1 I will always bless the Lord: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
Good Morning, good morning, good morning!
I am tired, and I was just about to call it to quit. Yup, I was going to give it all up. Preaching, Studying, Praying, Churching, Pastoring. I am exhausted. It seems like nothing is clicking. Just tired.
Yesterday I was in the yard cleaning some fallen leaves and listing to some music and this scripture was being sung: This poor man cried to the Lord and the Lord heard him and saved him from all his trouble!
That was all it took for me to renege on my quit!
Standing in the yard with that blower going and music in my ear I heard Holy Spirit say, “You have not talked to me about any of this. Sean, the problem is that you are trying to handle all of this on your own. You are not consulting with me about any of the stuff you are dealing with.” I said to Holy Spirit, I am just frustrated, I am just tired. He told me, “The only way that you will find rest is to come to me. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST (renewal, blessed quiet) FOR YOUR SOULS.”
As you go throughout your day today remember these things. Number one, Holy Spirit is here for you. He is here to help you out of all your troubles. Number two, your salvation, your freedom, your deliverance is just one scream away!
Father God, creator of all, and most importantly creator of us we ask that you will show us how to take our burdens, our cares, and our concerns to you and really leave them with you. Thank you in advance for what you are doing in our lives. Thank you for hearing our individual screams! And, Abba, thank you for saving us from ourselves!
1 Peter 5:6-8
6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time, 7 casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully]. 8 Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined], and be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lovelaughlegacy/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/lovelaughlegacy/support
