Peace

What is peace?

Where do we find peace in a world full of anxiety, frustration, and chaos?

We must fix our minds, our hearts, and our thoughts on Jesus and not on ourselves. We must determine to trust Him in all the twists and turns of our lives. We must know His Word and use it in every situation this world throws at us.

The kind of peace God offers passes all understanding. All our stresses and worries stop consuming us when we trust Him. Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” In other words, quit trying to work it out yourself. Give it all to God. I guarantee He knows what He’s doing!

Abba, Father, help us trust in You and focus totally on You. Thank You for the gift of peace.

No Fear

For God has not given us a spirit of fear but one of power, love, and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

Perhaps ‘fear not’ is repeated so often (365 times in the NIV) because we need constant reassurance that God is always near and we can depend on His love! We can lean on His strength and count on His help. He is always near!

Think about His love… Think about His grace…

Abba, Father, show us Your Presence in every part of our lives. Take away any fear, worry, or anxiety and replace it with strength, love, and self-control. Hold us close and give us comfort.

Blessings and grace to you and yours!
