Remember to pray & read the entire passage before beginning.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. ”
I am listening to my kids “play” a video game together right now. There is arguing, and yelling & general frustration! It is far from peaceful – I’m just waiting for the real fight to begin. The sensory overload I am feeling right now has every nerve in my body on alert. It’s so silly! So insignificant! And yet… the peace of Christ is still available in this situation – just like every difficult, gut wrenching, devastating and soul searching event in our lives. Jesus offers us that… His peace in every situation. Do not let your heart be troubled He says to us… do not be afraid. Ask Me he invites…
- What are you afraid of?
- What are you troubled about?
- Big or Small – put it in the hands of Jesus… write down your prayer now!
“do not be anxious about anything, 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 your minds in Christ Jesus. ”
Praying today that you will take your fears and frustrations, big and small, to God… Jesus is our peace. Praying that the peace of God would guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus! Praying for you!
