Prescription for Rest

Going through my mail this morning at the office, I opened a letter from Rick, one of the guys in my minister’s accountability group. It was a note to Diann and me. “Bonita and I just wanted you to know that we prayed for you today.” He included a “prescription” of a Bible verse to help us, as he put it, to “set your mind on things above…”

It was such a great prescription that I’m passing it along to you. Rick actually put the Bible reference on a “Prescription for Today” small piece of paper, like a real prescription! The verse we were to look up was Psalm 144:2. “He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge…”

Rick then scrawled the words, “Choose the description of the Lord that helps you rest right now.” I did.

How about you? Take a deep breath, relax, go over the descriptions. Use this brief moment as a time to let God speak to you. Which description of God best brings you a moment of rest right now —

“my loving God”

         “my fortress”

                   “my stronghold”

                               “my deliverer”

                                               “my shield” — ?


Now, thank Him for being THAT for you!
