PEACE 

From world events to our personal lives it seems like peace is at a premium these days. While Jesus is called Immanuel, God with us, one of the other names that He's given is Prince of Peace. When Jesus comes to be with us He brings His peace. If you need peace, what you're really needing is more awareness of the presence of God. 

Read: Isaiah 26:3 

Our lives are often filled with worry and stress with everything that is going on. But the key to peace is what you choose to focus on while you're walking through the storm. The Bible promises peace. It actually promises that He'll keep us in perfect peace when our focus and trust is in Him. 

Fear comes when we focus on the storm, faith comes when we focus on Jesus. 

The peace of God is always a great way to determine if you're walking in God's will or not. The will of God will often take you on paths that head right into a storm, but if Jesus is with you, you'll still have peace. If you find yourself running low on peace, it's time to relax, and focus on the greatness and the goodness of Jesus. 

Read: Philippians 4: 6-7 

 

PRAYER 

Jesus, the storms of life can be overwhelming, but we choose to trust in you, to steadfastly focus on you! We ask that you fill and overwhelm us with your peace. We love you and trust you! Amen
