Pray for the Spirit to guard my mind against doubt and fear.
Satan must know that God has something awesome in the works (haha doesn’t He always?!). And I feel it. He’s craftily trying to draw my focus away from God and things which bring Him greater glory.
For instance, twice last week I woke up in the middle of the night because I dreamed up multiple scenarios for ways things might go wrong regarding my trip…travel mixups or concerns about packing, etc. Menial things, but still they caused me to enter into the weekend flustered and slightly stressed. Other doubts filled my mind as I sat down to think over potential devotions to share. Like last year, my insecurities about speaking in front of others surfaced and I began to question God’s leading about teaching again.
So I was grateful when on Friday morning I curled up on a friend’s couch and randomly (or rather, divinely) flipped open my Bible to 2 Thessalonians. God instantly gave me a calming assurance of His steadfast protection through this verse below.
Please continue praying that I will be attentive to the Lord’s voice and rejoice in His faithfulness. Pray that I make it a priority to saturate my mind with the Truth everyday.
