Peace in the Midst of Life

“Rest is a condition of the soul…you are at rest when you are where you should be and doing what you should be doing.”  That is a quote from Randy Alcorn, in the book I’ve been trying to read all summer – “Dominion“.

This morning the sermon was on 1 Timothy 6:6-10.  “Godliness with contentment is great gain.”  The Message says:  “A devout life does bring wealth, but it’s the rich simplicity of being yourself before God.”

It all comes back to the basics.  Living our life focused on God – letting Him be God and resting in that fact.

For some of us, those are great words, we get it, but yet we cry “But how do you do that???”

I was thinking on my way home from church today that we are back to basics with this one:

1.  Practice Thankfulness  (See Psalms 7:17 and Psalms 136).

2.  Practice the spiritual disciplines (see Daniel for a demonstration).

3.  Then rely on the Holy Spirit to embolden and equip you to be the person you were created to be.
