God longs to fill us with HOPE and STRENGTH. As we discover His love is forever, He transform us. He helps us surrender fear and discover what happens when we give Him our burdens. He opens our hearts for Jesus.
He reminds us who is working for the good and guides us where PEACE is found. He hears our prayers. 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 become weary, in need of rest. We will need to be reminded who is handling our days and find courage in the stillness of calm. In moments to feel the love of His faithfulness, Jesus will remove anxious thoughts and pull us closer to find STRENGTH in His presence.
The Lord gives His people strength and blesses them with peace. Psalm 29:11 NLT We don’t have to carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. Jesus said, “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid… John 14: 27 NLT
Christ will guard our hearts. He will cradle us in care and hold us CLOSE in times of uncertainty. He will help us surrender worry and despair. He will help us learn to TRUST while we're held in His holiness.
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 by Jesus. We will TRUST in the power of Your love as we’re cradled in care and held in a place of calm. As we welcome Your presence of STRENGTH, help us remain faithful and put our HOPE in You. We will remember where to find PEACE. YOU know how to perfectly provide it. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for taking care of us and those we love. Amen
