And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
The disciples of Jesus faced an uncontrollable storm in the Sea of Galilee.
Peter, the professional fisherman, did his best to manage the boat safely, but the ship was almost sinking.
When lightning flashed, they saw Jesus was sleeping. They woke Him up and asked Him to save them.
Jesus calmed the storm. The disciples found the peace Jesus provided and thus they found themselves filled with tranquility and joy.
Do you sometimes feel your life is almost like the disciples’ sinking boat?
Remember: Jesus is with you.
Ask Him to save you. Then His peace will be an active power in your life. Rather than dealing with all life’s difficult situations on your own, let Jesus handle them.
Jesus whispers you, “I am here. I know you have confusion, uncertainty, and an inability to manage your life correctly. Give your burdens to me. Take the peace I give you, now.”
Jesus’ peace is palpable. He heals any illness, opens the eyes of the blind, gives eternal life, fights for you, calms life’s storms, enables you to do everything for His glory, and makes all things for good.
Stand up! Stay tall in your faith in Him. He will never fail you. He will continually give you peace, and energize you.
I love You.
I cling to You.
I stay close to You because I feel Your peace there.
You are my hero.
I long for Your peace.
In Your Name, I pray, Amen.
