I speak to you from the depths of your being.  Hear Me saying soothing words of Peace, assuring you of My Love.  Do not listen to voices of accusation, for they are not from Me.  I speak to you in love tones, lifting you up.  My Spirit convicts cleanly, without crushing words of shame.  Let the Spirit take charge of your mind, combing out tangles of deception.  Be transformed by the truth that I live within you.

The Light of My Presence is shining upon you, in benedictions of Peace.  Let My Light shine in you; don’t dim it with worries or fears.  Holiness is letting Me live through you.  Since I dwell in you, you are fully equipped to be holy.  Pause before responding to people or situations, giving My Spirit space to act through you.  Hasty words and actions leave no room for Me; this is atheistic living.  I want to inhabit all your moments - gracing your thoughts, words, and behavior.

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2

“To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:27

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?  You are not your own.” 1 Corinthians 6:19

I’ve borrowed the above from a devotional book that Denise and I read daily called “Jesus Calling, Enjoying Peace in His Presence” by Sarah Young.  This particular post spoke peace and purpose into our day and we wanted to pass it along to you.  How do you spend your days and your moments within those days?  I know life can become hectic and frantic, but I also know that there is peace in the midst of all things with Jesus.  As we celebrate and remember the peace that Jesus gave us through His life, death and resurrection, let’s not forget that He not only took away our sins but that He gave us all of Himself, and He never lets go!  God is so good all the time, and all the time God is so good!!

In Christ’s Love,


Romans 12
