Psalm 29:11 – “The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.”

Psalm 34:14 – “Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.”

Psalm 119:65 – “Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.”

John 14:27 – “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Isaiah 54:10 – “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.”

Jesus is our peace and He has given us all that we ever have and ever will need to conquer every task that we set our hearts to.

He is the author of peace…He allows us to be enveloped in it when we allow Him to reside in us and He drives fear out of our imperfect hearts with His perfect love which brings even more peace into our lives.

Though the chaos abounds around us He is faithful to protect our often failing hearts and duplicitous minds from the wiles of our common foe.

His unfailing love for us is mighty and His word is the weapon that we must learn to use so that it will defend and protect us in the daily grind that this life often is.

Do you know Him?

-Do you have His peace within You?

Do you not understand that He is the catalyst to defeat the chaos that surrounds you?

Today…If you find yourself in a river of despair, if you find yourself in a sea of hopelessness, or if you find yourself in an ocean of darkness know that HE IS WITH YOU!

He has your hand right now so turn to Him and lay all that you are struggling with at this very moment at the altar at His feet with Holy reverence and gratitude because He has already won the battle for you.

When His eyes gaze upon you He sees a wondrous, beautiful, and irreplaceable treasure.

He sees a child that He has willingly granted the gift of eternal life and you didn’t have to do anything to earn it…He did it just because He loves you that much.

He was beaten, He was bruised, and He died a horrible, gruesome death on a tree on that lonely hill named Calvary just so you would have the opportunity to be reunited with Him…because He loves you that much.

So lift your eyes up to the Heavens and give praise to the King of the universe and teh Master over all that He has created!

Give thanks to the only One who deserves it because HE IS HOLY and there is none like Him!

Worship Him for He is majestic beyond comparison and if for no other reason than HE IS YOUR LOVING FATHER!

He loves you today!

He has a place prepared for you at His table and awaits to dine with you in Spirit and His truth so rest in the peace that is HIS peace for He is peace and it has been given to you share it with others.
