Asking myself, how does a consecrated believer keep his heart from being troubled when evil shows itself so strong as it did in this tragedy in Uvalde this week? Even the strongest soul has to dig in deep to deal with it. These are among other horrible events we will have to process before the Lord. Weepings come. Our hearts hurt with the hurting and we pray “Lord, I ask wisdom”
We need to consider this, fear not! Practice faith and wisdom to manage our emmotions. We live our lives in God’s strengths by obedience to his voice. We’re tuned into the God channel. And we renounce any fear of the power of the enemy. We come to the place of being strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. We have to let our weakness say “Now, I am strong, because of what the Lord has done!” It pleases the heart of God when we learn to cast our cares on him. He is able to use the dark events as an opportunity to build prosperous spiritual fruits within.
Yield to Holy Spirit. His graces are all sufficient. Be baptized in his loving strengths. Rise up in his life and courage. Don’t follow the fear of the crowd but pray deep with compassion. It’s all going by the book. Reign in the fear of the Lord and his strength over your own emotions. Christlike.
Tune your mind to the instructions of the word of God. Refuse the temptation to get entangled in the cares of the natural life. We set our minds on eternal things. Focus on the amazingness of his grace. It sustains. It guards. It calls us to deep places. It comforts our troubled hearts and redirects our heart’s attentions. It comes to maintain our place of quiet resolve in learning to trust all to Jesus. It builds our faith houses. It wakes us to new realities of our desperate need of the more and more of the Lord. It’s ever present in our today to prepare us for many unknown tomorrows.
Holy Spirit is our Wonderful Counselor and Comforter. I hope to share with you the comforts he has shared with me.
