Better than an Ocean-View

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside still waters. He restoreth my soul…” Psalm 23:1-3a

Sometimes I feel like the only way I can truly rest is if things were quiet around me and if I was somewhere on a beach. If I was standing near an ocean on a tropical island surely my soul would be nourished and I would have the strength to go on. While it is a known fact that getting away to a beautiful place helps us relieve stress and feel a sense of peace within ourselves, the truth is, God’s presence is better than an ocean-view any day.

Let’s renew our minds to the truth that the same God who created the beautiful and spectacular destinations on earth is the same God that lives on the inside of us. When we draw near to Him, He expects us to draw from Him. We don’t have to leave His presence uneasy and not comforted. No matter our current surroundings, we can draw near and draw from His life source within us. He will calm our fears and restore the vitality of our minds, will and emotions. He will put our minds at ease and lead us beside still waters. He wants to fill us with peace and quiet us with His love, giving us assurance that He is in control and it is safe to trust Him.

Challenge: Approach God’s presence as though you are standing next to a vast ocean, expecting His presence to do for you more than an ocean would. Draw by faith from the deep well within peace, joy, and wisdom. Experience your Savior and very Present Help in a way that you never have before. He is better than an ocean-view.

Prayer: Father, help me get this understanding deep in my heart and never forget it. You are better to me than any destination I can go to. I steal away and draw near to you in my heart and by faith I draw from your life within me peace. Quiet my soul. I believe your presence can do greater in me than anything or anyone else can. Thank you, Lord.

  8. Hi my sister in christ! I really love this ministry that The Lord has given you. You’ve been such a blessing to me and so many others…but i ask one thing, why would you take down the give portion off of you page? Please don’t stop people’s blessings for wanting to give to your ministry. Even if you have enough to take care of your ministry, receive overflow from the Lord and let that be an option for people such as myself to give. If people have it to give please allow them to give. You are not begging anyone or asking for gifts but please my sister don’t turn blessings from others in christ and please dont stop our blessings to give. In times like this we need the Lord to bless our seeds and for us to receive a harvest of what we planted in the name of Jesus i pray Amen. Thank you for the love you show us every morning from your words through Holy spirit.
