Peace Be With You


You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Isaiah 26:3

We are living in chaotic times. People seem to be hoping for a quick fix after the election if the right person wins. Unfortunately we have ignored God's warnings so we may be in for judgment too. Regardless, God is omnipotent and isn't going anywhere. He wants His people to love Him, serve Him, love people, and obey His word. 

What causes you to lose peace? Fear of a dictatorship.  Financial trouble. Loss of insurance coverage. Loss of a job. Sickness. Family problems. Wayward children. Fear of bad weather. Maybe you can add some I have not listed. Peace isn't something automatic. You need to decide to not be fearful and rattled.  If you say "Well I'm just a worrier" just stop worrying. Worry won't change a situation so you are wasting energy all wrought up. 

Try today to make up your mind that you know God cares about even the sparrows so why wouldn't he handle your problem. Don't just go crying to Him in troubled times but  prepare your heart daily to fellowship with Him. Get up and start each day with at least a Psalm perhaps corresponding to what day it is. Don't let Satan rattle you. Just tell him to get off your back because you are a child of God.  

PRAYER: Lord you are good and you want me to trust you. It is so easy to fear and fear is from the pit of hell. I choose peace and trust. In Jesus' name. Amen.
