Unshakeable Trust By Joyce Meyer
I go to the library a lot to do my work, and my writing. Sometimes I search around for books to read, and read some before bed. A few days ago I checked out a book called Unshakeable Trust by Joyce Meyer. I’m only in chapter 2, but let me tell you, it’s so good so far. I take notes so I can go back to later and read them over. She mentions a lot of verses such as Luke 23:46. Jesus was on the cross, and he said this: “Father, into your hands I commit my Spirit.” Having said this, He breathed His last. After I read that verse it was like an eye opening for me. My Spirit needs to surrender to His Spirit. I wrote this down in my journal afterwards: Let my Spirit bow down to yours. Meaning we need to surrender to His will completely.
Bowing down to His will can be really difficult, but the more we learn to do it the better we get. It’s allowing God to be in control and not us. She also mentions a little bit about how we have control over what we think about.
Here are some notes I write down from Unshakeable Faith by Joyce Meyer:
- If the thoughts in your mind are worried or anxious, you can choose to think about something else.
- Prayer is our way of letting God into every aspect of our lives, including the ones that attempt to steal our peace and cause us anxiety.
- Feelings are fickle; they are likely to change at anytime and without notice. So putting our confidence in how we feel isn’t very smart.
- Trust is more than words-it’s releasing the weight of my burden; a decisive action that brings rest to my soul (mind will and emotions.)
- The waiting part is a test that usually stretches our faith in new levels.
There’s so much more I could share with you all, but hopefully that will get you through the day!
