Peace hides in plain sight… His name is Jesus
Too often we chase after something that’s right in front of us. The challenge is, we think what we’re choosing to run after is the true thing, but in truth it is counterfeit.
Counterfeit truth sounds good in the beginning but when you start to depend on it you find yourself in an ocean of hurt with no lifeboat in sight. So ask yourself, who are you relying on for your peace?
There’s a measure of trust that must be embraced to stay the course towards genuine peace. Our trust must be in our Maker. If it’s not, it’s self proclaimed and any self proclaimed happiness will be just that, one of our own making and thus temporary.
You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3 NKJV
We can become exhausted trying to make all things good on our own.
God did not design us to go at life alone. We’re created to live under the covering of His peace and provision. If you’re there, you know what I’m talking about. If you’re not, are you ready for it?
Start right now. Take the next two minutes and ask Father God for His peace that passes all understanding over an area of your life that you’re struggling with. It may sound like this, “God, I find it difficult to love insert name, I’ve been hurt and I want to forgive. Please fill me with Your peace because I have none on my own. Praise You, Lord, for Your faithfulness. Amen.”
I make every effort to meet with my Lord, every morning in prayer and Bible study. I’m not perfect for sure, but I do know for sure, my day is more peaceful when it starts with my mind on Him.
Be blessed my friend and let me know how you keep your mind on God throughout the day.
HUGs in Him… Linda
