What follows genuine repentance and salvation is that God's Spirit and His Word empower us to progressively mortify our natural human impulses and live according to the dictates of our inward man. We have a God who is not only willing to accept us when we turn away from sin to Him, but also to help us along the way.

LET GO AND LET GOD
God designed us to be fruitful and therefore expects us to produce fruits as branches of the Vine, Jesus Christ, as recorded in John 15:1-6. If He is the true vine and has made us His children, then we are true branches and anyone who bears fruits will experience elevation. Pastor Taiwo said this to the congregation at the May 24 Sunday service.“God created us to be fruitful, so He is interested in your fruits,” he said.
Today’s Scripture: Psalm 62:1-2
Truly my soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
Few things facilitate personal fulfilment and prosperity than a mind at peace. People who place their trust in God have a greater sense of peace than anyone else. Duke University did a study on “peace of mind.” They found that one of the greatest factors that guarantee peace of mind is finding something bigger than yourself to believe in. Our minds are troubled by anxiety, fear and adversity. But even in the thickest of storms, we can find peace by simply trusting in God.
Sir Wilfred Grenfell, a medical missionary to the fishermen of the North Sea, got a call about a boy who needed urgent medical attention. Grenfell quickly set out on a dog sleigh, but ran into trouble when they hit ice and were set adrift at sea on a piece of ice. There was no land in sight. The condition was perfect for fear and panic, but guess what Grenfell did: he killed some of the dogs, used their hide to keep warm and went peacefully to sleep. Recanting the experience years later he said, “I can honestly say that from first to last not a single sensation of fear entered my mind, even when I was struggling in the slob ice… I had done all I could, the rest lay in God’s hands.”
So, why not cast your cares on the Lord today, and rest in the knowledge that God is faithful and well able to handle all that concerns you? The Word of God gives the following injunctions, “Let not your hearts be troubled.” (John 14:1a); “let the peace of God rule in your heart” (Colossians 3:15a). The word “let” implies you have a choice in the matter. You can choose to allow worry, fear and anxiety distract you from making the best out of every situation, or you can choose to let your trust in God preserve in you a heart and a mind of peace and rest. Choose peace today; choose to trust in the Lord no matter what.
Memorize & Meditate:
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27
Lord Jesus, I thank You because You have given me Your peace. I shall not be troubled because I trust in You. I have a peace that passes all understanding, in Jesus’ name.
