I’m Bigger…

Dear Lord; Happy Monday Father!

Well Father, I once again find myself gazing over the precipice of another work-week.

I really do enjoy my job Lord and I truly am grateful for having the opportunity to practice in a profession that brings me such satisfaction.  However, more than once over the last few weeks I’ve allowed daily stresses and anxieties to creep into my heart and wrap me in their embrace of fear.  They lie in the silence Father, longing for those moments where my thoughts stray from Your presence, and then attack without warning in a surgical attempt to shield me from Your aid.  Such was one of those instances today Lord, where worldly angst gripped my heart and laid its poisoned restraint upon my chest…

“I’m bigger than your fears, Phil…” You whispered.

And there it stopped Father.  In the light of that simple Truth the incursion was thwarted and those denizens of lies slithered back to the shadows from whence they came.

“The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” – Exodus 14:14 (NLT)

Thank You Father, for the powerful reminder today that You’re still in the business of killing giants and shutting the mouths of lions to protect Your beloved children; that as members of Your Heavenly Family, we enjoy the peace and protection inherent in Your love.

For it’s in Your Holy name I pray,


~Phather Phil
