Peace of God
Everyday there will be challenges before us. And we know only the peace of God will be our answer. So how do we begin the day?
A good place to begin would be in Philippians where we are taught the way to have peace.
6 Be anxious for nothing,
First we must not be worry. We should learn to rejoice and shout praises to the Lord for the things He has done.
Then start praying :
“… but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God”
When we have prayed and committed our needs to Him, you will notice that peace will come marching sweetly into our hearts. Yes that’s the way of the Lord. Because we know that God is love and He loves us all. He does not want His children to be anxious! Amen.
And this is reinforced by John 3:16:-
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
And Philippians 4 continues in verse 7:-
“…and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
And favourite scripture spoken by our Lord Himself is in John 14:17:
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”
Isn’t this comforting whenever we seek the Lord for His love, strength and comfort?
So let the Peace of God protect your hearts and minds.
