The Lord is saying: Its time to rest child in my love. Its
time for refreshing; its time to drink. Stop a while at my
fountain and take a long drink, for your resources have been
drained and drawn heavily upon, for the needs have been plenty.
But I will replenish as you drink and as you stop and as you
...that times of refreshing may come from the presence of
the Lord.. Acts 3:19
we live in the past... we find no rest there, for God is not
in the past. When we worry about the future, we find no rest
there, for God is not in the future. He is in the eternal
"now" and His provision is right here when we need
When Moses asked what name he should quote to Pharoah when
explaining who had sent him, God answered and told him to
say "I AM who I AM sent me" Our God is everything
we need him to be right now. He is not called "I was"
or "I will be" but "I am". When we realise
we haven't got a past for we are new every moment and we step
into the eternal now, we find that God is all in all. Worship
and praise can be a door into that state of mind when we enter
into fellowship with him and find that "All is well"
after all. If we can learn to live in the "precious present"
we will find great peace.
I was at university, many times it would look like I would
not have the fare to pay for the train journey. One day travelling
back home I was talking to the Lord about not having the fare
for the next day to go back to university and take an exam.
The Lord showed me clearly that he had provided for 'today'
and tomorrow he would provide for that particular 'today'.
It put my mind at rest and the next morning before I was due
to leave the house a friend came and asked me to do a short
sewing job. I was paid exactly my train fare. God never let
me down in all that time I was at university ...or since..
6:24 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow
shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto
the day is the evil thereof.
