Imagine a life where you go through your day with confident assurance, with a sense of peace even in the midst of your storms. Just like you would trust a championship coach or award winning director or decorated teacher…..these are guides with proven successful track records with a incredible vision for you. To get the most out of you, they ask for you to push yourself, they apply adversity, create some uneasiness or awkwardness….but we are pleased with the final product. The Bible repeatedly tells us of God’s offer and promise of peace. Trust the ultimate life coach….He will deliver on His promises. In John 14:27 Jesus tells us “..my peace I give you.” May we all remember today to learn and believe that when Jesus says something, it happens. When Jesus tells us to stand…we need to stand.
I thank You for Your gift of peace to me. I know that Your peace does not mean that I will not have conflicts in my life, rather Your peace is my confident assurance in all circumstances. With Your peace, I have no need to fear the present or the future.
I know Lord that my needs and Your riches are a perfect fit…and that this is exactly as you designed it. I rejoice in my neediness for you…for this draws me closer to Your presence.
I come to You today Lord with all my neediness, with my defenses down and my desire to be blessed. I know that only through You will I find completion. I pray in the name of Jesus – Amen
Agree with God, and be at peace; thereby good will come to you.
And the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus
