What’s Within

psalm 29_11I was killing time while my wife was shopping in Hobby Lobby. I happened on a rack of amusing signs. One in particular got my attention. It read :

“It’s not what lies behind, and it’s not what lies ahead;
It’s what lies within that matters.”

I believe all truth is God’s truth. Although the little sign may have been intended to simply entertain, it carried a strong Biblical truth. When Christ resides within our heart, the Apostle Paul’s exhortation of Romans 8:38-39 applies to us: “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

What a blessing to have Christ Jesus our Lord within. We may then rejoice in the Psalmist’s beautiful words: “ The Lord will give strength unto His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace” (Psalm 29:11) There is nothing to fear when His spirit resides within. 

Prayer:  Lord our greatest desire is for Your Spirit to reside within us.
