I woke up early with renewed energy today. I felt led to fast totally for a family member today. I had been in prayer over this person, and felt the Holy Spirit nudging me to trust God completely. I wanted to be sure I was praying within God's will; that it wasn't just something I wanted. My prayer began to shift a little, that this person would be brought into alignment within God's desire for their life.
As the day progressed, I felt His peace. Later still, I was truly able to say, "Thy Will be done."
I believed it. Totally.
God affirmed it for me in my Bible reading. (He knows I need that.)
Psalm 147:11 in my NIV Life Application Bible states:
"...the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love."
The footnote for this verse reads, "It is our fear (reverence) and trust that God desires." My commentary reads, "To fear God is to be properly responsive to Him in awe and wonder."
I was able to complete my fast today, knowing that God is in control. He has already taken care of all my concerns and will continue to do so. I can breathe out that prayer, "Thy Will be done" and know it will be ok.
Such blessed peace. Only with Jesus.
