Do you especially need the gift of peace right now? Is your life so busy, you can’t find time to take a breath? There is Good News for you: Jesus already knows.
Luke 2:14 says, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men!”
When Jesus ascended to heaven, He told the apostles, “My peace I leave with you.” Because He lives, we know for sure that this peace is available to us anytime, anywhere. Even in the busy part of your life, when you think you’re going crazy, you can call on Him and He will answer.
This is our theme for this week: that peace is attainable. It comes from God, first and last. You might need to get away for even five minutes and close your eyes and pray. Let Him know you are beaten down and tired. Remember the verse we just read: peace is not just something for the glorious future Jesus is preparing for us. It’s to us here and now.
Claim that for your busy life today!
Lord, when chaos seems to rule over us, you tell us otherwise. Thank you that we can simply ask and you will settle peace over us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
