Enjoy peace today!
Enjoy peace today!
I started this day with the plan of having Bible study. It didn’t work out that way though. We must have had a miss-communication because my fellow studyers didn’t meet me, so I came back home since I had about 45 minutes till I needed to be at work. At this point I could have gotten upset because my plans didn’t work out but I felt God’s reassurance that I didn’t need to worry about it.
I decided that since I had more time at home I would use it to write today’s message. I had just sat down to the computer when the phone rang. It was a prayer request for our church prayer chain. I took the request, prayed and passed the message along to the next person, realizing that if my plans had worked out I would have missed this prayer request. God had a different plan for me today than what I had in mind.
We have a choice we can adjust and be flexible or we can let ourselves get upset and think that our day is spoiled. Keep your peace and trust God.
As you go through this day let God direct your steps and trust Him to show you His plan for you even when things don’t go the way you think they should.
Have a wonderful, peace filled day!
Enjoy peace today!
We can have peace even when there seems to be no peace. Having peace does not mean we have to be “perfect”. Peace comes from loving the Lord, loving His word and accepting peace as one of the gifts of salvation through having Jesus as Lord.
Peace from God is not like anything the world has. It is truly supernatural and you can have it in the worst times and situations. It is a gift of peace. You do have to choose to accept it, just like any other gift.
Having peace is tied very closely to choosing not to worry or fear. Trusting God to take care of you and care for you.
Choosing peace is a continual process. Every time fear, anxiety, and worry come to you, choose to cast those cares onto the Lord and choose His peace. When fear, anxiety, or worry come to you get into the Word of God and find passages on peace. Read them to yourself. Surround yourself with the Word and choose to trust and believe on God’s promises to us instead of whatever it is that you are tempted to stress over.
Notice here this peace is not something we are trying to get, it is a gift Jesus has provided for us. We need to take the gift.
Today, don’t worry, give that to God and enjoy peace!
Today my gift to you is this prayer taken from Psalms.
Have a wonderful and blessed day.
MIR’ACLE, noun [Latin miraculum, from miror, to wonder.]
1. Literally, a wonder or wonderful thing; but appropriately,
2. An event or effect contrary to the established constitution and course of things, or a deviation from the known laws of nature; a supernatural event. Miracles can be wrought only by Almighty power, as when Christ healed lepers, saying, ‘I will, be thou clean, ‘ or calmed the tempest, ‘Peace, be still.’ (Websters 1828 Dictionary)
The Bible is full of miracles. But there are still miracles happening today, sometimes daily. Having miracles happen takes faith. Seeing miracles takes faith. Two people can look at the same event and come to different conclusions about what happened depending on their level of faith and what they have faith in. If you want to see miracles, be prepared to use your faith. Put your faith in God, He is the miracle worker.
Jesus birth was a miracle.
26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee,
27 to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David.
28 Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!”
Salvation is a miracle.
WHOEVER, pronoun [who and ever.] Any on without exception; any person whatever. (Websters 1828 Dictionary)
HOW could one person die for the sins of WHOEVER believes on Him? Salvation is a wonderful miracle and gift that God has given to us all.
If you haven’t accepted this wonderful gift, do it TODAY!
