Scripture speaks of a peace that “passeth all understanding.” Oh, how we long for such peace. A person may move to another city or quit a stressful job. Only thing, the same worries that were over there, look up the forwarding address. Peace seems to be always just beyond our grasp. Or is it?
Peace is not something we can force. It comes from a heart focused on God. It wells up from within when we trust in His timing, His goodness, His mercy, and His promises. This is a supernatural peace, that does not come from changing jobs or physical locations. It comes only when we “let go” and trust God’s oversight for our lives.
Do you have worries that are weighing you down today? Place them at God’s feet. Don’t worry…its exactly what He desires and wants us to do. Repeat this action as often as necessary. Peace WILL flow!
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,a whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
James 1: 2-4 NIV
