PeaceThursday, March 30, 2017
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Where will I be working? Where will I be living? How will I pay for it?
Often life can become hectic and questions like these can come to mind. It is easy to become anxious about the future, but as Christians, we don't have to be!
The definition of anxious is- experiencing worry, unease, or nervousness, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.
Anxiety doesn't sound good to me. I would rather have peace!
Peace means- freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility.
That sounds much better!
In the midst of chaos, in the midst of a storm, in the midst of difficult times, we can have perfect peace!
Matthew 14:29-30 says, "And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me."
If Peter would have kept his eyes on Jesus, He wouldn't have sunk!
In the midst of whatever you are going through, keep your eyes on Jesus. Look to Him and you will have perfect peace!
You can rest, knowing that YOUR God WILL supply all of your needs according to HIS riches in glory.
Start rejoicing now, life is about to get better!
You have the victory!
