Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Certainly in our lives, there has been at least one time the Power and Presence of Almighty God has been so evident in a situation . That time or times when there was no other explanation for the answer of a prayer, meeting of a particular need, comfort in time of crisis or anything only our Lord could and did accomplish.
Today, let’s stop and consider the circumstances we were in when our Savior made Himself known to us in such a sweet and special way. In the same way our Father can and will discipline His children out of Perfect Love, bringing us to obedience and understanding, He also cradles, shields and protects us with caring and compassion.
Jesus lived this life. He walked this earth, as all man and all God. The Lord was subjected to temptation, yet did not sin. You know what strength and support He had in His Spirit as He endured many trials and tribulations.
He was despised, mocked, beaten and put His Life down for the very ones who tormented Him. He gave His life for those who consider themselves in no need of a Savior, yet desperately do.
Angels were sent to witness through His temptations in the desert. Then in the Garden, when He asked His Father if there was another way, Although He was aware of the tremendous suffering to come, Jesus continued on with the Plan and went willingly to the Cross for us, accused, yet sinless. His Own Father had to look away from Him because of us.
Just saying, Jesus knows suffering and pain. He understands what it is like to be alone, misunderstood, under pressure and facing something so incredibly difficult, yet still accepting the consequences of following the Father’s Will.
Knowing these things, we have a Comforter Who is here to serve in so many capacities, great and small.
Let’s acknowledge and show appreciation for the Gift of God’s True and Perfect Peace!
Thank You for this beautiful day
Please forgive our sins against You, one another and ourselves
We ask that You please show Yourself to us in situations, and please give us a heart of gratitude to You
You do so much for, with, in and through us, Lord Jesus
We just thank You for allowing us to be used by You for any purpose we can serve
Lord, please let us honor You in all we say and do
Let Your Light shine brightly
That anyone around us will see You, not us
Lord, thank You for the Peace that Only You can bring
The world cannot offer peace, Father
Please let us recognize that all it offers is counterfeit and worthless
But what You send is wholesome and pure
We praise You for that, Glorious Lord
In the Name of Your Son, Jesus
Who gave His Life that we can know peace
