Peace in the Time of Trouble
By: Celia Waddell
May the Lord show you His favor and give you His peace. Numbers 6:26
It’s so easy to lose your peace. Maybe you just found out school was canceled until the end of the year. Perhaps you are not able to work your job right now and you’re running short on money. When things like that happen, it’s easy to lose your peace.
Whatever you’re going through right now, Jesus is the answer. He’s the peace you long for if you choose to look to Him. It’s important to tune out the voices of fear and look to the one who came to bring you peace!
In the Bible, we see time and time again that God comes to bring us peace. When the disciples were fearful in the boat, Jesus brought peace to the storm. (Matthew 8) Jesus is known as the prince of peace (Isa 9:6). Never chaos…just peace. Peace that goes beyond our understanding.
So even if your circumstances are less than ideal, take comfort in the thought that Jesus came into the world to bring peace. Whatever you’re going through right now, Jesus is the answer. He’s the peace you long for. Choose to look to Him. Tune out the voices of fear and look to the one who came to bring you peace!
Short Prayer for Everyday Peace: Loving God, grant me peace of mind, and calm my troubled heart… I pray that I am calm, collected, and tranquil at all times today, and every day I live in the circle of Your love. I rest and relax in Your awesome presence.
