When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.  John 16:13 (NRSV)

I read a saying the other day that said, “Feed your faith and your fear will starve.”  That’s an encouragement for me.  It is easy to get mired down in fear and in the concerns of this world.  It takes intention, prayer and surrender to God’s perfect will to find peace and rest in Him.

It is better to find solace in the inspired word of God and seek the Holy Spirit in the stillness than to stay mired in worry.

The Holy Spirit is everywhere, but especially in the quiet, away from the noise of our troubled minds and busy schedules.  God has our times and lives in His hands.
