You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Isaiah 26:3
When you have been placed under perfect, (without flaw) leadership can you even imagine the perfect peace that flows from that perfect leader? Not one thing will He allow us to be overcome by if we are faithful to listen and trust his still small voice within each of us who believe.
Our last devotional was kind of like a short burst from a machine gun of the promises of God’s Holy Spirit within us. Are you ready for another blast? Acts 1:8, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. The Holy Spirit will remind you that you are God’s son, because “the Spirit himself testifies with our spirit, that we are God’s children” Romans 8:16.
It is clear after reading about the magnitude of the God head that we are incapable of knowing what is best for us, therefore we need God through his Spirit within us to interpret to the Father our imperfect prayers. It says in Romans 8:26 “In the same way the Spirit helps us in our weakness, we know not what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.” The love of God for us is truly overwhelming.
Father, your parable of the father and his prodigal son tells it all.
