God's Promise Of Peace

Our penultimate couplet in my "Promises Of God" series focuses on God's promise of peace. Things can certainly start to get even more hectic in the lead up to the end of the year and 2021 certainly isn't short of additional drama! I often think the last couple of months of the year can be worlds away from peaceful for many.

On top of the usual challenges, there's also a huge amount of global unrest at the moment and concerns can rob us of our inner calm and peace if we let them. I've personally found that the best antidote to worry and stress is coming before God's Throne and asking Him to replace all my anxiety with His perfect peace. He is always faithful to do so and He gives the kind of peace that transcends understanding, defies logic and remains in place through the toughest trials of life.

Whatever we're facing today or over the coming weeks, I pray we can bring everything before our Saviour and watch the power of His Holy Spirit do miraculous things in our hearts! May we cast all our anxieties, worries and anything robbing us of our peace before Jehovah Shalom today. Let us be rid of anything that isn't worthy to be in His presence and praise His mighty name as He does the impossible. Only our faithful God could remove the weight of countless cares and fill us instead with His perfect peace.
God's Promise- Peace

"When troubles have me filled with sorrow, set my eyes upon Your Son.
Give me peace within my heart, this wicked world You’ve overcome!

John 16:33
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

John 14:27
"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

Philippians 4:6-7
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
