Peace, perfect peace

We read in the scriptures when the angel announced the birth of Jesus in Luke 2:13,14 “And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill toward all men on whom his favour rests.”

As we observe the situation throughout the world today, we cannot help coming to the conclusion that this is far from the truth. All around us we find people suffering from deep depression due to stress, and anxiety that very often leads to the brink of suicide. Psychiatrists through the use of various drugs try their utmost to combat this disease of the mind, and the search for peace continues. There is only one guarantee for peace, and that is through Jesus, who specializes in cases beyond our control.

John 14: 27 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

When your boat on the sea of life is tempest tossed, when the angry waves of circumstances threaten to drive you into deep despair, when trials as large as mountains have exhausted your endurance, remember it is still Jesus who calms the storms of life.

When you build a relationship with Jesus, He enables you to become more than a conqueror and will never leave you nor forsake you. Re-member that circumstances never change Jesus, but Jesus changes circumstances.

Psalm 55:22 “Cast your burden on the Lord, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.”

“PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU, MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU.”

Verse of the day

You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the Lord, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by chasing after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes.
