Lady V’s Devotional Episode
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
People long for peace. Yet, anxiety and stress can steal one’s peace of mind with overwhelming success. So how do we deal with troublesome times?
When we look to Jesus, THE WORD, we are reminded of how He always turned to Father God in prayer. His prayer life was constant, and His trust in God never wavered.
Even though, Jesus had a moment where the stress became so overwhelming that His sweat was like great drops of blood; His response to that troublesome time was—Father not my will, but YOUR will be done (see Luke 22:39-46). In other words—God have your way.
Thus, the Peace of God that surpasses explanation comes when we turn our focus to God.
In a like manner, the Apostle Paul redirected his focus in stressful situations. He knew the only way he could keep peace in his heart and praise in his mouth was by staying focused on Jesus.
The Peace of God came by believing in Jesus, and His bountiful grace. Paul had to remain planted in the truth of God’s Word. This is why Paul could be content when everything around him seemed in utter disarray.
Likewise, as believers, we are like trees planted in the richest soil of God’s Word. It is a never-ending supply of what we need. We don’t have to worry because our lives are in the hands of the Almighty and All Powerful God!
He’s the Greatest God of ALL Time and Eternity.
And—it’s in God’s Will that in stressful times we can have the Peace of God that comforts our hearts and minds.
So Beloved, keep your focus on the Prince of Peace. Take rest in Jesus and bathe in the PEACE of His presence. Pray and let the Holy Spirit guide your day as you watch God direct your time.
It’s a new day dawning! Glory to God!
Have faith in God!
JESUS IS LORD!
Grace and Peace to you!
