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. John 14:27
Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always. Psalms 105:4
I don’t know about you but I feel swamped in this busy secular world. I forget that my innermost being is rooted and grounded in eternity.
Instead of trying to control everything in my little world I’d do well to relax and remember that circumstances cannot touch the peace and strength that Christ gives me. I’d do well to seek Jesus and his perspective and be reassured in the fact that I am not alone … He is with me.
Would you benefit from taking more time to seek Jesus’ perspective, his peace and strength? Perhaps this should become a habit!
Prayer (as a couple)
Dear Lord, I thank you that your are the source of real peace and strength. Help ….. (partner) and I to make time to dwell in your presence more, to seek your perspective and to know your peace and strength… whatever the circumstances. Help us to make this a habit. Amen
Prayer (for others)
Dear Lord, we lift up _____ and _____ to you. Help them to draw close to you and to see your perspective in amongst their daily lives and their current circumstances. Please give them peace and strength. Amen.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
