What is the cost of peace? How much would we spend to get some? If your life is full of stress, worry and turmoil, that is NOT the place God wants you to dwell. Jesus paid the ultimate price for your peace but it’s up to you to own it.
“Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. I do not give it as the world does. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid.” John 14:27 GNT
There are a lot of things that can steal your peace. Please be aware of what you’re reading on social media, what you watch on TV and even what you’re entertaining in the lunch room. Remind yourself that you’re a child of the most high God and that He knows what you have need of even before you ask. Answer every fearful thought with the unfailing Word of God.
I speak peace to your day, the peace that passes understanding, guarding your heart and mind. The peace that sweeps over you, bringing you everything you need for today, restoring everything missing or broken in your life.
Repairer of broken things, Redeemer of missed moments, wrong steps and deep losses, come press over us today. Don’t pass us by! Don’t allow us to be too busy that we miss this opportunity to soak in Your presence where Your peace is found. Amazing Father, as we sit in Your presence this morning, we thank You that in Your presence is fullness of joy, peace that passes understanding and overwhelming love.
We always come away with so much more then what we entered with. The exchange for our burdens and cares, pain and sadness is, deepest losses are met with Your grace and goodness. We walk away restored.
“No one ever cared for me like Jesus, there’s no other friend so kind as He. No one else can take the sin and darkness from me. Oh how much He cares for me.”
