God's peace is in you!
"Cast your burdens on the Lord, releasing the weight of them and He will sustain you." (Psalm 55:22)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Jesus said in John
14:27, "I'm leaving you My peace. I'm giving it unto you." The
Amplified version says, "Now stop allowing yourself to be agitated and
disturbed. And do not permit yourselves to become unsettled." God has
done His part to give you His peace. As a child of God, His peace is on
the inside of you right now. You've got to do your part and make the
decision to live in peace.
When negative circumstances arise,
and you make the choice to stay calm and live in peace, you are showing
that you have faith and trust in God. You are saying, "God, I know that
You are in control, I know that You're going to see me through. I know
that no weapon formed against me is going to prosper." Today, choose to
keep peace in your life. When you cast your burdens on Him, He promises
to sustain you–that's a place of true peace, a place of lasting power!
A Prayer for Today
God, what an amazing
discovery to find that Your perfect peace is within me! I trust You and
will tap into that peace when life tries to steal it away. Thank you
for giving me power over negative attitudes! In Jesus' Name – Amen.
