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 strength. As we discover His love is forever, He transform us. He allows us to see what happens when we faithfully TRUST. He handles our worries and works for the good. He lovingly leads us where PEACE is found.
PEACE is something we need! The world will try and tell us it’s found where there is no trouble, but we know that's 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 feel weary as we wait to welcome calm. We will long to get rid of dreaded doubt and pray to be comforted by PEACE.
God knows our thoughts. As we consider the depth of His holiness, He helps us dig down deep and consider WHAT is fueling fear. He gives STRENGTH to admit we are weak and discover what to do to find comfort in His love.
The world will continue to disappoint, but the PEACE of the Jesus will help us! As we make the decision to WORRY NO MORE, He will help us overcome. He overcame the cross and knows how to love us through times that are difficult.
If we examine our hearts and prayerfully share requests, God will prepare us to learn how to TRUST. He will help us find HOPE from His holiness. He will remove fear and replace it with PEACE that passes all understanding.
“Peace will be found on the path paved with PRAYER.” These are comforting words to remind us what to do when we’re feeling anxious. We must PRAY and humbly tell God what’s holding us back from feeling His presence of good.
The fruit of that righteousness will be PEACE; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. Isaiah 32: 17 NIV The Lord will bring PEACE to our hearts and provide STRENGTH in the midst of our struggles. He is GOD. He is always HERE for each one of us.
Dear God, thank you for moments to be lifted by Jesus. We will TRUST in the power of Your everlasting love. While we are cradled in care, help us welcome Your STRENGTH, so we will remain faithful and put our HOPE in You. We will remember where to find perfect PEACE. It is what we need EVERY day of our lives! Only YOU know how to perfectly provide it. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
