As another long crazy week comes to an end . . . I believe I figured out “The Trickster” . . . But God says this (The Message paraphrase says it best this morning) . . .
My dear children, you come from God and belong to God. You have already won a big victory over those false teachers, for the Spirit in you is far stronger than anything in the world. These people belong to the Christ-denying world. They talk the world’s language and the world eats it up. But we come from God and belong to God. Anyone who knows God understands us and listens. The person who has nothing to do with God will, of course, not listen to us. This is another test for telling the Spirit of Truth from the spirit of deception. (1 John 4:4, The Message)
But also this . . . “Be Still and Know that I am God!” (Psalm 46:10).
My prayer today is that I allow myself to Be Still and Know that HE is God but also that I allow Him to be the Shepherd of My Heart.
