A Simple Word, A Word Of Peace

bird nestMany years ago I found myself in trouble. Not just a little trouble but a lot. I did not know peace and I tried to find it.

Long before I ever got saved I sought to find peace. I was tortured by depression, anxiety and such. I was on enough medicines to sink a battleship.

And then one day in the midst of turmoil the Lord spoke to me and peace came in the midst of the storm. And I came to realize that His peace was supernatural and efficient in ways I could never imagine. Certainly years of self-help, meditation and seeking had not worked for me.And once you have that peace or experience that peace you will never trade it for anything else. Peace is such a feeling of goodness that you desire to walk in it at all times. So what do you do?

The natural thing in life is to never leave home without it or better yet, just never leave. Any attempt to develop a place of peace rather than recognition of the man of peace will at some point most likely fail you. As I have often said, any ship can be safe in a harbor but the worthiness of a vessel is proved in the storm. That means peace given by God is not just the absence of turmoil but a power that works in the midst of the storms. Imagine the ability to remain stable, buoyant and joyful no matter what the circumstance or situation.

To “find” peace you need look no further than the person of peace, Jesus Himself. As a believer you are able to “access” the one who provides peace.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Today is your opportunity to resolve issues and have peace in the midst of the storms of life. Call upon the one who loves you. Who cares for you and who can bring peace that passes all understanding.
