Thought to share: do you know why you can rest in ME? Because I AM unmovable. Nothing shakes ME. Nothing troubles ME. Nothing disturbs ME. Nothing pressures ME. The enemy is no match for ME. I AM not threatened in any way by any thing. I AM forever settled on the throne of the universe. I AM secure. I AM steadfast. So you can rest safely in ME.
Psalm 93:1 (NLT) The LORD is king! He is robed in majesty. Indeed, the LORD is robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.
Matthew 11:28 (NLT) Then Jesus said, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

Thought to share: don’t let anything take your focus. Whatever you’re focusing on becomes the center of your world. As the center, it becomes the driving force; influencing your emotions, determining your decisions, navigating your life. If you will make ME the center of your focus, if you allow ME to be your preeminent thought, then I’ll become the center of your world. And as your center, I become the driving force of your life – leading you into green pastures, beside still waters where you find rest for your soul.

Psalm 23 (NLT) The LORD is my shepherd;
I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for You are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. restSurely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.

Thought to share: the door into MY Presence is worship. As you turn your heart toward ME, you open the door. As you focus on MY strength, authority and power, you step into MY Presence. As you sink into the magnitude of MY existence, you are transported from the frustrations, disappointments and heaviness of your circumstances into the atmosphere of Heaven. So look at ME and let ME fill your world.

Psalm 16:11 (NLT) You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of Your presence and the pleasures of living with You forever.
Psalm 84:1-2 (NLT) How lovely is Your dwelling place, O Lord of Heaven’s Armies.  I long, yes, I faint with longing  to enter the courts of the LORDWith my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God.

Thought to share: worship is not for ME. I gain nothing from your admiration of ME. It does not change ME or MY position. It does not prop ME up. I do not need your praise. I AM neither egocentric nor egotistical.
However, worship changes you. You gain everything by looking at MY greatness. It changes your position by shifting your perspective, giving you insight to how great and mighty I AM and how small your problems are in comparison. Praise allows you to step into MY Presence and encounter ME. And as you encounter ME, I hold you up. MY arms enfold you and support you.
You need to praise and worship ME because worship takes you into MY Presence and MY Presence changes both you and your circumstances.
Psalm 22:3 (NLT) Yet You are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel.
                     (KJV) But Thou art holy, O Thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
Acts 16:25-26 (NLT) Around midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening. Suddenly, there was a massive earthquake, and the prison was shaken to its foundations. All the doors immediately flew open, and the chains of every prisoner fell off!

Thought to share: I AM taking care of you. I know this isn’t always easy to see. When the road gets rough, the path gets steep and conditions are looking worse, it’s hard to believe I AM with you. You think I AM not listening  to your prayers. You think I don’t care.

Let ME assure you – I hear you. I hear every word you say. Every thought you think. Every emotion you can’t express. I care about you. I care about how you feel. What your going through. And I AM taking care of you. And every detail.  I leave nothing undone. I AM here. And I’ve got you.
1John 5:14-15 (NLT) And we are confident that He hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him. And since we know He hears us when we make our requests, we also know that He will give us what we ask for. 
Philippians 4:6-7 (Msg) Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
