to other nations like Egypt for military strength when all they had to do is be still and trust in God. We can’t help God along by trying to hurriedly do things in order to get things done the way we want.
God does not need our help! We need His! And that was the revelation God gently laid on my heart after I asked, “what do I need to be doing?” He simply said, “Be still and trust me.”
Question: Do you feel the need to help God do what you’re “trusting” Him to do? Why?
I’ve got a challenge for you. Pray to God and tell Him that dream that you’ve been thinking about then just let go. Allow God to guide you through His word, through worship, or however God speaks to you. He’ll show you just how marvelous He is but you have to let Him. This is a challenge for me too! We’re in this together, Believer’s.
Happy Sunday Believer's!
Peace and Blessings
