The Things Money Can’t Buy

What is the price of peace? How much would you spend to get some? If your life is full of stress, worry and turmoil, that is NOT the place God wants you to be. But it takes consistent practice and the renewing of your mind to get there.

You can’t wait till terror strikes to train your mind to stay at peace. No, it’s a trained response to rest in the knowledge that God is good, that He cares for you and you can trust Him. No God, no peace. Know God, know peace.

John 14:27 GNT, Jesus said; “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.”

If you’re tired of letting anxiety and fear govern you and the decisions you make, Jesus left you His peace. When you keep your mind focused on Him and His provision, even though the things you face are still there, you’re seeing it while sitting on the lap of a very big 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 me today. Don’t pass me by! Don’t allow me to be too busy that I miss this opportunity to soak in your presence where your peace is found.

Amazing Father, as I sit in your presence this morning, I thank you that in your presence is fullness of joy, peace that passes understanding, and overwhelming love. I always come away with so much more than I entered with. The exchange for my burdens and cares, pain and sadness, deepest losses, are met with Your grace and goodness. I 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.”
