Wednesday, August 8, 2012 - Jeremiah 1,2; John 10

S - Jeremiah 1:19  "They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the Lord.

O - God says through Jeremiah that the enemy will indeed attack, but they will not win.

A - So many times I feel attacked.  Stuff happens all around me and to me that I have to battle against.  God says to stand and fight.  He is with me and will rescue me.

P - Lord, help me to remember that You want me to hold my ground.  I am not to retreat when I feel attacked. I believe that You will rescue me.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 - Isaiah 65-66; Psalm 62; John 3

S - Psalm 62:5  Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.

O - David is reminding himself to chill.

A - Nobody can calm me down like God.  My husband, in the past, has tried by raising his voice at me and telling me to "Calm down!"  But, truthfully, that command from him has the exact opposite effect.  In contrast, my God somehow wraps me up in Him and just tells me He is with me.  And that's enough.

P - Lord, I thank You for rest and peace and hope.  More, Lord.
