Peace and harmony are part of God’s plan for His creation, including your life.
Inviting peace to rule in your heart begins by inviting the heart of Christ to rule in your life. You have the ability to experience true peace, confidence, and serenity through Jesus Christ.
Because Jesus Christ lives within you, His spirit of peace is also at work within you. Knowing that you are never alone is, in and of itself, a promise of peace.
God doesn’t promise us a life free of pain or hardship, but He does provide the strength to endure any struggle, the hope to persevere through any season, and the peace to overcome any fear.
”Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
No matter what happens, remember that nothing can separate you from the love of Jesus Christ. Surrender your heart to Him and make the choice to choose peace over fear everyday.
It’s not always easy to see the blessing during hardships. Or to see how God could possibly be using something for our good. But when we feel like that, turn to the Word of God because it is your source of safety and conviction.
The wonderful thing about Jesus is that we know when we pray it reaches God’s ears. You can turn to Him and ask for your faith to be renewed and He will answer you, that in itself is a fulfillment of His promise to you.
