Thank You, God for giving me your peace, not as the world gives it. May you keep my mind and my heart in perfect peace.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” - Phil. 4:6
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. - Isaiah 41:10
Please underline this sentence: What you have in Christ is greater than anything you don’t have in life. You have a God who is crazy about you, the forces of heaven to monitor and protect you. You have the living presence of Jesus within you. In Christ, you have everything. He can give you a happiness that can never be taken, a grace that will never expire, and a wisdom that will never be equaled. He is a fountain of living hope that will never be exhausted. -Max Lucado
Peace is the opposite of anxiety and worry. Paul tells us that we can have peace because of the God who loves us! Just like I don’t worry about noises in the night when Douglas is with me. Paul and Isaiah tell us God is with us and will guard us and protect us, day and night, with His righteous right hand. I can be at peace day and night because God is with me.
Be at peace, God is with you.
May your relationship with God provide you with a peace the world cannot take away. And may that peace allow you to show another way for a world that is far from peace.
