Morning Prayer, Friday, February 21, 2020 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: TRUE PEACE
Father God, today, may peace meter may be tested. I pray that I have grown enough in You that I pass that test. Amen
"Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all." 2 Thessalonians 3:16
"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
“True peace comes from knowing God is in control." As I was driving to work a few days ago, sitting in really slow traffic, getting frustrated, I couldn’t help think about what it means to have the true peace of God. Not the kind of peace that comes from everything in my life going well. You know how that goes. As long as life is good, you are good but let there come a bad twist and things start to unravel or fall apart and we freak out, get anxious or frustrated. That is not true peace. Happy until trouble comes is not true peace. While Jesus was asleep on the boat, a storm blew in causing the boat to rock violently. Of course, like many of us, the disciples panicked. One even asked something like, "Don't you even care that we are about to die?" Jesus wakes up and says to them, “Oh ye of little faith.” It is so easy to say “I have faith” or "I have peace" when life is all good. That is not when our faith and peace levels are truly tested. True peace in my thinking is the kind that no matter how bad things get, your peace meter is rock solid. True, sometimes life hits you in the gut and for a minute, like Job, you are rattled, but then you remember that God has come through for you before, and He will do it again. Knowing that, you press on, strong, sturdy and at peace in your spirit.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
