I was thinking this week how our world is in desperate need of peace. The peace that only Christ can give. He not only can give us peace, he wants to give it to us.
I love John 14:27 because it reminds that Christ gives us peace and we are not to be troubled or afraid. How can we find peace in our lives today? How can we live without fear?
I used the word PEACE to help us see how we can find it.
Pray—This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. John 15:4
Earnestly Seek Him–But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 4:29
Acknowledge Your Need–In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
Cast your burdens on the Lord-Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you. Psalm 55:22
Expect to feel His love–But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
Pray for peace today in the world, in your community, and in your home.
