CALM, BUT ACTIVE

Saturday November 6, 2021


Morning Exodus 14:14

Noon Psalms 57

Evening Mathew 28:19,20


In recent days, I have been analyzing the portion of scripture that says, “The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” As I meditated on it, I realized that what God is saying to us through this scripture is that we should not worry about the battles that come into our lives. In every struggle, every problem, and every situation in which we feel without strength, this scripture should bring us peace of mind because the battle is not ours but the Lord’s. Like a sister in the Lord always says, it’s God’s problem to deal with. On the other hand, there is another reality; God does not fight our battles so we can become apathetic, enamored with this life, sitting in front of a television or sleeping. God does the difficult work for us so that there are no impediments or obstacles in dedicating ourselves completely to our mission of preaching the gospel to every creature. This is what it means to be calm but active. The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few, and as the harvesting will soon begin, it is crucial, my brother, that you bridge the gap, and take advantage of the spiritual calm that God has provided you, actively pursuing the beautiful calling of bringing laborers to the harvest.


God is doing His part. Are you doing yours?

Morning Exodus 14:14

The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.



Noon Psalms 57

1 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.

2 I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.

3 He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.

4 My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.

7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.

8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.

10 For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.

11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.



Evening Mathew 28:19,20

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
