“Resting in the Peace of God”
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Anxiety is an easy state to fall victim to if we continue to focus on the mountains of challenges that stand before us. We are reminded in God’s word that He is able to make those mountains level and every rough road smooth before those of us who cooperate with Him.
Jesus taught his followers that a simple measure of genuine faith will move the mountains that stand before us. Nothing is impossible with God! Nothing great or small poses a problem for Him. God’s peace will fill every area of our lives, and calm every fear; if we will rest on the fact that He has everything which concerns us under control.
Continue the make your requests with confidence and do not be afraid, because God knows how to care for you. Receive God’s faith, and when necessary speak to those mountainous challenges that stand before you and they will move. Rest upon God’s promises and the facts of our redemption, and His peace which surpasses all understanding, will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.
Take your rest in God’s ability to care for you, and Be Encouraged!
