A Thursday AFternoon Bible Burst
This little post is for you - a Thursday afternoon pick me up, a bible burst if you will. A quick, true, and all together good little bible study just for you.
I promised it would only take you 5 minutes to read so here we go!
Take just a minute to let yourself quiet down. You're in the middle of a crazy day and a lot has probably happened since you last talked to God/reminded yourself of truth. Think of all that has occurred from when you woke up until this moment. Go through your day and your thoughts in double time, doing a quick recall and scan of today's events. Now, let it all go. Take a second to breathe in and breathe out. Slow down just for a few breaths. Seriously - let yourself do it. Let yourself get still for a minute...
Okay. Now, that you've centered yourself a bit, read the verse below and allow it to reset your mind in the middle of this hectic workday:
God has put all things under the authority of Christ. Eph 1.22
Ahh. Breathe that in. Breathe it out.
God has put all things under the authority of Christ. There is nothing that Jesus doesn't have dominion and power over. Which means that if Christ lives in you, there's nothing you, through Christ, don't have power over either. It may not feel that way or look that way all the time (I know sometimes my days start messy and end messy), but it's true. Nothing can truly take us down because in the end, Christ is authority over all things.
Now, again go back and think of all that's already happened today and apply this truth. Then, dive back into the rest of your workday with this in mind, too. God has put all things under the authority of Christ. All things! Traffic, cranky professors, bossy bosses, bad reports, harsh critics, negative self talk, battered relationships, bad news - all things under the authority of Christ. I like to write these reminders on my wrist so I'm constantly reminded throughout the day. I encourage you to write this down somewhere so you can go through the second half of your day in peace, regardless of what happens, because God is has authority over it all!
