Do you lose your peace easily?
I use to live life full of worry. I was plagued by memories, worried about the future, worried what others thought, worried about being good enough.
Our lives can be marked by worry or faith. We can work to be faithful and peaceful or we can spend all our energy worried and striving for fulfillment.
Christ paid it all. He said it is finished and that He leaves His peace within us.
Our peace is always there for those marked as Christ's own--it's a matter of tapping into that peace, dwelling on that peace, cultivating faithfulness in that peace.
Let's strive for a peace that surpasses all worldly understanding. Let's cultivate faith muscles that spend energy tapping into God's peace so that the worries of this world don't pull us away and pull us down.
Let's pray: Dear Lord God thank You for this day. Thank You for Your loving sacrifice and putting Your peace within us.
Lord Jesus please teach us to tap into Your peace. Help us to not be moved or shaken by the circumstances that come at us.
We thank You Lord for Your power and might, which are vast beyond all measure.
We thank You for Your love, protection, peace, and provisions day by day. Thank You Jesus for training us up in the way to live the abundant joyful life.
We sing praises to Your name, now and forever, Amen
