Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. (Romans 5:1)
In a crazy world full of chaos, it can be a challenge to find peace. Often our first response to the storms that come against us is to panic and cry out for God to get us out of there! There is a peace available to us, however, and that peace comes to us through the Prince of Peace Himself.
When Jesus lived, died, and rose from the grave for us, He made a way for peace to enter our lives. We now have a secure standing before God, and peace is a beautiful by-product of that.
If you find yourself starting to worry or be stressed, remember who you are and Whose you are. Isaiah 26:3 says, “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” As you turn your focus to your Father, He will give you a peace that surpasses your understanding (Phil. 4:7). Reach out and take hold of the peace that is already yours.Like what you've read? Receive free email updates from The Voice Online: Subscribe
