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 ALL things and humbles hearts as we pray.
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 the quiet of calm. God silences distractions. And as we feel the power of His LOVE, He allows us to witness the gifts of His greatness and recognize how it feels to fuel our souls. But when we step away from the beauty of silence, the loudness of life tries to take control and we need to be reminded God is with us wherever we go.
Peace isn’t meant to make us feel better in 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 single day.
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. God will take care of our needs as we continue to trust and believe. He is God and He is faithful to us.
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 Your arms of strength. We will 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 trust in You. We will remember where to find PEACE every day of our lives. Only YOU know how to perfectly provide it. Thank you for taking care of each one of us! Amen
