And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 7 NIV
God fills us with hope and strength. As we discover His love is forever; He transform us. He helps us surrender fear and discover what comes from TRUST. He handles our worries and reminds us who is working for the good. And He lovingly leads us where PEACE is found.
PEACE is something we need. The world will try and tell us it is only found where there is no trouble. But we know that is not true. The Bible says, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NIV
At some time in our lives, we will feel overwhelmed by the challenges we face. We will become weary and long to rid ourselves of anxious thoughts. We will feel impatient as we wait to welcome calm and need to be reminded who plans our days. But faith will help us remember God IS in control. Even in times of doubt, He will remind us why we don’t have to handle life on our own.
The world will continue to disappoint, but God will allow the peace of the Savior to diminish our fear. We must make the decision to trust in Him and WORRY NO MORE! God will help us overcome. His peace will guard our hearts and He will always, ALWAYS take care of those He loves. Jesus will cradle us in His care and hold us close in times of uncertainty. He will remind us to be forever faithful…
The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. Isaiah 32: 17 NIV
Dear God, thank you for moments to be lifted by Jesus. We will TRUST in the power of everlasting love as we’re cradled in care. As we welcome Your presence of strength, help us remain faithful and put our hope in You. We will remember where to find perfect PEACE. Peace is what we need Lord; every day of our lives. Only YOU know how to perfectly provide it. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
