Episode 235

TODAY’S READING:

8 In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.

Psalm 4:8

 

You can rest knowing that you are safe. You can look at this week and be thankful for all that you’ve accomplished, and you can rest knowing that you won’t skip a beat.

 

I am guilty of overworking. I am guilty of the “don’t stop until it’s accomplished” mindset. I fear that if I stop, I will lose traction in all I have accomplished, but that is the furthest from the truth.

 

You see, we get to be in peace. We can lie down and sleep knowing that the only things that keep us safe, “for you alone, Lord,” make me dwell in safety.

 

So that job you’re working so hard for? That business, those courses. All these things we give our attention to? None of them will bring us the safety and the security that God will.

 

Let us rest in that this weekend. 

 

PRAYER

Father, we want to rest in you. We want to feel safe in you. We seek security in worldly things like a job, a business, or even fame, but we know that the safety comes from you and you alone. We thank you for protecting us. We thank you for giving us rest. It is with everything in us that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
