The world is ever-changing. Think about life: 10 years ago, 5 years ago…what’s been consistent? The same? Instability doesn’t leave much room for peace. If the news is your source, it tells you that there is much to fear: violence, economic struggle, and pretty much every horrible thing you can think or imagine.
But be encouraged and let the Word of God be your source! Subscribe to the promises of God and not the news of the World. The Word is God is the same and stands the test of time.
“…you belong to Christ Jesus…” Philippians 4:7
Belonging to the family of Christ creates a stability and peace that this world could never offer. This absolute is the most powerful truth of your life. Belonging to Christ sets a standard for your life. This world is passing away, but being in Christ is forever. What an incredible position!
“God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings…” Philippians 4:7
And because you belong to Christ, you are a recipient of God’s peace! Thats incredible! His peace stands in the midst of our chaotic lives. His peace stands over our unstable thoughts and feelings. His peace stands regardless of our pain, worries, and sorrows. Rest in His peace-filled stance over your life.
“His peace can do this far better than our human minds.” Philippians 4:7
We tend to get super creative when we are in distress, whether it’s running to our favorite “hiding” place to avoid the issue or if it’s creating our own plan because we don’t believe that God knows about our struggle. Our problen solving skills are unmatched when it comes to our Father! Agree and accept His promise for peace.
Resting in His promise for peace is far better than anything you can think of doing!
My sister, let me leave you with this empowering reminder, birthed from Philippians 4:6:
And be at peace.
Peace and Blessings
