Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 7 NLT
God longs for us to be hopeful in PEACE. As we discover His love is forever; He transform us. He helps us surrender doubt and BELIEVE He WILL handle our days. He reminds us who’s in charge of every single thing and humbles our hearts to TRUST.
PEACE is something we need. The world will try and tell us it’s only found where there are no struggles. 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
It's easy to find comfort in a quiet place of calm. God allows us to feel the power of His LOVE, witness the gifts of His greatness and recognize how it feels to fuel our souls. But often we step away from the beauty of silence and the loudness of life tries to take control.
GOD is in control! Peace isn’t meant to make us feel better for a small amount of time. “Perfect peace starts with peace with God through Jesus Christ (Eph 2:14). He helps us gain perspective as we examine our hearts and welcome the fullness of His presence EVERY day of our lives.
Because of His great love, God will help us find PEACE no matter where we are as we humble our hearts for His. He will hear our prayers and faithfully respond. When we ask for PEACE, God WILL help us find it. He will take care of our needs as we continue to TRUST and BELIEVE He WILL take care of us and those we love.
The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. Isaiah 32: 17 NIV
God, thank you for moments to be lifted with Your arms of strength. We TRUST in the power of Your love as we’re cradled in care and held by the heart of Your holiness. As we welcome Your presence, help us remain faithful and put our HOPE in You. We will remember WHERE to find PEACE EVERY DAY of our lives. Thank you for all You provide. Thank you for taking care of us and those we love. Amen
