And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 7 NIV
When we embrace the gifts of His greatness, God fills us with hope and strength. As we discover His love is forever; He transform us. He helps us surrender fear and learn how it feels to TRUST. He handles our worries and reminds us who is working for the good.
The world will try and tell us peace can only be found where there is no trouble. But 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
We may feel afraid; overwhelmed by the challenges we face and ready to rid ourselves of worry. We will become impatient as we wait to welcome calm and forget God is the One who knows what's best for our days. But faith will help us remember He doesn’t always remove what we want to surrender.
God provides important lessons along the way so we will recognize His timing is not our own. He helps us welcome PEACE as we allow Him to take charge of our lives and learn to faithfully TRUST.
The world will continue to disappoint, but God will allow the peace of Jesus to diminish our fear. We must make the decision to WORRY NO MORE! God will help us overcome. His peace will stand guard of our hearts. He will always take care of those He loves and help us find the way to welcome calm.
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 TRUST in the power of Your everlasting love as we’re cradled in care. We will welcome Your presence of strength, 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! We are so grateful YOU take care of each one of us. Amen
