Where is God’s Peace?

God provides real peace for us… and that includes you—even if you have a screaming baby, a high-stress job, or are knee-deep in troubles. You may not be feeling much like a woman after God’s own heart, but John 16:33 records Jesus saying that even though in this world you will have tribulation, you also have God’s perfect peace in every circumstance of your life.

So even if at this moment you aren’t able to fully appreciate the truth of God’s peace, it is there and it will make itself apparent.

1 Corinthians 15:58 says, “Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, [and here’s the part for you today] knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

Bless you today, and hang in there!

RESPOND

Father, thank You for caring so much about me that You know I need peace and rest. Restore my energy and my commitment to You and Your plan for my life. Amen.
