Scripture- “We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”- 2 Thessalonians 1:12
Thought- We need more knee mail, not more email.
Insight – I struggle sometimes with how fast life is moving. It leaves me on edge. Technology seems to have supercharged our way of life and there can be periods where rest is hard to come by. I find that the amount of email I process on daily basis, most of it unemotional, detached responses, triggered by a bombardment of always urgent requests, can leave me bone dry at the end of the day. It can leave me feeling emotionally detached. The only thing that brings my life back into some semblance of peace is when I fall on my knees and admit how much I need Jesus Christ in my life. When I am humble, and admit my weakness to the deluge of technology all around me encroaching on my peace, then He alone can comfort me. He alone can restore me. Not matter how “successful” I might be on any day in responding to a bunch of emails from my inbox, nothing can bring me satisfaction like falling on my knees and praying for Him to come close and give me peace. How about you? Do you long for His peace?
Prayer- Lord, we need you. This world seems like it is spinning out of control at times and there is no time to find solace. Only you can restore us and give us the peace we need deep in our souls. Help us to humbly submit our need for you and to pray for your peace and wisdom in the midst of the chaos that swirls all around us.
